Bob Dylan’s resurgence in the late ’80s is examined in the new issue of Uncut, dated August 2014, and out now.

Musicians, producers and engineers give eyewitness accounts of Dylan’s methods in and out of the studio in the concluding half of our fascinating feature by Allan Jones.

“We started setting up in the garage,” says Jeff Lynne’s engineer Bill Bottrell of one recording session. “There was all this gear Dylan had bought from Dave Stewart sitting there, not really working. Jeff and I had to quickly plug it all together and make it work as much as possible.

“It was hilarious. It was a real garage. You know, like Sheetrock, plasterboard walls, a metal garage door, the kind that rolls up. There may even have been lawnmowers in there.”

The new Uncut, dated August 2014, is out now.
