Collectors Limited Edition of 2000 copies of Still as a three 180g LP set, the third disc comprising the five songs from the Variations E.P featured in the deluxe CD package.

Each disc comes in its own outer sleeve and there is a newly designed twelve page album sized lyric booklet. The whole package fits into its own hardback slipcase making an impressive package, worthy of its contents.

Produced by Jeff Tweedy, Still was originally released in June 2015 and MOJO Magazine named RT's "Still" as the 21st best album of 2015. "Richard's been one of my favorite guitar players for a very long time,” stated Tweedy. “When I think about it, he's also one of my favorite songwriters and favorite singers. He's the Ultimate Triple Threat. Getting to work closely with him on this record was a truly rewarding experience, not to mention a great thrill. And he keeps alive my streak of working exclusively with artists who make me look good as a producer." Still was recorded in a two-story rehearsal loft in Chicago over the course of just nine days with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy at the helm, backed by several longtime players from both Thompson’s and Tweedy’s bands.

Thompson enlisted Tweedy’s production skills in an effort to shake up his own creative approach to making records. “It turned out be really good idea,” says Thompson. “Jeff is musically very sympathetic. Although some of his contributions are probably rather subtle to the listener’s ear, they were really interesting and his suggestions were always very pertinent.”

Taken as a whole, Still is a powerful dispatch from an acknowledged master who remains unafraid to put himself into demanding new environments – its title reflecting that resilience and seemingly endless resourcefulness. “Or,” Thompson adds slyly, “it could be read as ‘Is he still performing? I thought he died years ago.”
