“Don’t Bring Me Candy” was the “B Side” to “Abandon On Tuesday” – Jimmy Buffett’s 1st Single.

images-1Product Sound Studio, the Mobile Recording Studio where Jimmy Buffett cut his first single, “Abandoned On Tuesday,” in 1969, was extensively damaged yesterday, Christmas Day, ironically Buffett’s birthday. The building has housed Cantrell’s Photography since 1992. Product Sound Studio is to Parrot Heads, what Sun Recordings is to Elvis fans.

Back in 1969, Product Sound was above the downstairs dentist office, and run by Milton L. Brown, Travis Turk, Nick Panioutour and John Ed Thompson. They had to record at night, as not to disturb the dentist office.

While Jimmy Buffett FAQ is not set up to be a news service, we are proud to be the Internet site to break this news story. It was through our friendship with Milton Brown that we were first made aware of this story.

Thanks to Milton to sending it our way.

Well… As I wrap up my book, I can see this is one of the areas of my Social Media I want to spend some time on…

The book is going to be releases June 4th, 2013… even with all the manuscript delivery extensions my Publisher, Hal Leonard Backbeat Books, has been so kind to give to me. I’m still in the process of polishing off the final draft with inclusions of some great new friends who has some first hand insight into the start of Jimmy’s career. More on that later…

We’ll be picking up some traction on Facebook and Twitter also.

In the meantime, I’d like to turn you on to some music I’ve been listening to lately:

First Buzz Cason…

Go by and listen on iTunes or better yet, go by BuzzCason.com – My Review will come soon. I’m too busy listening to it to write one.
