Picture Sleeves


























Probably my favorite aspect of the Beatles' 1 project was the UK double LP set, which included a large poster of the various picture sleeves that graced the inner pages of the CD booklet. The LP dust jackets also contained photos of these unique sleeves from various countries. Of course, the large individual reprints of the psychedelic Richard Avedon photos also add value to the LP release. (I have never been pleased with the cover art of 1, however--abysmal. The psychedelic photos would have been better on the cover.)

Here are some large scans of the 45 RPM single sleeves that were pictured on the LP dust jackets. (Click to enlarge.) Note the cute picture of the Fabs in their newsboy caps gracing the "Penny Lane"/"Strawberry Fields Forever" sleeve...(!) I also love the photo from the Budokan on the Japanese single for "Yellow Submarine"/"Eleanor Rigby"--George is shown waving, an act to elicit more screams from the reserved Japanese audience to cover up the mistakes the band were making on stage!


There is a possibility that I may take some time off from blog postings, as things are quite hectic at the moment. Thanks to all who visit, comment, and email!

"From the dew-soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar,
When the dawn begins to crack.
Its all part of my autumn almanac.

This is great! Do you mind if a post a couple on my blog? Of course I will link back and credit you, and will not post all of the images, just a few favorites.

Also, is there any chance that you have a list of what all of them are? It's just curiosity really -- obviously you can tell which songs they are, but I mean which country of release since there were so many different packagings of the same single in many cases.
