Rejected in the book so an official source.

Yep, Revolver is, by far, the best cover they had!

The following people thank Emmett for this post:

If I were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one album with me, it would be Revolver. 

I just hope that I would have some means of playing it.  Ha ha!

@Emmett Agreed. Klaus Voormann did a fantastic job with the album cover. It really encapsulates the psychedelic nature of the album, as well as the overall chaotic nature of the album in general.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff

I love the Beatles For Sale cover. But, in Australia, we got this instead.... horrible, horrible, horrible.

Ah yes, our beautiful cover.

Aren't we lucky to live in such a great country that butchers great album covers... I get unnecessarily worked up about this particular example. How totally drab... who'd buy it??

On its own terms, (like, forgetting the existence of the unforgettably autumnal original), I think that would make a fantastic magazine ad for the album.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

I don’t recognise that cover, it doesn’t exist to me. Australia, hang your heads in shame! (I say this as an Australian)
