Jim Croce

I recently purchased all his studio albums on CD to replace my old LP's and 45rpm's and it got me thinking, does anybody else here love Jim Croce as much as I do? 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?

^ I was just playing Box#10.

Yeah I like how he balances out the mellow with stuff like 'Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown'.

My guitar teacher is really in to him, but I've only heard a handful of his songs.

^ I highly recommend picking up 'Life & Times' Heartie, it's a good record to get into Croce.

You Don't Mess Around With Jim would be my favorite... but I only have a Greatest Hits CD so I've heard only about 15 songs of his or so.

That one's good. I prefer Bad, Bad Leroy Brown though if you're talking about more up-tempo Croce songs.

Haven't gotten too into Croce, but I've loved "Have to Say I Love You in A Song" since I was a kid.

To everybody just getting into Croce, pick up 'Life & Times' at your local CD shop. Good place to get started.

Jim Croce's pretty good. I especially like "I Got a Name." Of course, not quite as good as Gordon Lightfoot.
