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.

My Fave is With the Beatles.  I love that black and White with the shadows.   Its such an awesome look. I've always loved that cover then best.  My 2nd favorite is Beatles for Sale.  I've heard the cover is supposed to represent the 4 seasons but the only season I can see is Autumn...forturnatly thats also my favorite season.

If I say the White Album, will people attack me?
Anyways, I actually like the Help! cover. I like George's top hat.

Well... almost every Beatles album cover is iconic (this band really excelled in everything)... Furthermore the colours on the album often reflect the music contained in it (pure genius). This choice is just impossinle. ;)

my fav covers by them are probley on With the Beatles (roll over beethoven, please mr postman,
devil in her heart) . strangest thing is they didn't just do the song like the original, they sort
of changed it in their 'beatle-way'  ;D and made sound slightly different.

As cliche as it may be, Abbey Road.  The most recognizable album cover of all time.

I love Beatles for Sale too. On the back of the American album there's a picture with them looking up, shot in the autumn, with leaves all around them. Just SO COOL!!!!!

I dig the Hey Jude cover...

The boys looked like they just crawled out of bed (with the exception of Ringo), and slid into the first available attire and snapped some pictures ;D

I also dig the lid that John is sporting, and the lid that's on the statue, (been trying to figure out the significance of that since 1972).

Beatles '65 is supposed to represent all four seasons...  Seeing the Beatles hold springs for springtime (get it?) totally cracks me up.  http://z.about.com/d/classicrock/1/0/y/I/beatles_65.jpg

I think my favorite album cover is Sgt. Pepper, but I also really like Abbey Road, A Hard Day's Night, and With the Beatles.

I have to say that that I think the iconism (?) in some cases is more to do with the fact that they're Beatle albums, not because of the quality of the cover. A shot of them crossing a road isn't particularly clever or inspired - it wouldn't be iconic if someone else did it. Likewise Please Please Me, Help! and Let It Be. Nothing particularly artful or original about them - just iconic for what they represent (as opposed to being a result of their all encompassing genius). Phew.
Sorry, but I can't see that colour thing either.

Abbey Road has such a casual appearance I like it the best.
