Beatle LP Cover Banned

uncredited writer, KRLA Beat, 2 July 1966

THE BEATLES have turned out the most nauseating album cover ever seen in the U.S. The jacket [of yesterday and Today — RBP Ed] is in color and shows the four Beatles in butcher outfits with chopped up raw meat (the meat of what we don't know) lying all over them. If this isn't bad enough, on top of the meat and the Beatles are decapitated baby dolls.
