Released after his early demise, The Faces I've Been was almost entirely recorded before Jim Crocemade it big. But that's not to say that the songs here are sub-standard. Jim Croce displays his many talents in this set, be they covers of "This Land Is Your Land" and "Old Man River," or his own tunes such as "Which Way Are You Goin'" and "Stone Walls." A fine overview of a singer/-songwriter coming to grips with his talent. Good.
