Bet his box set: Boats, Beaches, Bars, and Ballads. You can get it used on Amazon for about $11 (including shipping). You will get about 70 of his greatest songs made before he kinda sold out.

Some great choices....

A1A is considered his classic work by many parrot heads, I'd start with that album, Side B is pretty strong for boat music

Side A

"Making Music for Money" (Alex Harvey) 4:01
"Door Number Three" (Jimmy Buffett, Steve Goodman) 3:03
"Dallas" (Roger Bartlett) 3:25
"Presents to Send You" (Jimmy Buffett) 2:40
"Stories We Could Tell" (John B. Sebastian) 3:18
"Life Is Just a Tire Swing" (Jimmy Buffett) 3:04

Side B

"A Pirate Looks at Forty" (Jimmy Buffett) 3:57
"Migration" (Jimmy Buffett) 4:13
"Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season" (Jimmy Buffett) 4:21
"Nautical Wheelers" (Jimmy Buffett) 3:35
"Tin Cup Chalice" (Jimmy Buffett) 3:38

"Kinda sold out"?
How about COMPLETELY sold out.

In H.S. and college - late 80's early 90's I was as big a Buffett fan as there was

Now, I can't believe that I was that into him.

BTW, one of the songs noted earlier - "Boats to Build" was written by Guy Clark, who, IMHO is the greatest American songwriter of our generation. And yes, I'm including Bob Dylan in that group.

Default Guy Clark

Unfortunately we lost Guy Clark, along with a lot of other great musicians in 2016.

If you're not familiar with Guy Clark, I suggest you check out his music. I'll try to post some suggestions later, I've got to go right now.

But I'll leave you with this. In describing Guy Clark, Lyle Lovett said, "The first time I heard a Guy Clark song, I thought it made everything I'd heard up to that point something other than a song."

I apologize if I hijacked this thread, so I'll start my own Guy Clark thread tomorrow.

All the songs mentioned are great.
However,
No one has mentioned the great filling station holdup or the peanut butter conspiracy song.

Yea I was the same way as were all of my friends that fished and hunted & tried to act out his songs as teenagers :0 He lived for a little while fifteen miles away his daughter, alot younger, went to our school.

There was a documentary on HBO or Showtime about the drugs going through the Everglades back in the day. One of the guys at the end of the show said something like, Jimmy Buffett is a manatee hugging son of a bitch, but we love this song & then he started playing Pirate Looks at Forty on this guitar. Thought that was pretty funny.

I still listen to all his old stuff & play it alot on the guitar. some favorites but could go on all night:

That's What Living is to Me
Cowboy in the Jungle
God's Own Drunk
Dreamsicle
Door Number Three
Captain & the Kid
In the Shelter
Turnabout

etc. etc.

New songs I like

Me & my guitar
Coast of Carolina
Semi Tru Story

The theme of ALL Buffett songs can be summed up by one song "Changes in latitude, changes in attitude". Nothing like driving south on A1A/US 1, playing Buffett, and just mellowing out.

He Went to Paris. The lyrics are so good that they border on fine literature.

One of my favorite pandora channels is "pencil thin moustache" which incidentally is a great Buffett song. Gypsies In the palace is another I like.
