The Beatles Yesterday And Today - 3rd State - Mono 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, but caused such an uproar that it was almost immediately 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 image.

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 its natural state is known as a first state copy. Mono copies fetch many thousands of dollars, regardless of condition, with stereo copies fetching even more since there were twenty 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 its first state.

CONDITION

The labels are Capitol rainbow rim in design with clear bright text, no blemishes or excessive spindlemarks & 'MFD BY CAPITOL' text on the label black area inside the colourband border.

The vinyl is in VG- condition with wear to the grooves & paper scuffs & hairline marks. Playback is still nice - Praise be to the deity of your choice for these solid sixties pressings. There is a still a deep sheen both sides. As the vinyl is identical to a later 'Trunk' sleeve first pressing, the condition of the vinyl is not really much of an issue.

This copy is complete with the correct period 'Capitol 66' advertising inner and a copy of the recall letter as sent out by Ron Tepper from Capitol explaining the recall.

The all important front slick is in outstanding condition, having been carefully peeled with little evidence to tell that this once had another slick pasted over the 'butcher' image. The image has retained its original texture & still has bright, clear colours, with few signs of discolouring.

There are splits to the paper around the cover's edges & a horizontal hairline split on the back by the top edge. There is some minor discolouring to the back slick with all text clearly legible. If the whole point of this is the front, then this, like the vinyl, isn't much of an issue either. The sleeve remains intact & looking spectacular.

A worthwhile addition to any serious collection!
We would recommend upgrading the vinyl at some point if you wish to play the item, but for display or as a collection filler 'Butcher' sleeve, this copy is the one.
