    Description

    The Beatles: Original 1966 Color Butcher Cover Poster. Desirable original 18 x 22 color promotional Capitol Records poster 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, thus making any original items featuring the infamous image a scarcity. A minor impression, approximately 4" in length, runs from the right edge and into the cover image, however not detracting from the poster's overall fine appearance. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
