From Capitol Records (ST-2553) this isTHE BEATLES YESTERDAY AND TODAYbyJOHN, PAUL, GEORGE and RINGO.It has thefamous BUTCHER photograph on front cover, a rare stereo album in remarkable condition (in this case the stereo version is scarcer than the mono). This is the real thing -- not a copy, not a reprint, not a counterfeit, not a bootleg, not a reissue; it is a beautiful, peeled cover with certificate of authenticity from Gary Hein, the ultimate authority on all things Beatles. Here's your chance to own the single hardest-to-find Beatles' collectible ever.
Jacket front is finely textured and about flawless, NEAR MINT MINUS or better; white surfaces on back cover are very clean with a few minor stains being some kind of tape residue. Seams are intact and sturdy; the spine is firm and nicely blocked with printing slightly off-center; some rubbing to spine at top. All corners are perfect right angles, i.e., no bumped corners; slight bowing but nothing outstanding. Overall Mr. Hein rates the cover EXCELLENT stating “Some typical wear is exhibited as a result of age, storage and use over the last 40+ years”.
Note: The horizontal lines visible in the photos above are produced by the peeling process itself and we have exaggerated them so you can get a better idea of this piece with warts and all. In truth, these horizontal lines are almost invisible to the naked eye.
The original inner sleeve is present (about NEAR MINT+) showing no wrinkles or tears or other problems associated with aging. A remarkable piece of paper!
Labels are flawless -- no spindle marks anywhere, MINT. Also, the ridge is one inch from the spindle hole both sides, a sign of the first printing of the label.
The grooves show no buffs, no scuffs, no hairline marks and no scratches -- in fact, no marks of any kind on the vinyl, probably never played. The matrix shows an “A” both sides indicating a first mother and the letters I-A-M appear inside the tiny triangle which means this record was manufactured at the Scranton plant, a fact confirmed by the number on jacket back (2). Obviously, the pristine wax rates MINT and has been thoroughly cleaned on a VPI with care taken not to leave any mark on the labels.
Note: Mr. Hein’s assessment of EX and his certificate regards the cover only; he has not seen the inner sleeve, the labels nor the wax.
This piece is certainly of collectible, archive quality suitable for display or framing; perfect for playing. Your Beatles’ collection is not complete without it.
As always, we have placed the LP in a state-of-the-art MFSL inner sleeve within separate cover for protection during travel and for your long-term storage needs at home. Both covers are then housed in museum quality outer sleeves for the ultimate in protection and will be shipped via your favorite method. The original cover contains an acid-free insert to absorb cardboard bleeding on the inside of the jacket, a problem faced by all covers made before the mid-1970s. This insert also acts as stiffener and we recommend you leave it in place as it will continue to impede acid bleeding within the jacket.
The package comes with Mr. Hein’s certificate of authenticity and a copy of the recall letter from Capitol Records, June 14, 1966.
Note: Shipping is the responsibility of the winner; we recommend UPS and full insurance coverage since you’ll be able to track your package online every step of the way. We’ll ship same day if possible by any method the winner wishes.
