    I voted the way Bobby Morrow would if he checked in here.

    "If Dogs Run Free" - lovely free-form improvisation, different for Bob.

    I didn't select "If Not for You" because it's a bit lightweight, although it's a great song.
    There are other good songs on this album, which tends to be forgotten.

    "The Man in Me".

    "Day of the Locusts" comes a close second.

    'Sign On The Window' then 'New Morning' sounds about right. Yes!

    I went with INFY because I honestly think it's the best song on the album.

    It's also very commercial and proves that Dylan could write incredibly commercial material when he chose to. It's a song that could be covered by just about anyone.

    I love this album. My favourite of the Dylan albums that aren't the established classics. Such a joyous record. I really like his voice on it.

    I went with Sign On The Window. It's just beautiful.

    New Morning was one of the first two Dylan albums I ever bought. Still one of my favorite albums. I voted for "Day of the Locusts," but I love "Man in Me" too. It took me awhile to warm up to "If Dogs Run Free" though.

    I went with Day of the Locusts, but Sign on the Window, the title track, The Man in Me and If Not for You are also top notch compositions. New Morning, the album, sort of represents Dylan's domestic period with his wife and growing family; there's a calmness and special charm to the record as a result of that and it makes for a curious and unique listen.

    "Sign on the Window" is one of the three standout songs for me (not to mention the best song of the bunch), but it's also the only one I prefer as-is. George H. cut the definitive version of "If Not For You," and I prefer the alternate version of "I Went to See the Gypsy" with the electric piano.

    This is a hard one, but I went with Sign on the Window. Tip o the hat to Time Passes Slowly and The Man in Me.

  21. "Time Passes Slowly" got my vote, but... soooooooooo many great songs on this great album...
    ... the other closest to stealing my vote was "If Not For You" & with the rest of the honorable mention roll call- "If Not For You", "Day Of The Locust", "Went To See The Gypsy", "Winterlude", "New Morning", "Sign On The Window" & "The Man In Me"

    "Sign on the Window" has one of Bob's most singularly affecting vocal performances. Incredible song.

    I'll say this as well: Despite being an unapologetically lenient Dylan fan, I can't help but find about half of New Morning essentially unlistenable.

    Ah one of my favorite Dylan albums, SUPER underrated. I went with If Not For You just because it brings back great memories and always soothes me. I also really like One More Weekend because it sounds really similar to Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat.

    It was "Sign on the Window" for me.

    New Morning -- my favorite Dylan album!
