When sunny Philadelphian folkateer Croce died in a plane crash in September 1973 (the day after Gram Parsons’ demise), he was just starting to peak. “Time In A Bottle” soon became a posthumous US chart-topper, but?as Parsons went on to canonisation?Croce’s star had all but faded by the 1980s. A pity, because he popped out airy melodies by the handful, picked guitar sweetly and sang like a blue-collar James Taylor. Includes the sprightly “You Don’t Mess Around With Jim”.
