    Beatles Yesterday and Today Still Sealed Second State "Butcher Cover" Stereo LP (Capitol 2553, 1966). Such an innocent cover featuring well-behaved English lads... but wait! What's lurks just below the surface? Why, the infamous, bloody "Butcher Cover", that's what! The Beatles - how could they? Well, aside from a relatively few dastardly covers that didn't get properly recalled, Capitol did attempt to cover its tracks by the recall, then to mitigate expenses by merely pasting over some of the original covers with the innocuous "Trunk Cover". It's a chore, and requires a healthy dose of expertise to neatly peel off the outer cover, but that will be your decision should you win this rarity! As with "First State" copies, the Stereo version is much rarer than the Mono. Plus, it has the original price tag from the West Coast discount chain store, Unimart. There is a seam split on 50% of the opening side of the cover. Condition: NM 8 (cover)/ GM-MT 10 (still sealed disc).
