    Beatles "Yesterday and Today" 3rd State Stereo Butcher Cover Capitol 2553 (1966). Oh, those jokesters! Doll parts and raw meat! Not so funny, opined a large percentage of the relatively few who saw it before Capitol higher-ups decided the cover was an ill-conceived idea. So, Capitol hurriedly selected an alternate cover (the "Trunk" cover), and withdrew the Butcher Cover, in some cases slapping the new cover right on top of it. That's what happened here, but the outer cover has been cleverly removed to reveal the dastardly Butcher Cover once again for we aficionados who appreciate a twisted concept when we see one! The Stereo versions is much rarer than the rare-in-its-own-right Mono version. There is some minor wear on the cover: at bottom right around Ringo, on John's left knee, on the doll head in Paul's lap, and along the spine. Condition: VG 5/ VG-EX 6.
