A Tribute to Jim...

Today is September 20, 2017… exactly 44 years since Jim Croce was killed in an airplane crash.  An incredibly talented singer and songwriter, Croce was at the height of a great career when he died.  A gigantic smile, that’s what you see on most pictures of Jim, and when he performed the smile never went away… and yet one of his records was sold in a sleeve with a big frown on Croce’s face.  “Workin’ at the Carwash Blues” was a top 40 hit in 1974, months after Croce’s death.  I loved the song, mostly because of the message, today it’s a forgotten oldie.  Today it’s also our tribute to the late, great Jim Croce.
