Towards the end of his 1977 tour, Bob Dylan called Rob Stoner (bassist for the Rolling Thunder Revue) and asked him to help assemble a band to rehearse for the next tour.

Dylan rented space at this address in Santa Monica, and named it for the general condition of the neighborhood at the time. He hired engineers Arthur Rosato and Joel Bernstein to transform it into a rehearsal area/studio.

Dylan's expanded pop-based band practiced in the space, and eventually rented a mobile truck with a 24-track to do the recordings for the 1978 album Street Legal. The cover of that album features the exterior of Rundown Studios.

Street Legal, Bob Dylan
