Buffett Live – Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays is a live album by American popular music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. It was released on November 9, 1999. The album's material was culled from several concerts during the Don't Stop That Carnival Tour (1998) and Beach House on the Moon Tour (1999). It was the first live album by Buffett since Feeding Frenzy was released in October 1990 and Mailboat Records' debut release.

Chart performance

The album reached No. 37 on the Billboard 200 album chart, No. 33 on the Independent Chart, and No. 8 on the Internet Chart. It was certified gold in October 2000.

Songs

The album features fan-favorites as well as new or obscure songs that never made it on a previous live release, such as "Fruitcakes", "Trying to Reason With Hurricane Season", "Brown Eyed Girl", "Tin Cup Chalice" and "Love and Luck".

While it is not part of the SYKBH and there has never been a studio release, "Southern Cross" makes its first official release. It was well received when Buffett starting performing it during the Banana Wind Tour (1996) and became a concert staple from 1998 ever since. The song continues to be played at nearly every show and remains a concert favorite, despite never having been recorded in the studio.

The album also features "Pencil Thin Mustache" and "Son of a Son of a Sailor", songs that haven't appeared on a live album for nearly fifteen years.

The remainder of the album features concert standards. Although played at every show, three of the SYKBH failed to make the cut: "A Pirate Looks at Forty", "Why Don't We Get Drunk", and "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes" (the latter also left off of Buffett's previous live release, Feeding Frenzy).

The track listings show that "Margaritaville" includes the infamous "lost verse". During an East Hampton benefit concert, Buffett forgot that he had included the lost verse on his first live album You Had to Be There and apologized for making it appear that it was the lost verse's debut on this album.

The studio version of "Love and Luck" is available on Boats, Beaches, Bars and Ballads.
