“Jim was played a lot on the radio, even though he was around for a short time. You couldn't not hear Bad, Bad Leroy Brown – I would listen to WABC-AM on my transistor radio, and they played that song all the time. It was a big hit.
"I got this album after Jim died, and it immediately became on of my favorites. Actually, I got it on 8-track – that’s how far back we’re going. Workin’ At The Car Wash Blues, I’ve Got A Name, Lover’s Cross – all brilliant songs. Jim was a terrific singer and songwriter, and a great acoustic guitar player, too.
“I’m still a big fan of this record. I probably listen to Jim Croce once a month. I just got a greatest hits compilation so I can have a lot of the best songs all together.
