THE MOST AMAZING BEATLES ALBUM IN THE WORLD:
THE CANADIAN BUTCHER COVER
Only two butcher covers from Canada are known to exist. The one here
was the very first ever found. When it first appeared, many
"expert" Beatles dealers scoffed and insisted it could not
be real. They don't say that anymore. Several months after this cover
appeared, Paul White, the man who was in charge of Capitol of Canada
in the 1960s sold his only copy to a dealer who then turned around and
sold it to another collector. A photo of that one along with an
explanatory letter from Paul White appears in Book 2 of The Beatles
Story on Capitol Records by Bruce Spizer.
Looks pretty much like the US one with a couple of differences.
First, the cover slick is laminated with a thin plastic. Second, the
words LITHO IN CANADA (see detail) appear along the front lower right
edge. Also, the back cover pictures the first three Canadian rather
than the US Beatles albums.
Truth is stranger than fiction sometimes, and the full story behind
this one is nothing short of amazing. Watch these pages for further
