Album Review

Shout! Factory's 2006 CD release of Have You Heard: Jim Croce Live is a companion piece to their 2003 DVD of the same name. That DVD collected 13 live television performances, taken from shows like The Old Grey Whistle Test, and Underground, all of which were quite rare, since there isn't much footage of Jim Croce live on television. Not only was the music rare, but it was also quite good, some of the best live material he recorded, so it made sense that Shout! Factory would spin it off into an audio-only release. And that's exactly what this CD is — the audio portion of those 13 TV performances. The two photo-collage montages on the DVD — set to "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song" and "Time in a Bottle" — have been cut, since they weren't live concert performances to begin with, and a version of "Hard Time Losing Man" recorded live at Harper College in Palatine, IL, is the one exclusive cut on this collection. None of these performances loses anything heard as a mere audio track, and the collection is sequenced nicely, flowing as if it were an actual concert. That said, this doesn't offer anything new: if you have the DVD, you have this music, so this may not be a necessary purchase. But for dedicated Croce fans looking to enjoy these performances as music only, this is a welcome release.

an intimate evening with jim

if anyone can remember when VH1 still did any sort of programming related to music, they used to have a program called storytellers, i know you are know what i'm talking about, so maybe this review should focus more on the quality of this jim croce recording and less on the complete collapse of any integrity that VH1 once had. anyway, amazing album, it's so nice to hear one of the generation's best storytelling songwriters to just give a little insight into the genesis of his great characters. enjoy.

Love Jim Croce

He is from South Philadelphia, and back then for a folk singer to come out of an area where there were mainly teen idols and dowop groups, he helped set a standard for singers like Dia DiCristino who comes from the same exact area as him. Great storytellers, great songwriters. Thank Jim Croce for help paving the way!

Biography

Born: January 10, 1943 in Philadelphia, PA

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '60s, '70s

In the music industry, arguably the worst tragedy that can befall an artist is to die in his or her prime, when just beginning to break through to the mainstream and reach people on a national or international level. One such artist was Jim Croce, a songwriter with a knack for both upbeat, catchy singles and empathetic, melancholy ballads. Though Croce only recorded a few studio albums before an untimely plane crash, he continues to be remembered posthumously. Croce appealed to fans as a common man,...
