I gotta agree . . .

"If the well is dry, perhaps Jimmy should retire. I am saddened when I see yet another three live albums with 99 percent of the same stuff. Changing a verse and a few licks ain't enough to deliver value. Meethinks bubba needs a new marketing consultant. I (FWIW) think the Jimmy brand should be reinvented around small gems, rather than quantity. Just stop the greatest hits machine, and start making art again. I always thought it was clever the way Jimmy worked the brand. Now it's starting to give me the creeps. Jimmy needs to think more like Andre Agassi and less like Anna Kournikova."
England should be so lucky

"Why are most people complaining about this DVD? If, like me, you lived in England, you'd be grateful for any crumb of the great man. He's never played on the radio and I couldn't even begin to think when he was last in England. I'd give anything to be a real live Parrothead at a Jimmy Buffett concert but in the meantime have to make do with what little is available, for which I am VERY grateful. Whilst a full length concert DVD would be great, I for one am more than happy with this mini DVD. You folks in the U.S. should be grateful you have this treasure of a man in your midst!"

"For the money, it's not a bad DVD. But seeing as I haven't seen Brother Jimmy in over 12 years, well, he just seems...tired. The performances are, for the most part, good, but it appears as though the fun's gone out of it for JB. He moves about the stage and plays with the audience as only he knows how, but it seems forced. And when he breaks into "Tiki Bar" (he sits through all of it), it looks as though he's just trying to catch his breath.
The production is too big, too much stuff, the band (especially the drummer) seems to be mailing in their performances, and it just doesn't seem fun.
I give it three because it's Jimmy, but for any other artist, one at best for this. Maybe what the critical Parrotheads have said on his website is true, maybe "corporate Jimmy" has said enough. And that's hard enough to say."
A True Parrothead!!!

"This is a great DVD for $5.88! What do you people expect. I would recommend this DVD to any true Parrotheads out there. Knees of My Heart is awesome. It's just Buffett and the Coral Reefers jamming on the porch:)"
