The reissue cover features the skriking portrait of the Beatles previously used on the Love Me Do picture sleeve. The portrait was derived from the Dezzo Hoffmann color photograph. The Beatles songs are prominently listed on the cover. There are both mono and stereo versions of this cover, which is known among collectors as the “portrait cover”. Both use the same liner notes slick from the first issue.¬†Mono cover has the number VJ 1085 in bottom right corner. Stereo version has word “STEREO” appears at the top center of the cover and the number VJS 1085 in the upper right corner.
