1. IF NOT FOR YOU
1. NEW MORNING
Shortly after the controversial album Self Portrait Dylan released New Morning which expands on the laid-back-country-rock of John Wesley Harding by adding a bit more Rock & Roll.
Besides the hits “If Not For You” and “One More Weekend”, Dylan explores some peculiar paths during the tracks of this album. “If Not For You” is a widely covered hit by the likes of a.o. Byan Ferry, George Harrison & Olivia Newton John (who scored a #1 hit with her cover). He’s experimenting with Jazz-sounds on “Sign On The Window” and “Winterlude”, Rockabilly in “Went To See The Gypsy” and even spoken word in “If Dogs Run Free”.
In the US New Morning reached #7 going gold and in the UK it even bumped Led Zeppelin III from the number one position.
