ADDICTIVE! | Reviewer: Judy | 9/13/07
A wonderful book and a great song. I had the cd so I enjoyed the music too. I was so impressed by Mr. Buffet's style. I listened to the book two times and will undoubtedly listen to it again in the future. The song still goes through my mind. It condenses the story and brings back its heartwarming message.
what a song, and what a book! | Reviewer: joe falinski
I fell in love with the song, and just read the book and fell in love with the song all over again.
puts me out on that salty shore in no time, where I long to be.
thanks Jimmy, I needed that.
And I am so jealous...I am listening to his CD audio book "A Salty Piece of Land." It opens with his title song and I realize no other person can write these beautiful songs but him..you just gotta love him and his work. following this wonderful song Buffet himself comments about the passing of George Harrison, Gardner McKay and others...It is a work of art itself and borders on bringing tears to my eyes.. Buffet just continues to amaze me. BTY the audio book is read by none other than J.D. Souther!
