I've been digging through the album covers on this site- still doing so- in hopes I might identify a Beatles' album cover I saw over 35 years ago. The LP cover was primarily an artistic rendition of an english gentleman's face: Derby, glasses or monocle, and classic curled mustache. I've never seen it again since that original sighting. Most likely an import. I saw it at a flea market in the States. Any thoughts?

There's more here than meets the eye.

No bowler hat, but the guy has a moustache:

That sounds like the first edition of Vee-Jay's Jolly What! The Beatles & Frank Ifield on Stage.

The cover was later replaced by this:

Released on 26 February 1964, while Vee-Jay was attempting to milk all they could out of their time-limited rights to Beatles material, it contained four Beatles studio recordings and eight live Frank Ifield recordings.

Of the covers, the second is among the rarest of all Beatles albums, as Vee-Jay only switched to it shortly before their rights ran out in October 1964, and there's only believed to be around 100 copies of it.
