Jimmy Buffett is home for the holidays, occupying his usual laid-back, Caribbean-influenced, folky territory, this time with a Christmas twist. Parrotheads and regular folks alike will enjoy these mellow, witty versions of old favorites (Buffett's "Jingle Bells" includes the line, "A day or two ago/I thought I'd make a run/To Port Antonio/I be cruisin' in the sun") as well as Buffett originals such as "A Sailor's Christmas" and "Ho Ho Ho And A Bottle Of Rhum."
Most of CHRISTMAS ISLAND is lighthearted fun, but the final track, "Merry Christmas, Alabama," provides a touch of nostalgia. Buffett was born on Christmas day 1946, and the song includes thanks to "my saints and guardian angels/Who protect me as I roam."
