Yesterday and Today is the Beatles, their ninth album released on Capitol Records and twelfth overall American release. The album is remembered primarily for the controversy surrounding its original cover image. Taken by photographer Robert Whitaker, and said to be the Beatles' statement against the Vietnam War, this "butcher cover" image showed the band dressed in white smocks and covered with decapitated baby dolls and pieces of raw meat.
You cant get much better condition. This was purchased at a local estate sale from a record collector. He never took it out of the clear protective sleeve there is no wear on the record or cover at all. I would consider this in MINT condition. (ST-X-2-2553)
