With this album, Jimmy Buffett debuts his own label, Mailboat Records, and finally becomes his own boss -- befitting for a man who's made his fortune living out the fantasies of every working stiff who's ever dreamed of a beach-bum early retirement. Still, Buffett is a regular working guy -- albeit one with a darn good job -- and he continues to tour regularly, plying songs that ride on smooth melodies, quick humor, and images of boats, beaches, and bars (to paraphrase the title of his 1992 box set). This album documents Buffett's 1999 tour performances of hits like "Fruitcakes," "Come Monday," and "Cheeseburger in Paradise," for starters, then offers a new song -- Crosby, Stills & Nash's "Southern Cross" -- for veteran Parrotheads to enjoy, along with the infamous "lost verse" from "Margaritaville," JB's biggest hit. And, for still another treat, BUFFETT LIVE is an enhanced CD featuring backstage and concert footage hosted by Jimmy's daughter, Savannah, giving longtime fans a reason to get to the office…so they can boot up, nice and early. --Peter Rutter

Let's face it: Buffett is a concert performer, and this album really conveys that concert feel when you crank up the volume. If you like other live albums like Feeding Frenzy, you'll love this one.
Just as good as any other Buffett album. The songs are great and so is The Jimster himself. He's a cool guy I met him once. Anyways buy the album. It rules, Rock on Jimmy.
As a true and dedicated parrothead, I wouldn't want to sell Bubba short or insult his many talents in music and/or sheer entertainment. However, I was truly dissappointed in the quality of the songs in this work. It seemed that he wasn't all that interested in picking the finer selections, only to put together an album that would be out in time for X-mas. Many of the tracks have promise, but the vocals seem to fade out and all you hear is noise from the crowd, and/or from the background vocalists. It is sadly a reflection of the attitude that the title suggests (just paying the bills). It is in no way the masterpiece that Feeding Frenzy surely was. two redeeming tracks are the CSN cover
I really enjoyed the live ablum. I makes me feel like I am right at one of the concerts. He is outstanding
Nothing quite like hearing the best singer in the world perform live. Great Album
The music on this CD is classic Buffett. Southern Cross and Brown Eyed Girl were wonderful additions to this album. If you are a Buffett fan, you will enjoy this music. However, the CD contains an enhanced video that you can watch on your computer. It is hosted by Savannah Jane Buffett, daughter of Jimmy and Jane Buffett. This is very interesting, except that the enhanced video is difficult to pull up, and the picture is not very clear. Perhaps this is just a problem with my copy of the CD. IF YOU LIKE BUFFETT, YOU WILL ENJOY THIS MUSIC! Do yourself a favor and purchase this one!
T, Th, and Sat. is by far the best of Jimmy's compilation projects, unless you build your own on CD-R of course! Contains well mixed live performances, enough of the classics, and great ''not-so-well-known-but-should-be-songs-you-know-by-heart'' tunes such as tin cup chalice and tryin to reason with hurricane season. If you only own 1 Buffett album (which would be a shame), this should be the one.
