Review

Review Text Released in Holland by BR Music, the 21-track collection The Singles has a novel approach not too familiar in the countless Jim Croce collections flooding the major and budget-line label catalogs. Instead of haphazardly selecting tracks like so many budget collections, it purportedly takes the A- and B-sides of Croce's key ABC singles (including one song, "Roller Derby Queen," without its companion A-side), and then gives catalog numbers for each of the singles within the liner notes. This does not mean that this is not a budget-line collection, however -- the sound is simply average, the presentation is a little shoddy, and the liner notes contain what appears to be a press release from 1973 (it's written in the present tense, it's copyrighted to ABC, and the author is "unknown"). All the same, this not only includes the big hits, but a few songs that don't pop up that often on other collections, which may make it worthwhile to some completists. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
