Mod Confession | ‏The Beatles – Yesterday And Today

in Hidden Tracks

‏“Day trippers are people who go on a day trip, right? But it was kind of – you know, you’re just a weekend hippie. Get it?” — John Lennon


‏[pukka_dropcap style=”” txt_color=”” bg_color=”” size=””]I[/pukka_dropcap]n the past 50 years, there were non-stop discussion on the best album ever made by the Beatles. There must’ve been a hundred times where we all have touched this topic among our mates.

‏I could never come to a conclusion about the the best Beatles album, but I could always suggest the most frequent played Beatles vinyl in my apartment, Yesterday And Today . This is the ninth Capitol Records album release by the Beatles in June 1966. It’s original controversial butcher album cover that were ferociously criticised by the media and distributors. After advance copies were sent to disc jockeys and record reviewers, negative reaction to the cover photo was so strong Capitol recalled 750,000 copies from distributors to replace the cover. The total cost to Capitol to replace the cover and promotional materials was rumoured to be $250,000, wiping out their initial profit. Nevertheless, the album reached #1 on the US Billboard charts by 30 July 1966. It stayed at number one for five weeks.

‏The album has a special song list taken from Help, Rubber Soul and Revolver LP, it also includes the most intriguing b-sides of all time ‘Day Tripper’ and ‘We Can Work It Out’! This vinyl provides all the vitamins and minerals one would require for the day and thus every single organs and cells in your flesh and blood function smoothly.
