    Beatles Yesterday and Today Stereo 3rd State Peeled Butcher Cover (Capitol ST 2553, 1966). The Fab's 9th Capitol album (not counting the narrative album The Beatles' Story) became the 8th to hit #1 on Billboards' Top 200 list, holding down the top position for 5 weeks in-between Rubber Soul and Revolver. As great as the music was, collectors know the album better for its banned first cover -- the infamous "Butcher Cover." This is an outstanding example of the rarer Stereo version cover, with a very good peel job! This is from the LA pressing plant (#5). There is no record with this cover, only the original orange inner sleeve. Condition: NM 8 (front cover)/ EX 7 (back cover).
