This past week we lost one of the greatest album cover art designers of all time. Britain's Storm Thorgerson, who died last Thursday, was just 69 years old. He'd spent more than 40 years designing and orchestrating some of the most iconic album covers of all time. Even if you don't know the name Storm Thorgerson, you know his work. That prism on the cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon? That was his.
Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale perform on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. Friends for more than three decades, the two had been trying to record an album together for many years. Finally, in 2012, they managed to arrange three days off at the same time. The result is Buddy & Jim, a collection of duets.
