There's one pic up to tease us, but apparently Linda was on-hand to document the 'Abbey Road' cover shoot, and tomorrow some of these photos will debut on Paul's website.  It's so strange and wonderful to see one of the most iconic images in recording history from a different viewpoint.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Thanks for alerting us to this, satan! Interesting indeed.

There was film footage taken of that photo shoot too. Was that ever shown anywhere, aside from the few seconds in the brief Abbey Road CD documentary?

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Was there some in the Anthology or was it just the final photo session footage (i need to watch that again some time)? They need to get a move on with this image directly pumped into your brain thing. Forget 4G and electric cars, give us mind controled tv.

Could've been in "Anthology", but I've never seen that…I suck :(

There's just something about the idea of documenting the act of DOCUMENTATION itself that really intrigues me – it's like documentation unto infinity. And naturally, alternate views of a famous photo shoot (as opposed to alternate shots from the shoot itself) are a perfect example. (Let alone motion picture footage of a famous static event.)

Wow these photos are awesome. Linda was a real great photographer. She should have done some beatles cover photos. I think she did some for wings and I've always loved wings' album covers

They are really great. Is it me or does it look like George is trying to avoid looking at the camera/being in the picture??

And I don´t think the other Beatles (John especially, maybe) would of been all that happy about Linda doing a cover as there was that unspoken rule that the wives/girlfriends would not get involved with the band, although that sort of went out of the window when Yoko arrived on the scene.

Cant see how John could complain about Linda doing a Beatle album when Yoko was everywhere. Yoko is on the cover sleeve of  TBOJAY (not sure it was a reissue with a new 70's cover but anyway).

 

On a side note all the beatle wives excluding Cynthia are on a beatles song. TCSOBB has Yoko & Maureen and Mo is on also on Get Back (album mix), Linda is part of Let It Be (single mix). Pattie and Yoko contribute backing vocals on Birthday. Any others?

I just don't think that they would've being that willing for her to play such a key part in the making of the album (which the cover is, imo).
Also, I have read a few different times that John wasn't that keen on Linda, I know he didn't really pay much attention to anything or anyone once he was with Yoko but it seems that he pratically ignored her and wouldn't acknoweledge her existence. That's just what I have read though, I don't know how true it is.

If that is true then a bit hypocritical of John to complain of Yokos treatment at the hands of Paul, George and Ringo.

Yes, but if it is true then he probably didn´t realise how he was being with her. I mean, did he know how he was being to Paul and everyone else at that time because he wasn´t been particulary nice to them either, was he? Maybe he was so absorbed with Yoko, so in love, that he didn´t realise how cold he was being with everyone else.

I don´t know, maybe I´m just trying to make excuses for him.

MeamMrM, Francie Schwartz was apparently helping out with the "shooby doo wops" in "Revolution 1" – meaning that all four of the Beatles' then-current wives/girlfriends appeared on the White Album.

I actually I remember hearing that John was very keen on Linda and there was a bit of the macho rivalry between Paul and John over Linda (at the very beginning when she first came on the scene and was not attached to anyone). It's one more 'John' reference in Too Many People – 'she's waiting for me, yeah' – is about how Linda picked Paul over John.

Don't be fooled – John's love for Yoko (or Cynthia) never got in the way of him being willing to screw almost anything. Remember the Greenwich Village story – John has a girl while Yoko is in the other room – and everyone could hear them. That was John for his whole life. Listen to the lyrics of Losing You and Moving On – songs about John's infidelity. George was the same.
