Lot 818: Sought-after 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. Partially repaired splits to edges, soiling, a few small areas of surface loss, and some adhesive residue along the bottom, otherwise very good condition. 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. The stereo albums are much rarer than their mono counterparts.
