The Beatles: Rare album once owned by John Lennon to be auctioned

The so-called “butcher” cover of Yesterday And Today caused controversy when it was released in the US back in 1966.

A Beatles album once owned by John Lennon – and believed to be one of the rarest in the band’s history – is up for auction.

The so-called “butcher” cover of Yesterday And Today caused controversy when it was released in the US back in 1966.

It shows the Fab Four smiling, dressed in white coats and covered in pieces of raw meat and decapitated baby dolls.

The cover, believed to be The Beatles’ protest against the Vietnam War, was subsequently withdrawn and replaced with more public-friendly artwork.

It is estimated that Lennon’s personal copy of the record will sell for £136,000 when it goes under the hammer at Julien’s Auctions annual event – Music Icons: The Beatles In Liverpool.
