The cover

The cover was shot by Robert Freeman on 22 August 1963 in the Palace Court Hotel, Bournemouth, England. He was already famous for working on the first Pirelli Calendar and for photographing Khrushchev in the Kremlin. But it was his black-and-white photos of the jazz-legend John Coltrane that brought him to the Beatles' attention. Paul McCartney remembered: Robert Freeman is a celebrated photographer famous for his album cover photos for the The Beatles. ...

He arranged us in a hotel corridor: it was very un-studio-like. The corridor was very dark, and there was a window at the end, and by using this heavy source of natural light coming from the right, he got that very moody picture which most people think he must have worked at forever and ever. But it was only an hour. He sat down, took a couple of rolls, and that was it.

Freeman himself recalled:

They had to fit in the square format of the cover, so rather than have them all in a line, I put Ringo in the bottom right corner, since he was the last to join the group. He was also the shortest.

The original idea was to paint the picture from edge to edge, with no bleeding or title, but the studio vetoed it, on the grounds that the Beatles were not yet famous enough to carry a nameless cover. (The first album to carry an edge-to-edge cover was the Rolling Stones' self-titled debut, released a few months later.) The studio also tried to pull the cover because the Beatles were not smiling, and it was only after George Martin intervened that they won the day. Freeman was eventually paid £75 for his work (three times the normal fee). This article is about the rock band. ...

Over the years, the cover has been parodied several times. In 1974, the Residents scribbled on it and released it as Meet the Residents.

Van Halen did a similar cover (not necessarily a parody but an undeniable imitation) for their album OU812. Utopia's cover for its Deface the Music album was also a parody.

Relentlessly imaginative and experimental, the Beatles grabbed a hold of the international mass consciousness in 1964 and never let go for the next six years, always staying ahead of the pack in terms of creativity but never losing their ability to communicate their increasingly sophisticated ideas to a mass audience.
The Beatles hadn't fully developed at this point, and these recordings -- many of which (including a couple of Sheridan-less tracks) were issued only after the band's rise to fame -- found their talents in a most embryonic state.
When the Beatles premiered their hippie anthem "All You Need Is Love" as part of a worldwide TV broadcast, they had been truly anointed as spokespersons for their generation (a role they had not actively sought), and it seemed they could do no wrong.
