Essential Mixes — Jim Croce

I am working towards fulfilling my contractural obligation as a contributing columnsist over at Cultural Offering, Music Division.

Read about Jim Croce here.  Jim Croce        th

I could  write a book about Croce. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time. I have intentionally left off  some of the big hits. Personally, I don’t think the were his best music and this blog is about what I think.  These songs, all but one, are filled with great one-liners and hook phrases. Croce was very good at weaving words together.  

Don’t believe me?  Take a listen for yourself and if you are older than 50, enjoy the stroll down memory lane.
