The Beatles Yesterday And Today - 3rd State - Mono - VG+ 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.


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

The vinyl is in FAIR condition with obvious groove wear, spindle marks, scuffs & light hairline scratches 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 & can easily be replaced at a later stage.

This copy is complete with the correct period 'Capitol 66' advertising inner, which is in lovely condition with just the odd light crease. A copy of the recall letters as sent out by Ron Tepper from Capitol explaining the recall is also included.

The all important front slick is in fantastic 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 very little evidence of discolouring. This is a beautiful example. The condition issues regarding the sleeve are centred away from the main selling point & are highlighted below.

There is a small spot of water damage noticeable by the top edge & in the same position on the back, as well as some minor corner discolouring away from the butcher image. There is some paper wear around the edges, as to be expected, with a half inch split in the top right corner & very minor bowing. There is no writing on the back panel & all text remains legible, despite some fracturing to the paper along the spine. 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 & the front panel looks superb.

All in all, a very 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.
