Jimmy Buffett's major label debut (the title takes off from a sappy piece of late '50s teen pop by country singer Marty Robbins) is a bit more folky and laid back than you might expect. There are hints of the rowdier Buffett persona to come, but by and large this is early '70s mellow singer-songwriter stuff, albeit with cleverer than usual lyrics.
Highlights include "Death of an Unpopular Poet," a delicately arranged story song about a poet whose posthumous success leads, literally, to the dogs; "They Don't Dance Like Carmen No More," a nostalgic remembrance of '40s big-fruit wearer Carmen Miranda; and "My Lovely Lady," an enthusiastic paean to a woman who "can eat her own weight in crabmeat." There's also the immortal "Why Don't We Get Drunk," a song whose next line--"and screw"--raised eyebrows in 1973, although post-Eminem it's less likely to do so.
