The Beatles Yesterday and Today stereo ‘third state’ butcher cover. This ‘third state’ version features the ‘butcher’ cover, the previously affixed ‘trunk’ cover pasteover having been carefully removed from the album jacket to reveal the butcher cover underneath. In very good condition, with adhesive residue and rubbing to cover, several tack holes to corners, light soiling, and edgewear. The record and inner sleeve are included. Within days of releasing this miscellany of previous hits, Capitol recalled all copies in response to retailers’ negative reactions to the original macabre cover image. The recalled copies were ‘retrofitted’ with a new pictorial flat, pasted over the first, featuring an innocuous image of the boys posed around a steamer trunk. The stereo albums are much rarer than their mono brethren.
