About this product
- DescriptionI Got a Name: The Jim Croce Story is an unforgettable, bittersweet, and deeply personal biography of the talented songwriter that captures the rise of the burgeoning counterculture of the '60s and early '70s. Written in the honest, clear voice of Jim Croce's widow and singing partner Ingrid Croce, along with musician and writer Jimmy Rock, the book vividly re-creates the days when young, talented musicians were t sought out by slick television shows but had to hone their craft in dive clubs and deal with the constant realities of supporting themselves in any way possible. It also shows the intimate, behind-the-scenes details of what went into becoming a folk music legend, as well as encounters with buddies Arlo Guthrie, Jimmy Buffet, and other troubadours. But the heart of this tale is the ballad of Jim and Ingrid, a love story that is touching in its heartfelt incence, even as Ingrid deals with the temptations of the touring musician's lifestyle that Jim was unable to resist. Like Jim Croce's songs, I Got a Name is a book for everyone who loves music, especially those who want to truly understand Croce's unique gifts and the magic that has caused his songs to endure for more than forty years.
