As some of you may know, there are hidden faces of the Beatles on the cover of the Rolling Stones album, Their Satanic Majesties Request. I was going through their different album artworks when I found an inside cover for Some Girls.

Does anybody know what the original photo is, and are there any more from this session/date?

Is that Ronnie Wood also in the frame? George looks like 1964-65 era, at most 1966...

It looks like the person his face is plastered over is another Beatle, maybe Paul.

BTW I've just found this one, which has Pattie Boyd (?) in.

I would suggest the Help film première, waiting in line for the introduction to Princess Margaret.

In case somebody isn't familiar with this, this is what he's talking about.

Yeah, it's my fave Stones cover, Satanic Majesties, because it's just that cool. And I don't know why I never noticed the photo(s) in "Some Girls" before. Then again, I've never owned the vinyl of that one and the CD I've had of it came to me without any inserts. LOL

It's also worth pointing out that the original Some Girls artwork was quickly withdrawn after multiple threats of legal action from many of the female celebrities featured (including Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcett, Liza Minnelli [on behalf of her mother, Judy Garland], Raquel Welch and Marilyn Monroe's estate.

They issued a second version of the sleeve, putting all the celebrity pictures under punkish day-glo colours with the words "Pardon our appearance - cover under re-construction". Except one (I could only find a picture of the side of the sleeve we're talking about here from the Italian release):
