Features Song Lyrics for James Taylor's Flag album.
Flag is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter James Taylor, released in May 1979, it included songs from Taylor's music score to Studs Terkel and Stephen Schwartz's Broadway musical, Working ("Millworker", "Brother Trucker"). The album was not particularly well received, but it did provide a hit in Taylor's cover version of the Gerry Goffin–Carole King composition "Up on the Roof". The signal flag that makes up the cover of the album is "O (Oscar)", standing for "man overboard".
James Taylor followed his double-platinum Columbia Records label debut, JT, with this hodgepodge of a record. There are pointless covers of the Beatles' "Day Tripper" and the Drifters' "Up on the Roof," a remake of Taylor's own "Rainy Day Man," songs written for the failed Broadway musical Working, and a few inconsequential new Taylor compositions.
Released May 1, 1979. 1. Company Man Lyrics. The flag on the album’s cover is a signal flag for the letter O (Oscar). Signal flags represent individual letters of the alphabet, for ships to signal to one another. The O flag also stands for Man Overboard. The themes of the album include depression, the struggle of finding meaningful work, addiction, and imprisonment.
