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.
