I think  the dutch version of Help! is so weird.

Just look at it. Why do you think someone added a shell logo in the background?

Maybe Shell paid somebody for them to put it on there, because The Beatles were pretty big, and Shell knew it, so that was their way of advertising themselves, probably.

It was a promotional copy that was given to Shell employees in the Netherlands.

Paulrus thanks. I knew it couldn't be real, but I had no other answer.

It wasn't just a promo - that was the regular edition. I'll dig out some more info. http://www.beatlesbible.com/di.....therlands/

It was actually a 1979 reissue. The 1965 version was the conventional UK one. The Shell cover was a publicity sleeve for the Dutch company Shell, but wasn't a promo - it was also released in '79 in Sweden.
