    I know Phil did design album covers, and I recently saw Aja attributed to him. However, I cannot find any evidence that this is actually true.

    Great, thanks. I had a feeling it wasn't true. I wonder how that rumor got started, as I've seen several websites repeat it without any sources or evidence.

    Do we know if there's a reliable list of his album cover designs?

  6. He designed some for POCO including LEGEND. I worked for ABC when that came out and was given a poster sized lithograph of the Horse signed by the entire band. Unfortunately I have no idea what happened to it and I was always good about keep things from that time

    It's amazing how far that Hartman-Aja story has spread. Here's a video that mentions it:

    Which is pretty similar in tone to the cover of Aja. You can see how people would make that mistake.

    He did have a minimalist style, so that cover does kinda like one of his. I'd never heard that rumor, but I would not have been surprised at all if it had turned out to be fact.

    Phil Hartman was a good man. It was so sad when he passed!

    Huge loss. And a very tragic manner as well.
