Between 1965 and 1966 Bob Dylan recorded three of his finest albums that many believe altered the course of modern music: Bringing It All back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde.
The Bootleg Series Volume 12 takes you inside the studio during the recording of those three albums. Clearly, Dylan had moved on from topical protest acoustic songs to full-throated rock, blues and pop.
With a staggering wealth of unreleased songs, outtakes, rehearsals and alternate versions - The Cutting Edge provides a unique insight into the legendary icon's creative process. Limited to 5,000, this being 3,920.
