Photographs & Memories - His Greatest Hits
Jim Croce was a workingman's singer-songwriter, who loved to entertain audiences with humorous character sketches as well as introspective ballads. If he's less well-known than contemporaries James Taylor or Joni Mitchell, that's likely due to the brevity of Croce's career – he was killed in a plane crash in Louisiana less than two years after his commercial breakthrough. But to judge from the posthumous PHOTOGRAPHS & MEMORIES – HIS GREATEST HITS, his talents were second to none. The platinum-certified collection's 14 songs include all of Croce's Top 40 singles, including “You Don't Mess Around With Jim,” “Time In A Bottle” and “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown,” which topped the U.S. chart on this day in 1973. Warm, thoughtful and sure to bring a smile to your face, PHOTOGRAPHS & MEMORIES captures a gifted performer at his very best.
