Beatlefan Magazine exposes truth about the Butcher Cover
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Friday, 06/24/16 2:32 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

Everyone thinks they know the tale of the controversial "Butcher" cover for The Beatles' U.S. "Yesterday and Today" album, but the truth is more complex and fascinating, as Bruce Spizer writes in the next issue of Beatlefan Magazine.

Despite what you have read in countless books, articles, Internet sites and blogs, the "Capitol Butchers The Beatles" story is just that; a story, and a wrong one at that. Get the true story in the new Beatlefan, along with Ken Orth's look at Robert Freeman's "lost" cover for the "Revolver" album, Kit O'Toole's examination of how John Lennon adopted the principles of the advertising world in his anti-war campaign and Jeff Slate's conversation with biographer Philip Norman about how he came to change his view of Paul McCartney.

Also in this issue, Rip Rense makes the case for a "new" Threetles recording and Rick Glover assesses Macca's revamped road show. Plus, there are reviews of new books, broadcasts and recordings, including the controversial "Pure McCartney" collection, and all the latest news and reports from Paul and Ringo's new tours.

A sample issue costs $8 in the U.S. or $12 abroad. U.S. funds only. If you want the latest issue, be sure to specify #220. A year's subscription in the U.S. costs $34 for six issues.
