- Product Information
Safe to say, Wolfgang Bernreuthers childhood was positively shaped by music, as he was already playing guitar and zither at the age of 10 years. As a teenager he succumbed to the blues and the magic of Jimi Hendrix and blues-legends like John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters.
„Blues is more than music. Blues is a lifestyle.” With this attitude towards life, Bernreuther is a stable part of the blues-scene. Hardly any other German blues musician shows this much creativity and variety in interpretations, songs, and lyrics. With countless albums and live performances, he has been making music for well over 40 years and also made his name known in the international high-end scene. For over two decades, Bernreuther has been working with Erlangen-based high-end label Clearaudio.
What better way to celebrate this 20 year long relationship between musician and label than with a special album. Still a fool” is the perfect symbiosis of musical talent and top-notch sound quality. Opener “Can’t Get Rid Of It”, a classic blue song, immediately sparks joy hearing the rest of the album, which has it all - original compositions and classics like "All Along The Watchtower", paying homage to idols like Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. On the song “Set Sail” Bernreuther gets personal about the loss of a loved one. Looking for a “highlight” on this LP turns out to be inane - every song is simply too good. Wolfang also has a great aptitude for selecting his musicians, like Greg Cohen (Tom Waits, Keith Richards), Manni von Bohr (Birth Control) or Christoph "Stofferl" Well (Biermösl Blosn). He proudly presents his son Johannes on the drums on “I Can´t Keep From Crying”.
"Still A Fool" is a treat for lovers of authentic music and deserves its place in every high-end Vinyl collection.
The album is available as an audiophile vinyl-edition in a high-quality cardboard gatefold cover with a 180h high-quality virgin LP in 33RPM and a 4-track maxi single in 180g high quality vinyl in 45RPM. The first 1,000 copies of the limited first edition include a double-sided printed poster, an OBI, an art print of a Klaus Voormann drawing and printed inner linings.
