Lot 791: The Beatles Yesterday and Today mono 'third state' butcher cover. This 'third state' version features the 'butcher' cover, the previously affixed 'trunk' cover pasteover having been expertly removed from the album jacket to reveal the butcher cover underneath. In fine condition, with edgewear. The record is 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.
