I use raid 5 just for this problem.  Have dropped 2 of the 3 raid

Yeah, this would work with 3 discs, but doesn't answer the general
question about recovering data from a single LVM drive. In my 2 drive
system it wouldn't work. Any other ideas? I would assume that if one
drive failed it should be trivial to be able to access the information
on the remaining drive. If not, then I would be a lot safer going back
to a non-LVM system using the two drives as distinct partitions.

Take a look at a 2 disk raid 1 array as a pv. I have seen that array degrade to 1 drive and the LV was ok.
