Alternative Album Shots
« on: February 08, 2006, 01:01:05 PM »

Following on from Bobber's brilliant un-stretched Rubber Soul pic, I thought that it would be a great idea to have all the alternative photoshoots for their albums all in on place.

I know of at least 5 versions of Angus McBean's Please Please Me session - excluding the re-shoot, of which I know of two versions.

So, if you have the pics, please post them here! ;D




PS - no alternative White Album jokes!!! ;)

It would really have been a nice touch if they had their Sgt. Pepper fold out Lp done like a portrait book and included all the different pics of them on the cover shot. I have never seen these before and they are stunning to say the least!

Anyone got a full set of Angus McBean's Please Please Me session shots in colour?

The officially realeased versions:
1 Please Please Me LP
2 The Beatles No.1 EP
3 1962-1966 'Red Album'

I have a few other shots from this photo session, but unfortunately they're incredibly small pics.

Yep, those are the released versions, here are a few more:




The Please Please Me LP version without the lettering - this can be found on the Please Me Do bootleg and has been cropped - anyone got a better version of this?




Taken from another bootleg!




Black and white version of the above with no elseve lettering.

And the alternates from the Blue Album!

The shot used on the Blue Album.




A slightly different version of the above sleeve taken from a bootleg of the Glyn Johns mix of the Get Back sessions.




Different suits for this bootleg of GLyn John's 2nd mix of the Get Back sessions!




This is one that Kate just posted on another thread in the bootleg section! (12th May 2006)

Now that's what I'm talking about!!!! I have never even seen the 1st and 2nd pics before!! I think the 3rd pic is the same as the shot used on the Beatles Come Together bootleg (see page 1 of this topic).

Those are absolutely awesome!! Do you have any more of this series? Also, do you have these in a higher resolution (I've started collecting the out-takes you see!).

Cheers again (flower)
