John Lennon's letter to Capitol
This reply was written to Capitol Records by John Lennon in 1977 explaining which of the
cover samples that he wanted used. They had sent him three different mock-up designs for the
gatefold cover, of which he selected "sample B." There were also "dust sleeve" samples
sent as well as inside variations.
Of special interest, his "P.P.S." at the bottom of the letter
confirming he wanted the album title to be "The Beatles - Live At The Hollywood Bowl." In the future,
we will show photos of these mock-up covers and sleeves.
