A Little Monday Music - 45th Anniversary of "A1A" - Jimmy Buffett

Starting The Week off on a High Note
  • I have decided to try and start each new week off on a positive high note. But being a glass half empty kind of guy I suspect things will turn into crap soon enough.

A1A or A-1-A is the fifth studio album by singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett and the third major label album in Buffett's Don Gant-produced "Key West phase."
A1A is my favorite Buffett album. He is at the peak of his singing, music and poetry. It is hard to believe it is 45 years old. Where has the time gone?
The album is named for Florida State Road A1A that runs mostly along the Atlantic Ocean and is the main road through most oceanfront towns. It is also referenced in the song "Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season". 
The album's original back cover is a photograph of a section of A1A.
