Noteworthy Now

The Coconut Telegraph is buzzing with news of a new double live collection of songs from Jimmy Buffett that drops Tuesday. (4/20)  Encores includes 22 show closing favorites from JB and assorted members of the Coral Reefers along with a few special guests recorded during the 2008-2009 tour.  Buffett, who opens another tour Thursday (4/22) in Tampa, describes the new live recording as '...a collection of well known and not so well known songs that I think provide a happy ending to a musical meal.' More than half of the tracks on the collection feature just Jimmy and his guitar.  In addition to a healthy helping of his own songs, Buffett serves up versions of Bob Dylan's Blowin' In The Wind, Wildflowers from Tom Petty and a John Prine song perfectly suited to the Margaritaville state of mind, Big Old Goofy World.  Sample clips from all the songs at Margaritaville.com.
