Your Wednesday Moment of Words Fail Me

Somebody on the intertubes took the trouble to track down all the photos that Klaus Voorman used to create his iconic collage for the cover of Revolver.

As I said, words fail me.

Klaus is one of those rare individuals who excelled in 3 artistic endeavors, any of which he could have pursued a career in.
The Revolver cover still holds up.
Somewhere there must be a list of the best of album covers

Speaking of Revolver, it has become my favorite album by the Moptops.

Mine too, pal.

BTW, no album cover by that hack surrealist Roger Dean should be on any best of.

Let us not forget that Klaus had the Beatle haircut before the Beatles!

There's a Doctoral Thesis to be written about the influence of German culture on Beatles. Rickenbacher, Gretsch, Hofner, Ludwig, their equipment was mostly German until Vox gave them amps in an endorsement deal.

Steve, as an art major let's just say that we can agree to disagree
I know that its a prog rock thing for you but Dean is an amazing painter
Can't say that I am a fan of every painting but if I had the wallet-.

Re: Roger Dean: Having paid good money for 'Tales from Topographic Oceans,' I'm here to tell ya that the cover is the best part.
