When Jim Croce died in a plane crash at the age of 30, he had been recognized as one of the most promising artists of his era. In a two-year span, he had eight Top-40 singles, two of which were #1 records, and a #1 album. Three decades later, his songs continue to populate radio station playlists. Jim Croce’s enduring music is revisited in this television special. The program features the late singer-songwriter’s performances on television in the early 1970s and includes these classic Croce songs: "You Don’t Mess Around With Jim," "Operator (That’s Not the Way It Feels)," "One Less Set of Foot Steps," and "Bad, Bad LeRoy Brown." Many of these performances have not been seen in their entirety since their original broadcast. Croce’s widow, Ingrid, and their son A.J., provide commentary filled with intimate anecdotes.
