According to Jim Berkenstadt and Belmo in 'Black Market Beatles' the front cover for the LP back in 1985 was

before the album got scrapped and said to have been destroyed but actually got into the hands of bootleggers. EMI had prepared everything to go before it was scraped at the last minute after Apple raised objections.

I would therefore presume that the one you posted @stuartgardner is a bootleggers creation but it could have been a rejected alternative.

 

@Zig, @Ahhh Girl, care to do the honours.

Article on Sessions by John C Winn. Am trying to find more on the cover but everything just keeps regurgitating the same story of how it came to be bootlegged.

No pics but one paragraph reads

Sleeves for the LP and 45 were designed, sleeve notes written (in Aug 84 by Allan Kozinn, later replaced by Brian Southall's notes), label copy was prepared (on 14 Dec 84), catalogue numbers were assigned (Parlophone EJ 2402701 and Capitol ST-12373 for the LP, Parlophone R6088 for the single), release dates were finalized (28 Jan 85 for the single, 25 Feb 85 for the LP).

Is this some sort of glitch with your profile or something?  You're easily the most heavily moderated poster (perhaps because you've posted more than everyone else) and I just don't get it.  I mean, you articulate strong opinions at times (such as your love for 'Hold Me Tight' or Apple Corps.) but you've always been respectful (even when you do use profanities) while making your point as far as I can tell, what's this all about?  If you don't mind me asking...:-)

I have no idea why mmm' posts keep getting put under moderation. @Joe, is there anything you can do to help mmm (and secondarily Zig and me) out?

I once had this German bootleg of it, which has a completely different cover:

And it came with a paper insert with mostly incorrect information about each song.
