Produktbeschreibungen
Das 1974er Album Walking Man sollte das am schlechtesten verkaufte James Taylor Album werden und es wirkte fast so, als hätte der Songwriter nach großen vorherigen Alben wie Sweet Baby James und Mud Slide Slim den goldenen Touch verloren. Runde 37 Jahre später wird klar, dass dieses Album eine übersehene Perle mit ruhigen und nachdenklichen Songs ist, das einfach nur nicht in das Superstar Bild, das man sich von James Taylor damals machte, passen wollte. Selbst die Gesangsstimmen von Linda und Paul McCartney im Hintergrundchor halfen nicht.
Der kommerzielle Misserfolg und die Ermangelung von Charthits dieses Albums haben jedoch auch einen sehr großen Vorteil. Das analoge Band ist laut Mastering-Ingenieur Steve Hoffman in fast jungfräulichem Zustand aus den Archiven ins Studio gelangt und klingt wunderbar warm und räumlich. Die von James Taylor überwiegend selbst geschriebenen Songs erscheinen wunderbar räumlich und mit großer Gelassenheit. Songs zum Genießen und darin versinken.

Das Audio Fidelity Re-Issue erscheint als 24-Karat-Gold CD mit beiliegenden Songtexten im Booklet als Limited Edition.

Walking Man, James Taylor's fifth album, released in 1974  finds him at a transitional period.
This album is the first that has the comtemporary JT feel to it, his sound and songwriting had matured. He still delivers the classic sound developed back in the Sweet Baby James era but the "one man and his guitar" format has given way to heavier orchestration and use of a horn secion that gives the general sound more of a bite. The production is precise and manicured and always features Taylor's unique guitar style and at the center of each song is Taylor's friendly, vulnerable voice.
James alternates between ballads with strings, ballads with horns and ballads with himself, as well as jazz and folk.  There is a strong jazzy feeling on the whole album and sometimes, the jazz takes risky, surprising and beautiful turns. The title song "Walking Man," released as the album's first single stands today as an often reprised fan favourite. Also included is the tender lullaby "Daddy's Baby," written in honor of Taylor's newly born daughter. Taylor delivers Chuck Berry's 1964 hit, "The Promised Land," with understated fidelity and joining James on his most unabashed rock effort to date, "Rock and Roll Is Music Now" is Carly Simon and Paul and Linda McCartney. Taylor has an understated way with a lyric but always hits his mark, which is the listener's heart.

Review
by William Ruhlmann

One Man Dog drastically lowered expectations for a new James Taylor album, and those expectations were almost met by Walking Man, a more considered effort than its predecessor that managed to be just as trivial but even less interesting. As a result, it became the worst-selling album of Taylor's career. Somehow, a songwriter who had seemed in 1970 to have as precise an idea of the national mood as Bob Dylan had had in 1965 now seemed to be a man without a country. Instead, Walking Man, which began with Taylor asking, "Who is this walking man?" and ended with him commenting, "It's really not so bad to be fading away," sounded like the statement of a songwriter who either had nothing to say or didn't know how to say it.

Mastered by the legendary Steve Hoffman
