Brief Album Description:
Yesterday and Today is a studio album by the Beatles, their ninth album released on Capitol Records and eleventh overall
American release. It was originally issued only in the United States and Canada. In the 1970s it was issued in Japan. A later
UK release (on Compact Disc) followed in 2014. The album is remembered primarily for the controversy surrounding its original
cover image, the "butcher cover" featuring the band dressed in white smocks and covered with decapitated baby dolls and
pieces of meat. The album's title is based on the song "Yesterday". Early album cover proofs show the word "Yesterday" in
quotes. Both Tim Riley and American Songwriter journalist Jim Beviglia classified Yesterday and Today as a compilation album,
and MusicRadar said it was one in a series of "hit-filled compilation albums" that the American Capitol label "sliced and diced"
from the Beatles' original British albums.
