50,000 Rare ‘Butcher’ Beatles Record Covers May Be Buried in MA Landfill


Fifty-thousand rare Beatles record covers featuring a controversial photograph of the British band could have been buried at a landfill in Needham, Massachusetts, according to a newly emerged memo.

The original Yesterday and Today record cover, taken by photographer Robert Whitaker, featured The Beatles wearing butchers’ coats and holding baby doll parts and meat.

The covers for the album (released in the U.S. in June 1966), which can sell for thousands of dollars today, are often said to have been a statement against the Vietnam War (November 1955 – April 1975).
