Released seven years after Jim Croce's death, Live: The Final Tour is just that: a live album taken from Croce's final tour, during which a plane crash ended his life. As with most singer/songwriters of the era, Croce's acoustic act doesn't sound all that different live than in the studio, making the album rather unnecessary for the casual fan. Still, the simple addition of a live atmosphere tends to give his songs a warmer, more personified touch despite few changes in the production, making Live: The Final Tour a treat for Jim Croce diehards and a haunting eulogy to a deeply missed performer.
