Album Cover Art Wednesday: Meet The Beatles

Beatles week continues at First Draft with the cover for the Fab Four’s first American LP for Capitol Records. An earlier release on VeeJay went nowhere. I prefer the British albums for their content and sequencing, but this was a monster hit and included a raft and/or slew of huge hit songs. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Meet The Beatles sold a lot of copies but their singles did even better:

    I have a copy of that cover tacked to the wall in my music room.
    I also have a framed photo of Frank Zappa, playing his SG in concert.
    I think more than anyone else with whom I don’t share significant chunks of genome, the Beatles and Zappa made me what I am today.
