I owned this album 35 years ago, when I was just a teenager, but sadly let it go with all my albums when converting to CD. I have since waited and waited for it to be released on CD, and finally gave up and purchased it in album form (used) again. I am thrilled at the condition this album is in...the reseller rated it as in Very Good condition, but I find it excellent! Cover and jackets are all intact with no tears or folds, and the album looks practically unused! Jim Croce''s early music brings me much joy and and I am glad to have this back in my collection. What a loss to the arts he was.

On the posthumously released Jim Croce double-LP THE FACES I''VE BEEN, it''s obvious that his post-folk era recordings have been gently augmented with occasional strings, echo, backing vocals and additional instruments, but Croce comes through so clear.

Most surprising is a melancholy ballad Jim wrote and waxed in July ''66. Perhaps due to the later addition of Cashman and West, "Gunga Din" could easily fit in with the run of great Croce songs released in that golden year of mid 1972 to mid ''73. It''s not alone, though. "Country Girl" evokes the chord changes of "Photographs and Memories."

With added quiet strings, Jim''s balladic cover of "Old Man River" is quite lovely. "Which Way Are You Goin'', "Mississippi Lady" and "King''s Song" were written during 1971 sessions for YOU DON''T MESS AROUND WITH JIM , the album that started his meteoric rise. Their similarity to that record''s content is unmistakable.

There''s also filler. The oldest two cuts (from ''63) are straight imitations of the Weavers and Kingstons. Side Four is "raps," in other words, music overdubbed with Jim''s nostalgic reminiscences. In hindsight, this tribute doesn''t hold up to repeated plays. I''d rather hear the songs that are being talked over.

Inside the LP''s gatefold cover are six full size pages of text and photos printed on heavy stock that are bound to the cover''s spine. Record sleeves provide song personnel, lyrics and brief comments on each track.

This set then is both a thoughtful bio and a thorough exploration of music fans hadn''t heard when Croce was alive, including his own tunes, some covers, demos and post-college folk songs. (Note: Side 1 is monaural.) Recommended.

We all know how music producers, recording companies, and even the families of recently deceased musicians, sometimes try to capitalize on the tragic death of an artist. This is the exception.

Obviously a lot of thought, love and care went into this collection of songs recorded by Jim before his three signature albums. Many of them appeared in later releases, but this is the first one to give a glimpse of what I like to believe is the real Jim Croce, sans some of the commercial trappings present on the other albums.

Don''t get me wrong, I think they''re quite good, and I was one of the few pre-plane crash Croce fans that I knew of at the time. But here we''re presented with the essential, stripped down, gutsy Jim, the folk singer, the troubador, and the story teller.

His covers of classic folk tunes like ''''Greenback Dollar'''' and ''''This Land Is Your Land'''' add a new dimension to old standards. His early songs written with his wife, the former Ingrid Jacobsen, are sweet and poignant harbingers of his nascent talents, and you also get a taste of a few of his early ''''character'''' songs, for which he later gained such fame.

Perhaps the finest tune, and by far the most unheralded, is his adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling poem ''''Gunga Din.'''' It quite literally gave me chills the first time I heard it thirty years ago, and continues to affect me every time I play it.

The real treat though, is side four. It consists of nearly thirty minutes of stories and various raps from his concerts. If you like Jim''s story telling abilities in his songs, wait till you hear these! Many of them contain the thought processes and real life experiences that went into the creation of some of his greatest ''''character'''' songs.

Can you tell I like the album? Well, if you buy it, you won''t be disappointed. Enjoy!

I''ve had this album for ages, and it''s one of the last vinyl I have, though I haven''t been able to listen to it since the demise of my turntable. I''ve been waiting for it to show up on cd.
