Walking Man

Walking Man is the fifth studio album by singer-songwriter James Taylor. Released in June 1974, it was not as successful as his previous efforts, reaching only No. 13 on the Billboard Album Chart and selling 300,000 copies in the United States. Until 2008's Covers, it was Taylor's only studio album not to receive a gold or platinum certification from the RIAA.

The title track, released as the album's first single, failed to place on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, but nevertheless, stands today as an often reprised fan favorite. "Walking Man" did, however, reach #26 on the Easy Listening chart in October 1974.[1]

"Hello Old Friend" was used in the intro for ABC's Game 3 coverage of the 1989 World Series, just before the pre-game broadcast was interrupted by a 6.9 magnitude earthquake.
