Artifact: Promo poster for Beatles' Rock'n'Roll Music compilation

Capitol's 1950s-style packaging and promotion for the Beatles Rock'n'Roll Music compilation bugged John Lennon, who wrote a letter to the label suggesting they use photographs of the band in their Hamburg days by Astrid Kirchherr  and Jurgen Vollmer instead.

I have a fondness for the collection, though, it being the first Beatles LP I ever owned.
