A couple of articles from wogblog on the 'Help !' cover which examines the original colours, Beatles positioning etc which come to some interesting conclusions. Never thought that the Beatles themselves would have been flipped even tho we knew that the US and UK covers have them in different positions.

Article 1

Article 2

Also links to an article on the Beatles Internet Album which has additional discussion.

The following people thank meanmistermustard for this post:

Do we need to figure out the secret code? Maybe it somehow stands for "Paul will be dead".

I think it's funny how they said "Oh, it doesn't look good when they actually spell HELP... Meh, whatever, let's just spell nonsense.  None of the teenage girls will know, anyway."

I read somewhere before on a spoof article called, "everyone but Paul is dead".  "NUJV" was a clue... "New Unknown John Vocal".

The U.S. album cover mimics the MOVIE POSTER...which, since the Capitol version is a "soundtrack", makes perfectly logical sense.

I will play the game Existence to the End ;)
