Two album covers spanning 22 years, designed by Storm Thorgerson

1988's The Delicate Sound Of Thunder by Pink Floyd:



and 2010's Bingo! by Steve Miller Band:





The two albums are available at Amazon.com. 

Here's Steve Miller releasing his first studio album in 17 years (since the great, digitally mastered Wide River) and having Storm Thorgerson -the great photographer and designer who, with Hipgnosis, has designed LP covers for Alan Parsons, Wings and Emerson, Lake & Palmer- work on the CD cover. The reminiscing was immediate: A man, close to the camera, has round objects attached to his body and faces another man at the distance; an enemy or somebody who's different to him.  It is a duel or Repeating himself? Completely. Was this deliberate? Good question. 

Bingo! is Steve's first album in 17 years but is a collection of covers. Being Wide River his last album of original material, I just realized Steve has come up with only one album of original songs in 24 years. Just a thought.

Bingo! is fun to listen, but the standard version of the CD -there is a "Special Edition" with bonus tracks and extended liner notes- runs a little more than 30 minutes. At $12.99, it's more than a rip off. Steve could have given us way more.
