"The High Above and the Down Below" is the seventh studio album by contemporary folk singer-songwriter Cliff Eberhardt. It was released on Red House Records on April 10, 2007. It is Eberhardt's first album in five years and follows a lengthly recovery from serious injuries Eberhardt suffered in a 2002 auto accident.

Eberhardt says, "This is the recording that I always wanted to make."Cliff Eberhardt, liner notes for "The High Above and the Down Below" (RHR CD 199), Red House Records, Inc., 2007] The musicians featured include Eberhardt (vocals & guitars), Rich Dworsky (piano, B3, Rhodes), Gordy Johnson (bassses), and J.T.
