Music on Mondays (7-21-14)—Rapid Roy has the blues because his stock car is at the car wash

The Music Chronicles of Russel Ray

There are many high-priced restaurants in San Diego, all of them out of my price range. I have, however, eaten at all of them….

….except one.

I have never eaten at Croce’s Restaurant & Jazz Bar, which is downtown in the Gaslamp Quarter, the historic heart of San Diego.

Croce’s is named after singer-songwriter Jim Croce and was founded by his widow, Ingrid, in 1985. She sold the restaurant in 2013.

Since the awesome Julian thinks Jim Croce’s songs are fine fine fine, I thought we would share his five best songs, picked by Julian.

    I went to art school at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. Jim Croce used to date a girl from my school and was frequently sited in the cafeteria there! I have always loved his “Operator” song. Especially the way he changed the way I accent the syllables to be op-er-A-tor! (in my mind) Saw a great movie today you might like about music and the industry. “Begin Again.” with Kiera Knightly and Mark Ruffalo. Not corny! Let me know what you think!
