The Beatles "Yesterday and Today" Sealed Album.

"Yesterday and Today" studio album was released in the United States and Canada in June 1966, it was the Beatles ninth album issued on Capitol Records and twelfth American release overall. "Yesterday and Today" is remembered primarily for the controversy surrounding its original cover image. Known as the "butcher cover," it was taken by photographer Robert Whitaker and shows the band dressed in white coats and covered with decapitated baby dolls and pieces of raw meat. Although the photo was intended to be part of a larger work critiquing the adulation afforded the Beatles, the band members insisted it was a statement against the Vietnam War. Others interpreted it as the Beatles protesting the record company's policy of "butchering" their albums for the North American market. In response to retailers' concern over the gory subject matter, Capitol immediately withdrew the LP and replaced the cover image with a shot of the band posed around a "steamer" trunk.

Condition: Excellent, the album is sealed in its original shrink wrap.

Authentication: A Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
