    Description

    The Beatles: Original 1966 Black and White Butcher Cover Poster. Rare and original proof prototype for window advertisement, 11 x 17 in size, from Capitol Records for the band's 1966 release "Yesterday and Today", featuring an image of the highly controversial original "Butcher" cover. When the cover was deemed inappropriate by Capitol and quickly changed with a more conservative paste-on cover, all record stores were advised not to use any advertisements involving the controversial cover that were released prior to the decision. This was never released since the original cover was pulled, and being a proof, is the only known example to surface. In superb condition with virtually no signs of wear. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
