Just quickly looking through this again and I realized no one is really a fan of Magical Mystery Tour or Beatles For Sale. Does no one like George's turnip hair?

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I love George's turnip hair!  also the orangey background.

What's turnip hair? Sounds funny...a-hard-days-night-george-8

 

My favorite covers are Revolver and Abbey Road. Such great covers!! Love Klaus Voormann's work. Anyone ever checked out his website? He has some great Hamburg era drawings.

Paul described in the Anthology George's hair in Beatles for Sale cover as "George's turnip" I think.

Ohhhhh I can't decide! Well, if your saying album only then a hard days night, or help. I carved my pumpkin at Halloween this year like the cover of help! But I you taking about albums OR singles, the hands down the Twist And Shout ep. Idk why, but I just love the pictures of them jumping!

I liked The Beatles before it was cool. (as in, I like all their music before 1965. I mean, I still like their later stuff but am very picky about what songs I like, while their older stuff I love it all. I am just not a fan of drugged out Beatles. Drugs scare me.)

BFS is my second favourite album cover. Its such a contrast to smiley happy cheery media presented beatles and shows that they were willing to be honest in how they were presenting themselves, even if it wasnt particularly noticed back in 1964. They could easily have done fake smiles and a real cheesy cover. The cover and album title brilliantly sums up how they felt at that time. And they still look great.

I was actually given a BFS poster that is absolutely massive, about 3 times the size of a standard poster, years ago from my brother. Its in a cupboard somewhere.

My favorite album cover is definitely Rubber Soul. I like the style, which I would describe nowadays as kind of nostalgic.

I find Rubber Soul a really interesting album because it's slightly elongated, but it was by a complete accident. I don't think I can pick a favourite album cover, each one is great in their own way.

I like the White Album's cover. It's so perfect and it contradicts all of their other album covers.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

My favourite is Revolver. I loved it even before I had listened to any of the Beatles albums, although it always looked a bit "weird", you know... like those scary dolls with realistic eyes O___O

I think mine might be With The Beatles. Not the obvious choice, I know, and not one of their 'iconic' covers either but I dunno, I like the simplicity of it, the sombre-ness, the fact that George looks so young still....

I don't even have to think about it.  Sgt. Pepper all the way.  heart

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Do you think so? When I speak to a lot of people (fans and not), they always mention Sgt. Pepper's (obviously), Abbey Road and the White Album, too.

I think sometimes it's trendier to focus on the later albums. But of the early ones, I think WTB is the most recognizable/parodied (thinking of Seinfeld, for instance).
