At the right edge of the cover on The Beatles, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album cover there is a Shirley Temple doll wearing a stripped sweater with letters on it. Upon a closer look, Temple’s sweater says “Welcome The Rolling Stones” an homage to The Beatles fellow British band and friends The Rolling Stones.
“Sgt. Pepper” was released on June 1, 1967 and less than a year later on December 8, 1967, The Rolling Stones returned the tribute by having The Beatles hidden in the cover of their own “Their Satanic Majesties Request“. “Their Satanic Majesties Request” album cover looked very similar to “Sgt. Pepper” and it had a lenticular 3-D cover so it made The Beatles a little hard to spot.
Here’s the non-lenticular 3-D cover of the album that shows John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr’s heads in little bubbles. Check it out…
