I spend my days looking at Apple Records releases from around the world so you don’t have to! Most of these are French unless otherwise noted. But we’ll begin above in Germany where “All Together Now” was released as a single (news to me). Below, we have a few Lennons. None of them are all that though I recently found out that the picture that adorns this “Be-Bop-A-Lula” single (and the Rock and Roll LP) was found by May Pang at the first Beatlesfest. As usual, all of these images are from ebay.
Here are two French Wings singles. “Junior’s Farm” and the elusive (or, more accurately, always overpriced) “Hi Hi Hi” picture sleeve featuring the band in some seriously great outfits.
“Hi Hi Hi” in Portugal:
My most recent obsession has been with these awesome looking “Eat at Home” singles. I’ll have to pick up a few eventually. The cover art on some of them feature the same picture as the “Another Day” single which I went on about a while back.
Spain (not on Apple!):
Italy has the best one:
I don’t remember where this one is from but the orange Apple works (probably Stateside):
Speaking of Ram, I think one of the Beatles photo blogs posted this a few weeks ago but I can’t quite remember which one. I have no idea if it is a legitimate ad or not. If it is, it’s great. If it’s some fan designed thing it is horribly lame.
All hail the brilliant French “Something” single! Pretty mind-blowing stuff here.
Plastic Ono Band’s “Mother.” Sharp picture:
A French “Hey Jude” similar to the French sleeves I posted last time I did something like this:
Did Ringo lose a bet (in France)?
This Billy Preston cover is pretty exciting:
Yoko repeats herself:
A pretty great “Mind Games”:
