Live at Fenway Park is a live album by American singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett and is one of number of Jimmy Buffett sound board live albums recorded directly from the mixing console without further editing thus resembling bootleg recordings.

The album was recorded at Fenway Park ballpark in Boston, Massachusetts on 10 September and 12 September 2004, two dates on Buffett's License to Chill Tour. It was released in November 2005 on two compact discs on Mailboat 2115 and includes a DVD containing 55 minutes of footage from the two shows. It was produced by Michael Utley, a member of Buffett's Coral Reefer Band.

Songs[edit]

The album includes all of the songs in Buffett's "Big 8" songs that he nearly always performs in concert. Due to the location of the concert in the home stadium of Major League Baseball's Boston Red Sox, Buffett performed several related songs including baseball anthem "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," Red Sox' fan favorite "Sweet Caroline," originally by Neil Diamond, and "Respect," made popular by Aretha Franklin, alluding to the Red Sox success in 2004 (they would go on to win the 2004 World Series) after years of poor performance. Buffett also performed "Boat Drinks" which he says is the only of his songs written in and about Boston.

Chart performance[edit]

Live At Fenway Park hit #41 on the American Billboard 200 album chart and #2 on the Independent Albums chart.
