    The Beatles: Yesterday and Today (Butcher Cover) - 2nd State LP. An original Mono LP pressing of the famous (or infamous) "Yesterday and Today" album. Originally produced with a cover image featuring the Beatles draped in doll parts and meat, the shocking cover was hastily scrapped by Capitol and quickly replaced by a more appropriate photograph that was pasted over the initial cover. The LP offered here is a second state issue, with the original paste-on cover still fully affixed. In overall excellent condition with sharp corners and only the slightest hints of surface wear. Complete with the original LP in its protective sleeve. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
