Still the Same… Great Rock Classics of Our Time is an album by Rod Stewart, released on 10 October 2006. After four years singing pop standards from the Great American Songbook with great success, this album continues the notion of singing old material, but now in his classic musical genre – rock. The album is produced by Clive Davis and John Shanks (the former also produced the American Songbook albums) and includes rock milestones from the last four decades, including "It's a Heartache", "Day After Day" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's classic "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?", which was picked as the first single from the album. The album debuted #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, making it his fifth Top 5 and second #1 debut in three years. Stewart said he was "extremely happy" with the accomplishment.
