Beatles Cover Art Become UK Stamps

Fitting. The six albums being turned into stamps include "Sgt. Pepper," "Revolver," "With The Beatles," "Help" (a bit dodgy, that pick -- why not "Rubber Soul" or "Yellow Submarine" or "Beatles For Sale" or "A Hard Day's Night"? The only worse album cover is the ugly one for "Magical Mystery Tour"), and their most imitated cover: "Abbey Road." (How many times has that image of them crossing the road been duplicated?) Their second most influential album cover, unsurprisingly, was NOT chosen either: "The White Album." Which cover is your favorite?

And Beethoven, obviously. You've got a pretty cool looking website.
