It was still
customary for EMI and Capitol to release different versions popular UK records to the US in 1966. In doing so, they would leave off certain songs from the previous albums and then make a whole other album
of the left out songs so they could get more money from the public. In this case EMI
created “Yesterday and Today” by taking songs from “Rubber Soul,” “Help!”
and “Revolver” (which hadn’t been released in America yet) that had previosuly been left off the
American releases of these albums.
Paul is holding the head of one of the dolls in his lap showing that he was decapitated.
Paul’s face looks strange. His
teeth are messed up and he looks to be starting a beard perhaps trying to start his disguise.
The watch on his arm supposedly reads 5:00 (supposedly when the accident occurred).
George is also holding a doll’s head to show decapitation and perhaps to indicate that he is the
"head" of the plot to tell the public about Paul..
5) Paul has a pair of false teeth on his arm because the "false
teeth" are on the "false Paul."
