This video embedded in the article discusses the impact of The Beatle's evolution in terms of its album covers....Naturally it focuses largely on Sgt Pepper .

I found it interesting.

Thanks @Bongo, I've never seen that first photo before. I always thought that the supposed original idea of including Hitler was a hoax, but there he is plain as day.blue-meanie

Thanks for sharing this @Ahhh Girl, that is a great thread. It not only included a knowledgeable discussion about the Hitler model (for all these years I seriously thought that was an urban legend), but also contained lots of the comedic riffing that the members of this forum excel at. Some of the discussions are so off-beat that they force involuntary chortles and giggles to come forth. Even though John said "the dream is over", I really think he would get a kick out of the sophisticatedly witty forum exchanges.a-hard-days-night-john-6

Arrrrgh, I was just coming here to post it... paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Anyway, I thought it absolutely brilliant -- it's given me a new appreciation for the album cover. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Here's something Jann Haworth said about the making of the Sgt. Pepper cover. http://www.ksl.com/?sid=428239.....38;nid=148

Haworth's most famous collaboration was in the 1960s. She and then-husband Peter Blake — later Sir Peter Blake — were leading figures in London's pop-art scene. They hooked up with four of the most famous guys in the world to create an album cover showing the Beatles with a crowd of famous heads behind them.

"The crowd would be made of the Beatles' heroes," Haworth recalled. "In actual fact, they chose about a third of the heads that were on the final cover. And then Peter and I had to make a crowd, so we chose the rest."

They had their differences with the Fab Four. John Lennon , for example, wanted to include Adolf Hitler on the cover.

"I have no idea what his thinking was," Haworth said, adding that she thinks Lennon "liked being provocative."

Haworth and Blake prevailed, and Hitler was not included. But Haworth was left with a less-than-lofty view of Lennon.

"I think he has clay feet," she said. "I think politically and artistically there's some question marks there."

Despite their differences, the collaboration produced one of the best-known album covers in history. A quarter-century later, in 1991, Rolling Stone magazine named "Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band" the greatest album cover of all time.
