Jim Croce – Photographs & Memories, His Greatest Hits

2 Feb


What can be said about Jim Croce other than he is without question the definition of what a singer/songwriter is considered to be. His stories seem timeless yet from their era all in the same motion. I can tell you that all artifacts encountered were well enjoyed with pristine examples being elusive and difficult to locate. This speaks to his universal appeal and enduring popularity. Presented here are fourteen tracks that OD and the Captain hope you enjoy.     CB

Release: CB013

    Pleasant enough and a nice quad sound, but musically something I probably won’t return to. I couldn’t make my mind up whether it was trying to be Country or a more UK style folk music.

    this is believed to be QS encoded on the CD as well? I have one CD and it is CLEARLY matrixed as the decoding on my receiver gets discreet four channel. but it may have been another Croce best of… Can’t wait to hear your work.

      I tried a copy of this album on CD and it wasn’t encoded. To date i’ve found none of these Command quad albums on CD.

    Got the DVD edition of Have You Heard – Jim Croce Live (2003) awhile back which is also well worth tracking down for fans of the man. Great to hear his recorded output in quad!

    Thank you for this release. A collection of gentle songs with an equally gentle quad mix, perfect for a snowy morning. I’m going to play this one quite a bit.

    Thanks so much for this. He was a charming storyteller in his concerts. And his lead guitarist Maury Muehleisen was also a fine musician. He died at age 24 in the same plane crash that killed Jim Croce.

    inside.jpg and booklet.jpg seem to be problematic. They won’t open by double clicking in Wiindows (would normally open in Windows Photo Gallery) saying “The file appears to be damaged or corrupt”, nor will they open in Paint. But the open perfectly well in Photoshop Elements and alos Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Is there anything unusual about them as jpegs?

    front.jpg and back.jpg open fine.

      No problem here with the images but I’m on a Mac. I wouldn’t be surprised if these files are just too big for Windows to handle with the simpler programs (north of 100mb).

      No problem on my Windows-PC too.

      But both of the files are very large (about 100 MB each). I think that could be make problems in the Windows Photo Gallery. I use IrfanView (freeware) for open graphic-files and there is no problem (except a little delay time for showing the files because of their size).

      To the music: Very fine to listen to these amazing songs of Jim Croce in quadro. Thank you for this experience!
