On This Day in 1973 – Jim Croce Messes Around and Goes Gold

Facebook

On this day in 1973 Jim Croce’s album “You Don’t Mess Around With Jim”, featuring the amazing title track AND “Operator”, “Time In A Bottle”, “New York’s Not My Home” and “Rapid Roy (The Stock Car Boy)”, was certified Gold.

Here’s the famous title song:

My personal favorite Croce song is “Rapid Roy (The Stock Car Boy)”. Here’s that one:

Jim would die in a plane crash outside of Natchitoches, Louisiana in 1973. Croce was flying to Sherman, Texas, for a concert at Austin College. He was just 30 years old.
