By Robert Freeman
About the image

John Lennon with Sir George Henry Martin in studio. Martin is sometimes referred to as "the Fifth Beatle" - a title that he owes to his work as producer or co-producer of all of The Beatles' original records, as well as playing piano on some of their tracks.

In recognition of his services to the music industry and popular culture, Martin was made a Knight in 1996. 

Freeman is responsible for five consecutive UK album covers during the peak years of "Beatlemania," from 1963 to 1965. His work was featured on With The Beatles, A Hard Days NightBeatles For Sale, Help! and Rubber Soul. He also designed and photographed the covers for John Lennon's two books In His Own Write (Simon & Schuster, 1964) and A Spaniard in the Works (Simon & Schuster, 1965) and the end credit sequences of their two films: A Hard Days Night and Help!.
