The Beatles Yesterday And Today - 2nd State - EX US vinyl LP album (LP record)
Tracklisting / Additional Info: The Beatles Yesterday & Today album was released in the US by Capitol Records on June 15th 1966. The cover featured a highly controversial picture of the group dressed in white butcher smocks showing raw cuts of meat and parts of toy dolls strewn about their apparel.

The album was issued to radio stations and stores in advance of release and caused such an uproar that it was recalled.

As so many copies of the offensive cover had already been manufactured at great cost it was decided that rather than scrap these covers and reprint, a different picture slick showing the group around a luggage trunk would be printed and pasted over the offensive sleeve.

As news spread of the picture underneath people tried to peel off the new slick to reveal the picture underneath with varying success.

A butcher cover as issued by Capitol in it's natural state is known as a first state copy, mono copies in good condition fetch many thousands of dollars, regardless of condition, stereo copies fetch even more since there were 20 times more mono than stereo copies produced.

A butcher cover with the trunk cover slick pasted over the top is known as a second state. If you look carefully at the white area on the right hand side of the sleeve, Ringo's black V-neck sweater can be seen through the replacement slick.

Lastly a butcher sleeve with the trunk cover slick peeled off is known as a third state. It is very rare that a trunk cover slick can be removed without damaging the butcher picture underneath.

Very few copies were reportedly sold in stores with this cover in it's first state and a first state stereo copy in resonable condition will now cost the collector in excess of $10,000!

The Sleeve:

Ringo's black sweater is clearly visible in the white area of the pasted over trunk cover and is therefore quite obviously a genuine 2nd state butcher sleeve.
The trunk slick has been placed slightly off centre leaving approximately 2mm of the original Butcher cover visible down the left hand side.

Condition wise, the sleeve has only minor shelfwear scuffing and a little discolouration and ringwear but less than you would expect considering it's age. Unlike many copies of this album that turn up, the edges are free from splits and tears and the spine has clear, legible print. This is in amazing condition - after all it's not every day you find such a legendary item that is 40+ years old!

The Vinyl:

Labels are rainbow rim in design.
The vinyl has some minor visible marks, however none of the musical content is exclusive to this pressing - it is identical musically to the mono reissues on both CD and vinyl; what makes this item special is the sleeve. Many collectors find a nice sleeve like this one and upgrade the vinyl from a regular trunk sleeve issue anyway. That's not to say that the vinyl is in bad shape, it is graded VG+ and plays better than it looks.

Although the vinyl is not mint this item remains one of the best that we've found in 20 years of dealing with collectables and should not be passed over lightly!

A fantastic opportunity to purchase a highly sought after collectable in respectable condition without needing to upgrade.

Condition : This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). We buy items as close to Mint condition as possible and many will be unplayed and as close to new as you could hope to find. Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed. Click here for more info.
