Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
Original Beatles LP, UK 1967
Not only the music of Sgt. Pepper was said to be groundbreaking,
the cover artwork (by Peter Blake) was, and still is, an inspiration for many artists and artwork designers.
In 1968 there was a very special parody (without covers) of the sleeve by Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention. See below. The front and backside of their album We're only in it for the money is a parody of the Sgt. Peppers inner Beatles sleeve photo's, of their special clothing.
A parody of the Pepper frontside photo can be found on the inner sleeve side of the Zappa LP.
We're Only In It For The Money

The inner side of the Zappa gatefold LP sleeve, and later also the CD frontphoto, is a parody of the Sgt. Pepper frontphoto.
