US version omits tracks, “I’m Only Sleeping”, “Doctor Robert” and “And Your Bird Can Sing” due to these songs been released on Yesterday And Today  earlier in the year. These songs were not replaced with any other former track. This reduced the amount of John Lennon’s writing contribution to the album.

 

This is the last varied album for the remainder of the Beatles career. All albums from here on out will be identical releases in Europe and North America.

 

From Wikipedia:

The album's Grammy Award-winning cover design was created by Klaus Voormann, one of the Beatles' friends from their fledgling years in Hamburg. In the UK, Revolver‍‍ '​‍s 14 tracks were released to radio stations throughout July 1966, with the music signifying what author Ian MacDonald later described as "a radical new phase in the group's recording career".
