Pastiches of Robert Freeman's iconic photograph on the front of The Beatles' second studio album With The Beatles.

Please send me a PM if you come across any more 45s with a pastiche of the original Beatles album sleeve.

Possibly the most parodied LP cover ever!, (With/Meet The Beatles) closely followed by Abbey Road and Elvis' first LP........Cartoon characters, fuzzy hand puppets, TV sitcom stars, Lego's, US politicians, A weird band from Louisiana, Another weird band from Rutland....you name it...(Who'd of thought Astrid Kirchherr's window lit portraits of John and George would've inspired so many!).......John
...

Beatlejohn -- the Kennedys one isn't a record, is it? J'accuse! It's off an alternate worlds SF anthology cover.

.....didn't say it was a record! (that's why the image is wonky)...it's on a book cover called "The Alternate Kennedys" edited by Mike Resnick (25 different speculations)...John

BJ, thanks for all those LP sleeves, all of which I'm aware. I guess for the time being we only have three 45 sleeve pastiches.

Y'know I'd willingly have sworn that I was the only person in England to have a copy of that... (I particularly liked the story where Kennedy went into acting and ended up playing Captain Kirk on Star Trek...)

The Residents cover has to be my all-time favourite.
According to one story (possibly apocryphal) George Harrison found it hilarious.
