Revolver . Voorman's art style is fascinating.
Although I do enjoy the Butcher cover.

Question having to do with album covers:
I was reading this book casually today in my highschool library, it was some sort of picture book about the Beatles. Anyways, there were bits and pieces about all the albums and mentioned Let it Be… Naked, and said that George’s picture was the only one altered from the original Let it Be cover because he had died in 2001- he looks more downcast now.
If that’s the case- why didn’t they do the same for John? One could even call his death more tragic, being murdered and all.
I don’t know if the book was credible at all- they kept referring Rubber Soul as Rubber Ball. Yeah.
Mhh interesting.. I hadn’t noticed that before… but to be honest.. why would you change that pic? I’m sure there must have been another reason. Maybe George’s didn’t look that good in “negative” effect, the background is too white.
Mhhh *opening her image editing software*
Edit : This is the original Let it Be photo with inverse colors (or negative photograph effect) on it. Now you understand why they changed George’s photo…

I laughed till I cried when I saw George.

My personal favourite is Revolver , because every time I look at the cover I find something new.
I also love the fact that Sgt Peppers is so colourful and almost too much for your eyes to take in, and is followed by the simplicity of The White Album . That is genius!
I think it's great you're going through a phase,
and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

Hey, I just looked at my old Revolver cover mounted on my wall (on Capitol, an original bought by an older cousin in '66) and noticed for the first time that the cover's different! It's got the Capitol records logo in place of the pound sign. Which makes sense, obviously, but I'd never realized until now that the pound sign was part of the Parlaphone logo. (Too small to read on the CD.)
LOL at Alissa's book! “Rubber Ball” !
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 PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

I always get these two mixed, but the black and white drawing cover is my favorite and the stretched photo is my second favorite. I can never remember which cover goes with which title. Let It Be is the last of the top 3. I never got the greatness of the Sgt. Pepper cover, it kind of just looks like a big jumbled mess to me.

Definitely Revolver for me, I just love the artwork. It's psychedelic, but in a more subtle (and I would argue more beautiful) way than Sgt. Pepper .
Plus, I love how their hair looks like spaghtetti.

To me it's Abbey Road – it has everythng – iconic photo – now album name – no group name – no words at all – no need – who but The Beatles could do that?

Black and white: Revolver .
Stretched: Rubber Soul .
If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

The Beatles had a lot of very memorable album covers — REVOLVER, Sgt Pepper , Rubber Soul and of course Abbey Road to name a few — but the one that always stands out for me is the first one I ever saw (this is the Canadian Capitol release of Parlophone's WITH THE BEATLES — with the same track lineup)
I've got nothing to say, but it's okay..

It's between Abbey Road and Let It Be for me. George's smile on LIB sorta makes me just love the cover. It's a great smile
But I think Abbey takes the cake just because there's just this feeling I get when I look at the cover. Utter happiness
Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I think Abbey Road is the best. But I also love the simplicity of the White Album …
Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble.

Abbey Road and A Hard Day's Night.
But if I were my dad, it would be Help .
Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.

I like the album The Beatles' Ballads from 1980 since it has that alternate White Album picture on it when it was still called Doll's House.

Oh yeah, and here's some (album or whatever) that I also like:
Strawberry Fields Forever EP – 1967
Nowhere Man EP – 1966
Yesterday …and Today – 1966
