I also like the Wit the Beatles cover

MMT is probably my least favorit, it's my favorite album though.

For me, it's probably the Abbey Road cover, although the Sgt. Pepper cover is a strong contender.

Abbey Road. It's a great photo, and thoroughly iconic.

Abbey Road, followed by the Please Please Me/Beatles 62-66 67-70 covers.  MMT I like as well.

One thing about the Pepper cover - has anyone noticed that after all Mr Blake's efforts at making life size cut outs, dragging in the wax dummies and photographing it as a tablaeu (sp) it still looks remarkably flat? He could have achieved the same result with a bit of sixties cut and pasting.

I think it would have been difficult to achieve any sense of depth in that shot. Cardboard cutouts would leave quite sharp shadows if lit to attempt depth. If only they'd had Photoshop in 1967!

It's a shame, because that is exactly what he was trying to do. All that effort seemsd a bit pointless otherwise.

Yes, the idea completely fails for me. Terry Gilliam would have done a better job.

I like Sgt Pepper's, because I love that every time I look at it I see someone new. Same thing for Revolver. I should probably put Revolver first because I haven't examined it as closely as Pepper's, so there are still some surprises on there for me, but I love the colors of Peppers, and I am all about colors!!

I love the story about how they got Rubber soul to have that distorted look. It makes me smile.

The guy that took their pictures had a piece of cardboard cut out to the size of an album and was showing them the possible pictures of them for the cover with a slide viewer, and they picked that picture and one of the legs of the viewer fell off the table it was on and the picture got distorted (the way it looks on the album). and according to Paul, they all freaked out and got excited and asked "Can we have that?!?" and he made it happen for them.

I think it was on the anthology Dvd's... pretty sure that's where I heard it, cause I remember paul telling the story and mocking the faces they made, jaws on the floor, and excited "CAN WE HAVE THAT?!?!"
