Description


The Beatles Yesterday and Today mono 'second state' butcher cover (Capitol, 1966). This 'second state' example features the revised 'trunk cover' pasteover that Capitol Records used to fix the already printed album sleeves in response to public backlash. Ringo's tell-tale black v-neck from the original image can be seen through the pasteover on the right side. In fine condition. The record and original Capitol inner sleeve are both included. Record is in excellent condition. Accompanied by a copy of Capitol's recall letter. Within days of releasing this miscellany of previous hits, Capitol recalled all copies in response to retailers' negative reactions to the original macabre cover image: a photo of the four mop-tops dressed in butchers' coats and draped with raw meat and doll parts. The recalled copies were 'retrofitted' with a new pictorial flat, pasted over the first, featuring an innocuous image of the boys posed around a steamer trunk. An unusually nice 'unpeeled' example of this sought-after album, with the front and back both exceptionally clean.
