Blame it on New Orleans…Mac Does

Walked back to the Hotel to get my Meds at lunch, and was treated to this video of my friend Mac McAnally singing “Blame It On New Orleans.

Today is good already. Thanks Mac!

Jimmy’s New Album – Part I: “First Things First”

A lot of thoughts and memories flow through my head when I hear a New Jimmy Buffett Album is coming out. Thoughts of where I was when I first listened to one of his new albums?  And  questions too. Like just how many albums has Jimmy put out? Which ones do you count? Live Albums? Compilation Albums? Does a Movie Sound Track Album like Rancho  Deluxe count? What about pre-ABC/Dunhill like High Cumberland Jubilee or Down to Earth? Do you count Christmas Albums? How many songs has Jimmy recorded? Who joined  Jimmy in writing any of  the new songs? Was it a collaboration? Where do I buy it? Do I just download  it? I could go on and on.

That’s why I like this Blog format. I don’t have to address it all. I don’t have to do a complete article or review. All I have to do is put down my thoughts that I have time for on any particular  day.  So it is that I did first things first. I downloaded the Buffet Hotel from iTunes.

With that, I’m going to spend what time I have to spare tonight listening to it. I can’t wait to hear his version of Nobody From No Where and compare it to Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack’s version. And I really liked Rumba Man the one time I heard it on Radio Margaitaville. The iTunes download came with a huge Digital Booklet too. You can bet I’m going to read the heck out of that.

This is the perfect time for you new followers of this Blog to start contributing with your view of the new album to. So while I give it a listen, you get your copy and let’s share our thoughts.

Man, I’d love to be a Fly on the wall up in LaLa Land next week

The other weekend when I was talking to Will Kimbrough after his show down at Pirates Cove at Gulf Shores, and he mentioned that he, Mac, Mike and Marshall Chapman were going to be recording at LaLa Land in Muscle Shoals. I forgot to ask it that was for “Public Consumption,” but since he just mentioned it on Will Kimbrough’s Blog I guess it’s save to mention here. I can’t wait to hear some of the stuff that get recorded at this session. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear anything.

Sounds like a Man with a Plan and a Place of His Own!
