Yesterday and Today

The Beatles release “the butcher cover” album on June 20, 1966. The original cover was considered the Fab Four’s comment on the Vietnam War. About 750,000 copies of the album were printed in the USA and shipped to DJs. Word got out, people freaked — including the Chairman of EMI, Capitol Records’ parent, and the album was recalled. The new album with a new photo was released at the same time.
