Following the critical and commercial drubbing that Self Portrait received, Dylan returned to form with New Morning. with its sepia-coloured cover photo of a somewhat rabbinical-looking Dylan, this is a gentle, eclectic album in which the artist celebrates married life and living in the country. He sings about domestic bliss on The Man in Me and of the simple joy of being called 'pa' by his kids on Sign in the Window. This was perhaps the last time that Dylan would release a collection of songs so free of his trademark bile. If Not For You, for example, is gently, poetically romantic. Much of the music bears some of the pastoral flavour of Nashville Skyline.
