Remembering the Beatles Butcher Cover
Back in 1966 the Yesterday and Today album by the Beatles was originally released with the cover seen above. Since it was so grotesque Capital Records recalled them and re-released the record with a simple cover with the Beatles standing around a trunk. One day back then I was in Greenwich Village and visited the House of Oldies which has a butcher cover on sale for $20. Back in those days I didn't have that kind of money with me so I didn't buy it. Now these albums are on sale for thousands of dollars.
