Original (rough) photo for Sir Paul's first album.
I know that's John's foot, but every time I see this picture I imagine that George has suffered a horrific shin bone fracture.
Van Halen Women And Children First
It looks like there was a lot of outlining and etching done in the pre-press department(s) on this image.
From the back cover of the album. Not to show cropped/uncropped, but color vs black and white (or perhaps duotone or even tritone?). Ed's pink jumpsuit looks... well it's something. I'm glad the art director didn't go with a color image on the back cover. I don't know the real reason why, but maybe they saved money by printing the same colors for both front and back cover, as opposed to paying for 4/c process just for one image on the back cover.
My favorite thing about this is that it's even clearer that Eddie is wearing velcro sneakers. I also had velcro shoes around this same time, but I had the excuse of being 9 years old.

Full back cover to The Velvet Underground White Light/White Heat. The band at The Boston Tea Party.

I see some photos are missing from my post (Uncropped versions of album cover photographs ), so here's an updated list because I see it makes some interest for people
Thanks! Maybe post the original covers as well? Or, at least, the name of the album in question. I have no idea what those are, save for the first one.
Ok, those are Rage Against the Machine s/t, The Doors - Bright Midnight Sampler (if I'm not mistaken it was released mirrored, so both cover and uncropped versions should be mirrored to resemble "real" look) and Metallica - Load.
LOAD it was!!! I thought it was vaguely familiar. Now I know why
this is obviously not the actual shot used for the cover but....
