Don't Stop the Carnival is the twenty first studio album by American singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett and was released in April 1998. It is based on the 1965 novel of the same name written by Herman Wouk. Wouk also worked with Buffett to produce the Don't Stop the Carnival stage play that lasted only a short run in Miami. The album includes 20 original compositions by Jimmy that were recorded to promote the stage play. It reached #15 in the Billboard 200 albums chart. It was Buffett's first album release with Island Records.
