The two-CD/one-DVD set Live in Anguilla
is part of Mailboat's long line of live Jimmy Buffett releases, and even if this contains many of his familiar standards, there's a new twist here. This was a concert recorded in an intimate setting, at the bar of reggae vocalist Bankie Banx
in Rendezvous Bay in Anguilla -- a very cozy surrounding for a singer/songwriter who often plays much larger venues back in the states. Just over 3,000 concert-goers were able to attend and they paid for the privilege, but the money was turned over to charities and the set was documented for the Parrotheads back home. Those Parrotheads will find this set to be appealing -- not too much different from the standard Buffett set, but there are a handful of songs previously unavailable on a Buffett live album, and there is an appropriately relaxed vibe here that makes for a good time.
