Biography

In the music industry, arguably the worst tragedy that can befall an artist is to die in their prime, when he or she is just beginning to break through to the mainstream and reach people on a national level. One such artist was Jim Croce, a songwriter with a knack for both upbeat, catchy singles and empathetic, melancholy ballads. Though Croce only recorded a few studio albums before an ...

from all accounts Jim was a blue collar hard drinking party kinda guy, who like most of that particular breed found finding tender moment difficult, lucky for him/us that he was able not only reflect his life through song but express his emotional core and what a wonderful legacy of albums he left behind....thanks Jim!

Second one arrived undamaged, but Amazon packaging for vinyl isnt at all good, they need to sort it as this is the second damaged album in two weeks, but the nice red vinyl sounds great, a great album

Here, at long last, Croce's final and best album on CD! 20 Oct. 2008
By L. Petit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's taken way, way too long for this album to appear on CD in the U.S. That changes now. Rhino has brought one of the best albums of the 70's back into the light, finally. "I Got a Name" is by far Jim Croce's best album. Alternately triumphant, wandering, heartbreaking, and humorous, the entire record begs the question, "How could Rolling Stone leave this off their 500 greatest albums list?!".

Some of Croce's best known songs are here: The incredible title track (which should be familiar to even the most casual fan or classic rock listeners in general), the heartbreaking "Lover's Cross", the beautiful "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song" (another one that, odds are, you've heard) and the fun "Workin' at the Car Wash Blues", as well as the 'familiar but not THAT well-known' "Salon and Saloon" and "Thursday". These songs alone are worth the price of the disc, but it's the less famous songs here that elevate this album from "great" to "masterpiece".

Given Croce's death in a plane crash so close to the album's release, an eerie air hangs over some of the tracks here: The title track, sure, but also "Age", which details roads not taken and love ignored in favor of material pursuits, is simply outstanding, easily my favorite Croce song. That eerie air hangs even heavier over the closing track, "The Hard Way Every Time", a song that details roads that ARE traveled, and how those life experiences shape us. In light of the events that transpired right before it's release, the final line, in which Croce concludes that "I wouldn't have done it any other way" is simply incredible.

The humourous songs are here, too. The aforementioned "...Blues", but also "Top Hat Bar and Grille" and the surprisingly dark "Five Short Minutes", which, despite it's boppy tune, is about an older man taking an underage girl to bed and subsequently being arrested and imprisoned for 20 years.

There's not a bad track here, every song is just superb, and it all flows wonderfully. Sure, many of the songs are available in various compilations, but there's nothing quite like hearing the album the way it was meant to be heard. And that album art, classic. That sepia-tinted shot of Croce smoking with that all-too-1973 font the title is printed in, just great.

Not much left to say, this is one that's well worth the purchase!

excellent 31 Dec. 2009
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Not long ago, i was on a dollar grab--scooping up tons of cheap vynal. I came across this.

Say what you want about Jim Croce's music-it's great and we'll get right to that--but what made me buy this was something very different: being four years old in 1973, singing "I Got A Name" with my mom in one of those big Ford Country Squires--you know, the fake wood sides--as it played on the radio; only AM came in cars in those days. Seeing this album in front of the big-wood-cabinet General Electric stereo. Sticking my little head in to watch that black and rainbow ABC label spin; I am still transfixed by that graphic art now, and I finally get why.

I am not sure, but this may have been, technically, the first album I owned.

But sweeping ALL that away, this is great music. Croce just had it all over his folk contemperaries. He does not have the preaching of Cat Stevens, the sensitivo whining of James Taylor, the archness of Joan Baez.

Croce had sensitivity, humor, polish, and a band that just KICKED. Listening now, I hear Croce's great playing, but more than that, the tight, fluid, almost funky bass, the musically played drums. This may be folk, but it is folk played by the best musicians. With the best arrangements.

Croce may have involved us with his folksy little stories, but this guy was smart--real smart.

It's a good thing my parents were not Monovani fans.

This Cd is great what a team Jim and Maury made. These songs touch your soul everyone who as been in love can feel the emotion in the lyrics and the way they were sung. Cd has a good mix of romantic and bluesy songs. Worthwhile addition to any music collection.

Okay overall 21 July 2013
By tunesareus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Some of the songs, like "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song," are great and have become standards. Others, like "Working at the Car Wash Blues" and "Five Short Minutes" are more quirky or out there.
