Walking Man

Walking Man is the fifth studio album in singer-songwriter James Taylor's discography. Released on June 1, 1974, it was not as successful as his previous efforts, only reaching #13 on the Billboard Album Chart. It is also the only studio album he released that never received a certification as a gold record from the RIAA. The song "Walking Man," released as the album's first single, failed to crack the Billboard chart at all, but nevertheless stands today as an often reprised fan favorite.
