Yesterday I watched a full JB concert from 1985, and right there on stage was Timothy B. Schmidt (the originator of the term "Parrot Head") That looked like an absolute fantastic, fun gig. I never would have gone back to the Eagles. I'd a told them to call Randy.

I once attended a songwriting workshop with Keith Sykes, who co-wrote "Volcano" with JB. That was fun. We did a few Buffet tunes at last Thursday's bluegrass jam.

Thanks for the lead on this. I've owned and listened to a lot of JB stuff but was not familiar with Encores. I downloaded it from Amazon and am listening to it right now...

Agreed... especially with what I have heard over the years about Henley and Frey's.... personalities...

Here’s an interview with Taylor that lays it out pretty clearly:

First, I am a huge fan of Fingers. I'm glad he later recorded a few tracts with the band after leaving. He was one of the main attractions in Buffett's music for me. I also love the albums Fingers did on his own. He allowed me to have the house sound man record him with Johnny Sansone and a band at the Double Door in Charlotte with the intent of maybe releasing a live album of that, but there were some issues with the recording. But I have a two CD set of the show and cherish it. I wish he was still mentally with us.

As far as him leaving the Coral Reefer Band, that is not the whole story. Have you wondered why there were not similar reactions/defections from other long term band members? Are you aware of the issues when Fingers joined Don Middlebrook and Living Soul for ~3 years after leaving Buffett?

As I said earlier, Buffett did not want Fingers to leave. Other band members did not want Fingers to leave. Buffett kept quiet and never said anything negative.

I miss Fingers.

Yeah, should have noted that this was Taylor’s perspective…and he does come across as a little arrogant in the interview. Until this thread, I didn’t know there were issues…

Anyone here playing One Particular Harbour have any idea of the proper phrasing for the ending upper chorus section?

"Ua pau te maitai no te fenua te zai noa ra te ora o te mitie"

Since it's covered up by the main line it's impossible for me to tell how to sing it, which I just decided I wanted to experiment with doing. If it was in English it would be easier to pick out, but I guess it's Polynesian and I'm not sure where the first half ends and the second half starts. Such a signature part of the ending and any help would be much appreciated, otherwise I'll just keep trudging along.

Doesn't anyone play One Particular Harbor with the ending vocals? As large as the Jimmy Buffett contingent seems here I assumed there'd be at least a couple who play it, possibly on a regular basis even.

I'm trying to add as many tunes as possible before we have a Jimmy Buffett Margarita night here in the next couple of weeks and am open to any additional suggestions, as my 11 songs will run out pretty quickly if I don't add some more soon!

Are you talking about what the female background singers do at the very tail end of the studio recording?

Yes, I really want to do that part too and have been trying to figure out the phrasing. It'd be great to have a singing partner again and do both parts over the top of each other.
Have you done all of it, or have any friends playing with all the singing parts?

Cheeseburger, Grapefruit, Monday, Pirate, Changes, Paris, Mustache and, of course, M-ville are all the iconic I need….

As far as playing some Buffett songs that may be off of the beaten path and people may not be familiar with, I've always felt this is one that will get the crowd engaged.

I played "Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On" at an open mic last week and I had several self-proclaimed Parrotheads mentioned that they had never heard that song before. They promised to dig into Buffett's newer stuff as there are some gems hidden in there as well.
