Sgt. Pepper

I don't remember where I found these, but they appear to be alternate shots of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover. They are of particular interest because they reveal celebrities (Albert Einstein, for one) who were hidden on the official cover.

That's Leo Gorcey (of the Bowery Boys fame) fourth from the end in the back. He allegedly wanted a fee, and was painted out of the official cover, although comedy partner Huntz Hall (third from end, same row) remained.
