New Paul Jones solo album features Eric Clapton

From the Your Way To Music site:

Carla has produced a new album by British Invasion legend Paul Jones – the singer of the Manfred Mann hits Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Sha La La, Pretty Flamingo, The One In The Middle, My Little Red Book, If You Gotta Go – Go Now, Oh No Not My Baby, Come Tomorrow, 5-4-3-2-1…

Paul is also the lead singer of The Blues Band and the co-lead singer ofThe Manfreds and has had two BBC radio programs for decades.

The album was mostly recorded in Los Angeles with Jake Andrews (guitar), Tony Marsico (bass guitar), Alvino Bennett (drums) and Mike Thompson (piano, organ) but a few overdubs were recorded at Olympic Studios in London and a photo from that session is above: Paul, Eric Clapton, Carla and Mikael Rickfors. Eric plays on 2 songs and Sweden’s Mikael Rickfors sings harmony on a few tracks and also co-wrote 1 song with Paul.

Release will be early 2009 in both Europe and North America – details to follow.
