Welcome to Croce’s Park West
When Jim Croce and I fell madly in love, I was a 16 year old artist, a gymnast, a folk singer, a high school sophomore and thought business was a “four letter word”. It was the early Sixties and Jim was a college Sophomore at Villanova University. We met at a contest, and he asked me if I would sing with him.

Jim was determined to be independent and make music his profession. When we discovered we were going to have a child, he wrote “Time in a Bottle”, “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim”, “Operator” and “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown”.
