    I’m really glad he came along when he did. Otherwise he would have been looking for his best old ex friend Ray on Facebook.

    Timing is everything

    This is my favorite. Released a day after he died as a single on my Dad's birthday in 1973. I remember hearing it on the radio the next morning...right before I got the news my Dad had died the night before. Its a very important song to me, and although Croce didn't write it...it's how I remember him and my Dad.

    One of my favorites too. I didn’t realize he didn’t write that one. Very special song for you indeed. Mull of Kintyre is that way for me. My father passed to that song. It was on a Scottish folk album he asked to have on.

    I just left a Jim Croce playlist on for about an hour. So many great songs I hadn’t heard in a while and some greats I never knew existed.

    What a loss.

    I was singing this song yesterday (not seriously, just for fun) and thinking how Croce is one of a very few 70s artists that I can listen to and enjoy.
    What a great writer!

    There's an awesome documentary style video about him on youtube and I was amaze just how much he accomplished in such a short amount of time. He released his first 2 albums simultaneously in early 72 and died in Sep 73. Three of his big hits were released posthumously.
