Picture This…

Iconic front cover of THE BEATLES‘ second longplayer, simply titled ‘WTH THE BEATLES’.

The album came out on 22 November 1963, 56 years (!) ago today, only eights months after their debut Please Please Me. It featured eight originals (including George Harrison‘s first recorded song) and six covers. The cover’s cool black and white photo was taken by Robert Freeman. George Harrison later remarked that the cover of the first LP was ‘crap’ and the second one “the beginning of us being actively involved in The Beatles’ artwork … the first one where we thought, ‘Hey, let’s get artistic.”
