1966: "Paperback writer" by The Beatles was # 1 this week

It's a shame that I did not save all of those wonderful 45 cover photos.   My guess is that this one is quite a collector's item.   After all, George and John are shown playing the guitar as lefties.  

The Beatles released 3 LPs between Christmas 1965 and the summer of 1966.   However,  "Paperback writer", nor the B-side of "Rain", was included in "Rubber Soul", "Yesterday and today" or "Revolver".     

"Paperback writer" was one of the group's finest 45s.   The B-side of "Rain" was a sign of things to come.     

The two songs were introduced on The Ed Sullivan Show in 2 fantastic promo films.   

Why wasn't this 45 included in the "Revolver" LP?   It seems to fit that one beautifully.   
By the way, the book shown below has a song by song story of everyone recorded and released by the group.   It is a wonderful resource to remember all of those tunes that we listened to on vinyl many years ago.
