Being forced to reshoot a
cover for their American only release, "Yesterday and Today," the Beatles decided on the seemingly starightforward
shot seen above. This new cover was steamed overtop of the recalled "Butcher Albums" saving EMI the cost of throwing
out the old albums and having to print thousands of new album covers.
The Beatles still managed
to include one clue on this new cover however...Paul
is the Beatle in a box, underneath the rest of the band. If you turn the
record on its side, it looks as if Paul is actually in a coffin. If you don't buy this
clue, at the very least, Paul is obviously singled out as different from the rest of
the group again and it is fairly clear that the Beatles are trying to distinguish him from the group.
