@Penny Lane said
MMM.....He was responsible for the album cover art and at the time, was known as Patrick for the album. 

You were misunderstanding what @meanmistermustard was saying Penny Lane . He is totally aware of who did the painting, however there is no official version of how that artwork would have been shown as part of a cover for A Doll's House. The image he shows for a ADH cover is not from any official source, but was created by a fan to show how it might have looked.

The fan who created it in 2016, a user of the Steve Hoffman Music Forums, whose name mmm couldn't remember, goes by the username of andrewskyDE:

EDIT: The above is andrewskyDE's first version of the cover, while the version mmm used appears a few pages later in the conversation with the same user saying they have tweaked it, in case any were wondering why the version I show differs. Mine is take 1, mmm's is take 2.

Here is the Steve Hoffman post that shows andrewskyDE's second version of the album cover, the one that @meanmistermustard used:

Okay Ron Nasty, got that. MMM was referring to the fan who altered the background colour and typography, on the Beatles Ballads album (during his lunchbreak?) not the album artwork. Have to say it does look good.

I really like the cover for Sgt. Pepper ’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Their outfits are pretty cool, if you ask me.

I also like the one for Beatles For Sale (Ringo looks so adorable)hearta-hard-days-night-ringo-11

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

Whose Sgt Pepper outfit is the best?

Not "who looks the best in their outfit" but "whose outfit looks the best on its own."

I personally love Paul's best. (But of course we all know George is the best looking no matter what he wears a-hard-days-night-george-10)

John's. The colours are more vivid, so I prefer his.

 

To be honest my favourite artwork is probably Revolver - Klaus outdid himself on that one.

I agree 100%-- but nothing can beat the White Album artwork. Such creative artistry! It took true talent to design that album cover.

(Joking. Revolver is my favorite a-hard-days-night-george-10)

Maybe it's because i have a thing for the art style featured in the film but i really dig the cover for Yellow Submarine .

Image result for yellow submarine

A disappointing album with a great cover.

Great cover: yes. Disappointing album: it's disappointing in that it only has six songs, but those six are great a-hard-days-night-george-9.

Also, unless I am mistaken, Yellow Submarine was the first album to feature the sign of the horns on the cover.

My Yellow Submarine has this cover:

What's the difference between the two?

I don't know if I'm missing your point, but John is holding a French Horn on the Sgt Pepper cover...

I agree that that the six songs on the album are fantastic, don’t know why everyone says that it’s the worst. It contains the awesome score for the YS film and the Beatles songs featured.

I meant the little hand signal John is doing.

I imagine you'd think so... you seem to be our resident Yellow Submarine expert/fanatic. a-hard-days-night-george-9

What's the difference between the two?  

1. There are only 4 "new" Beatles songs on the album, of which only 3 are good (All Together Now isn't that good IMO) and the stereo mixes are terrible, like as if they mixed it with mono in mind.

2. A lot. YSS is remixed and replaces the orchestral songs with other Beatles songs from the film. Sadly, they rearranged the songs and included a few songs that were barely even featured in the film like Think For Yourself .

But that's ridiculous. Think For Yourself wasn't in the film at all, was it?

Also: does it have Love You To

A loop of ".. And you've got time to rectify..." accompanies the onscreen image of (I think) the original band being freed from the glass dome-thing; and the "alap"/intro of "Love You To " sets up the appearance of George, altho neither song appears in full.
