    I found it on Beatlefan's facebook page, but it didn't originate there. So far, I've been able to trace it back to it's pre-facebook appearance in a russian Beatles forum.

    Interesting. Your original post said it started making the rounds on Facebook on Monday but I saw it there on Sunday so it might've been there before the Russians got a hold of it. Anyways, here's a ton of fun info on the cover. Your blogs have obviously influenced my thoroughness!

    Certainly more thorough than I've been able to be for the past year or so! You might want to correct the typo, not Roger but Robert Whitaker 😉 Great blog!

    Nothing beats the fish-eye. Except… knowing Dr. Winston O'Boogie is sporting pre-hipster wrecked serge de nimes!

    Hi – one expert – who wants to remain unnamed – told me he is very confident that this is a photoshop recreation. Personally I cant imagine. Were light blue jeans avaiiable in 1965?

    Jeans that have been put through the washer many times were certainly available.
