Jim Croce

Jim Croce (January 10, 1943 - September 20, 1973) was an American singer and songwriter. He began playing music in college, finally signing to ABC/Dunhill[?] in 1973, releasing Life and Times[?] later that year. "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and "Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels)" helped the album reach #1.

Jim Croce died in a plane crash before releasing the the follow-up, I Got a Name[?] (1974). The album included two hits, "Time in a Bottle" and "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song". Several posthumous releases have sold moderately well.

Jim Croce is interred in the Haym Soloman Memorial Park cemetery in Frazer, Pennsylvania[?].
