Jim Croce

Posted in music by adeli on September 20, 2009

Jim Croce, whose hits included “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” and “Time in a Bottle,” was born on January 10, 1943. The American folk rock singer-songwriter died in a plane crash on September 20, 1973 at the age of 30.

His first album You Don’t Mess Around With Jim included “Operator” and “Time in a Bottle.” His second album Life and Times included the number one hit “”Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.”

Jim Croce completed recording his third album I Got a Name just a week before his untimely death. This posthumously-released album included the title track, “I’ll Have to Say I Love You in a Song,” and “Workin’ at the Car Wash Blues.”

Other Jim Croce songs I like are “Lover’s Cross,” “One Less Set of Footsteps” and “New York’s Not My Home
