The front cover of Beatles for Sale
, released in late 1964. The downbeat, somber mood of many of the songs from the album was reflected in the cover, which shows the unsmiling, weary-looking group in an autumn scene photographed at Hyde Park in London.
"The album cover was rather nice: Robert Freeman's photos. It was easy. We did a session lasting a couple of hours and had some reasonable pictures to use....The photographer would always be able to say to us, 'Just show up,' because we all wore the same kind of gear all the time. Black stuff; white shirts and big black scarves." - Paul McCartney
