Insomniac Edition: Jim Croce – Time In A Bottle (1973)
James Joseph “Jim” Croce, (January 10, 1943 — September 20, 1973) was an American singer-songwriter. Between 1960 and 1973, Croce released six studio albums and eleven singles. His singles “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” and “Time in a Bottle” were both number one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Croce died in a plane crash at the age of 30.
Maury Muehleisen (January 14, 1949 – September 20, 1973) was an American-born musician, songwriter, and artist best known for his studio work, live accompaniment, and impact on the music of Jim Croce. His unassuming style and exquisite guitar skills were a perfect balance to Croce’s seemingly rough-hewn experiences, stage presence, and songwriting style.
