Yes sir! Jim was GREAT. I LOVE his music. We lost a great composer singer. Why do the greats go too early? Life sucks sometimes....

It's alright, it only solidifies them as legends.

Word, "Time in a Bottle" has a magic to it. It makes me think of playing an acoustic on the beach of something. Great tone to that song.

For those that haven't heard him, here:

These Dreams

Operator

Time in a Bottle

I saw AJ Croce play today. He was very good, but his amps were far to loud. He did alot of Jim's songs, and a lot of original ones.

That's cool, I found a few of his tracks online. He won't be anything though unless he steps out of dad's shadow.

Jim's the man...he's got this great style. His sound is just so definitive. Great songs, great writing, and great personality. I like Working at the Carwash Blues. And all his other songs.

^ Carwash Blues is an interesting one, yeah that one and Bad Bad Leroy Brown really sum up that early 70's singer songwriter explosion for me, that and Fire and Rain by James Taylor.

To me he's the definitive singer-songwriter of the 70's. I in my mind the 60's had Bobby Dylan, the 70's had Jim Croce. So yeah I'll start the conversation off with;

What Jim Croce song do you think best represents his talents?


My wife and my son in law (you all know him as cord) love Jim Croce. I never liked his music that much but I can respect his talent. Songs like Rapid Roy the Stock Car Boy has absolutely amazing guitar parts. I don't know if I should call them solo's or if I should call it rhythm because the rhythm guitar played solos through the whole song. Very few people can do that and make it work. So I don't like his music, but my hat is off to him anyway.

^ Yeah Maury was the mastermind behind all those great licks, You Don't Mess Around With Jim is full of them.

My lifelong friend and guitar partner from my childhood and I love and played Croce a lot. Time in a bottle, Operator, Photographs and Memories, New York's not my Home, quintessential singer-songwriter ballads-how do you choose? He was simply the best.
