British songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Richard Thompson began his recording career in 1967 with the revered folk-rock band Fairport Convention. He has continued to record and tour throughout the world. Still is officially his sixteenth studio record under his own name (including many great albums credited to Richard and Linda Thompson). Thompson wanted to shake up his approach to making records this time out, so for the role of producer he sought out Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. Tweedy was happy to oblige, and the album was recorded in Chicago at Wilco's The Loft studio.
