Beatles Album Sleeves

Whatever your opinion of the music The Beatles made, I reckon there's no denying they had some great Album Sleeve designs - remember this is the 1960's and  maybe the high point of  Sleeve design - the 12" format allowing for rather more input that a CD Cover (actually the last one tipped into the 70's, and is the worst of them). The Beatles made twelve studio albums in the seven years they were together, which is some going in itself. Here are the Sleeve designs in chronological order:

1963 Please Please Me


1963 With the Beatles


1964 A Hard Day’s Night


1964 Beatles For Sale


1965 Help


1965 Rubber Soul


1966 Revolver


1967 Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band


1968 The Beatles [White Album]


1969 Yellow Submarine


1969 Abbey Road


1970 Let It Be
