The legendary blues/rock guitarist Eric Clapton releases his 23rd album "I Still Do" on 45rpm 2LP. Once again, Clapton works with producer Glyn Johns, who has previously manned the boards for Clapton's 1977 Slowhand album. The 12-song record, which follows the 2014 chart-topping Eric Clapton & Friends: The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale, includes some originals written by Clapton. The album is mastered for 45rpm for maximum fidelity. The album is mixed by Glyn Johns, mastered by Bob Ludwig, and cut for vinyl by Bernie Grundman from analog tape.

 

"Everyone’s on fire and it doesn’t take more than a few bars before you realize you’re hearing a rich, organic, transparent artifact-free sound that’s rarely heard on modern recordings (probably because this all analogue recording and mix is not a “modern” recording!) ...I’ve played this one repeatedly since it arrived yesterday and as a demonstration of indelibly pure, gimmick-free music making from all involved and record production excellence, it goes right to the top of any list. The double 45rpm 180g MPO pressing (at least my sealed copy) was quiet, flat and flawless. Don’t miss this one!" - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet

 

Forty years after they collaborated on Slowhand, Eric Clapton and producer Glyn Johns (who has also produced albums for the Eagles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and the Who) reunite on the guitarist’s 23rd studio album. Graced with a smart mixture of originals and covers—including Dylan’s “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine"—I Still Do resonates with signature tones, heartfelt vocals, and deep-seated details on this 45RPM analog pressing. Recorded on a 16-track machine on two-inch analog tape, then mixed down to 1/4-inch tape, I Still Do is an instant audiophile favorite. Everything is captured in stellar analog while the two of the industry’s leading engineers - Bob Ludwig and Bernie Grundman - handled the mastering and cutting, respectively. That Warner Bros.' 45RPM 2LP set is priced affordably puts this astonishing release over the top, and then some.

 

"This was a long and overdue opportunity to work with Glyn Johns again, and also, incidentally, the fortieth anniversary of Slowhand," says Eric Clapton. The album's artwork – a carefully crafted illustration of Clapton – is the work of esteemed artist Sir Peter Blake, whose previous art includes the co-design of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album sleeve as well as the Band Aid single "Do They Know It's Christmas?," Paul Weller's Stanley Road, and The Who's Face Dances. I Still Do features Blake's signature at the bottom right corner of the cover.

 

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Glyn on quite a few projects. He has always been one of my idols and he has always been a musician first and then an engineer. Glyn has never been one to foolishly chase after the ‘loudness wars’ as most engineers and A&R people do. If he mixes a song to tape and it sounds exactly as he wishes, why squash the musical transients with needless level? When I hear that Glyn is booked for a session, I know I'm going to hear an artist doing superb performances and engineering that sounds like real people in real environments. Eric's record is just stunning.” - Bob Ludwig, Gateway Mastering Studios

 

“I feel fortunate that I was able to work with Glyn Johns on the vinyl disc cutting for Eric Clapton’s album. The mixing that Glyn did was so good that the masters were cut direct from our custom tape electronics to the cutting system with only a few minor adjustments. It doesn’t get any cleaner than that - a really terrific, natural, and realistic sound.” - Bernie Grundman, Bernie Grundman Mastering
