The Hidden Walrus On The Cover Of The Beatles Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band Album

There is so much going on the cover of The Beatles ”Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” that I can probably write a new story about it everyday.  I do have to admit that this one caught me by surprise.  When The Beatles released the Anthology DVD’s they included a video for “A Day In The Life” that ends with the album cover of “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band“.  For some reason they decided to pause the frame and mirror a portion of the right side of the album cover as you can see below…

Of course there had to be a reason behind it.  The reason is, if you use a mirror or photoshop (as I did below) on Diana Dors left elbow it creates an image of a Walrus behind her.

Months after “Sgt. Peppers” release,  The Beatles would release the “Magical Mystery Tour” with Paul McCartney dressed as a Walrus on the album cover and containing the John Lennon song “I Am The Walrus”.

I don’t know what the obsession was with Walruses at that moment but Lennon would later reveal on “The White Album” song “Glass Onion” that “The Walrus Was Paul“.  Here’s the clip of The Beatles Anthology video of “A Day In The Life“.  Check it out for yourself…

    If Macca died way back in 66 – Heather Mills wouldn’t have had a leg to stand on in court would she?
