Beatles Worldwide: An Anthology of Original LP-Releases
Christoph Maus' BEATLES WORLDWIDE (An Anthology of Original LP-Releases) is true EYE CANDY for Beatles fans. Although I already knew that several different countries had their own versions of Beatles albums (taking liberties with cover artwork AND song selection) - I simply had no idea that there were THIS many versions and enough to fill a book!
I'm going to show a few of my personal favorites from the book such as: the many variations on the WITH THE BEATLES COVER; Beatles wearing Eskimo outfits for their HOTTEST HITS, a totally different cover for RUBBER SOUL; the Shell logo on the HELP album; and the use of the Monkees logo (Wow, The Beatles copying the Monkees?). Then of course there are the many Russian albums which take many liberties in album design including: a different collage for REVOLVER; a totally different cover for HEY JUDE and the Russian record executive that added his face on the SGT. PEPPER cover!
