Album Review

The double-disc Live in Hawaii is part of Mailboat's series of live releases documenting Jimmy Buffett's 2003/2004 tour. These, to put it mildly, are not deluxe releases — there are no liner notes and on the cover there's the same photo of Buffett that's on all the other Mailboat releases, only this time a lei is Photoshopped around his neck — but for the Parrothead who absolutely needs live discs of a lot, but not all, of Buffett's latter-day work (since a lot, but not all, of the shows were released on disc), that probably doesn't matter, since having documents of individual shows matters more than either the packaging or music itself. The music itself is fine, as it goes, but apart from a couple of cuts with Henry Kapono, a "Why Don't We Get Drunk" on ukuleles, and a version of "Quiet Village" with that tune's author, Martin Denny, there's nothing in the set lists or performances that distinguishes it from any of the other Mailboat releases, or any of the other live albums in his catalog, but that still might be enough for the Parrotheads.

Customer Reviews


Perfect album for a party of any sort. This release has every great hit. The live aspect truly highlights this album.

Missing Bonus Video Coverage

This album -- a solid addition to any Parrothead's collection and a nice snapshot of Jimmy's recent live sound for those less familiar -- is a dollar cheaper and includes a bonus DVD at Amazon. At least iTunes should include the bonus video if it's going to charge so much -- otherwise, I'd go ahead and get the physical CDs with bonus DVD elsewhere.

Live in Hawaii

Typical Buffett, corny narration followed by classic songs with a tropical twist. Buffett sounds more polished in this live version but it sounds very similar to You Had to Be There Live recorded in the Fox Theater in Atlanta. Having followed his career for over 20 years I can truly say that JIMMY BUFFETT music is timeless and this is a must for the true Parrot Heads.

Jimmy Buffett translated his easygoing Gulf Coast persona into more than just a successful recording career -- he expanded into clothing, nightclubs, and literature -- but the basis of the business empire that kept him on the Fortune magazine list of highest-earning entertainers was his music. Born in southern Mississippi and raised in Alabama, Buffett moved to Nashville to try to make it in country music in the late '60s. After signing to the Barnaby label, he released one album, 1970's Down to...
