Deidre McCalla is playing for keeps

from public radio live show in West Florida, a minute past

edit to add, interestingly and somewhat new to me, that the artist’s homepage features a photo of her, if you click on the photo it says “image is protected property of Irene Young, copyright 2013” and then offers you the chance to click an “ok” button. it is true that I found my way to Deidre after noticing an article about Irene in a Bay Area publication. Irene Young has shot roughly 600 album covers, has 63 examples on her site, and has a retrospective of her work inside Freight and Salvage. Ms. Young is known for her work with Women’s Music and Olivia Records, but also shot, for instance, Will Ackerman of Windham Hill records.

edit to add: I do like a portrait Irene Young shot of Deidre McCalla circa 1976; check back to see if, by grace, that magically appears here:
