Jim Croce is one of my all time musical heroes. He would have turned 77 today. Unfortunately he died aged 30 in a plane crash.On Thursday night, September 20, 1973, during Croce’s Life and Times tour and the day before his ABC single “I Got a Name” was released, Croce and all five others on board were killed when their chartered Beechcraft E18S crashed into a tree during takeoff from the Natchitoches Regional Airport in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
Celebrating his birthday with my 3 favourire Jim Croce songs and one lesser known song.
This is taken from his very first album ‘Facets’ the song ”Hard Hearted Hannah, the Vamp of Savannah” was originally released in 1924 by by Ager, Yellen & Bornstein, Inc. The words are by Jack Yellen, Bob Bigelow, and Charles Bates, and music by Milton Ager.
