AllMusic Review by

For those who want to dig a little deeper into Croce's music than just his well-known songs, the double-CD set The 50th Anniversary Collection is a fine buy. The 49-track collection, released in 1992 to commemorate what would have been Croce's 50th birthday, includes all of his radio singles as well as many of the noteworthy album tracks that the single-disc Photographs and Memories overlooks. It's not quite a flawless compilation; both discs have a substantial amount of filler, but that doesn't stop the 50th Anniversary Collection from being a great retrospective on a career that was silenced far too soon.
