Beatles Butcher Album and the Beatles rooftop concert

The Beatles,in my opinion the greatest 

band ever,period.
The Butcher album cover for "Yesterday and Today" .
Some copies of this album are out there somwhere, would love to add one to my collection.

This is a picture of the album cover and you can read the story below of how it came about, taken from the site, "THE WORST ALBUM COVERS OF ALL TIME".

Visit the site:

The Beatles Yesterday and Today, 1966,John, Paul, George, and Ringo were plenty pissed when Capitol Records slapped together this album of songs from previously released records. So in protest of the label's "butchering," they posed for the cover splashed with blood and holding doll parts. Retailers revolted, and a revised cover, featuring the Fab Four among innocuous luggage, was rushed onto shelves. About the only people who prefer the grisly butcher version are collectors, who covet the rare cover. -Shame this is just the "urban legend" reason for the picture. The picture was not a protest, but an art piece, and The Beatles had NOTHING to do with it's conception. But that doesn't make it any prettier.
