Yesterday and Today (Coffin Cover)
 
Released: 1966

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.
