A COLLECTION OF BEATLES OLDIES... BUT GOLDIES
|A Collection of Beatles Oldies - David Christian|
The front cover artwork was by David Christian, in very 60's flower power style.
For the rear cover a colour photograph by Robert Whitaker was chosen. It was taken on June 30, while on tour in Japan. Before the first show in the Nippon Budokan Hall they started an oil and watercolors painting on a large paper.

|The finished painting was called "Images of a woman"|
|In Japan, they realised that the photo was in reverse, so they reversed it back.|
