Offered is an extremely rare issue of The Beatles "Yesterday"...And Today". This is the Red labels with the Purple target variation.

In May of 1971 Capitol Records began issuing albums on the newly designed Red label variation. The first two Beatles albums Capitol received pressing orders for were "Revolver" and "Yesterday"...And Today". Almost immediately the pressing of these two albums abruptly ended when Apple Records announced that they were going to re-issue all Beatles albums on their label. At that point there were an unknown number of "Revolver" pressed and probably only about 100 of Y&T pressed.  The actual pressing numbers for these two albums is still a mystery to this day!
What IS known is that in May of 1971 Capitol Records unintentionally created an extreme rarity by halting the pressing of "Yesterday"... And Today" in mere double digit numbers.
The first documented copy of this Y&T gem was discovered in 2006 and is listed in Frank Daniels and Perry Cox' Price Guide, published by Bruce Spizer. Amazingly,this happened 35 years after the pressing date!

How We Grade





Over ten years of grading nearly a million albums, Shuga Records has developed
a consistent - and conservative - method for objectively grading the condition of
everything we sell. All recordings are visually inspected under high-intensity lights,
using our customized grading system.


 

  New Sealed
  Mint (SS)

When someone says something's "Mint condition," this is what they're talking about. The album is sealed in its original packaging and has never been played.   Mint- (M-) This is the highest grade for records that have been played. The album is in excellent condition and shows no visible signs of wear or damage that will affect sound quality.   VG+ While not flawless, the condition is very good, showing only minimal signs of use. Any visible blemishes should have minimal affect on play quality, though light surface noise maybe present at very quiet portions or between tracks. This is a record that should satisfy all but the most strict of collectors. There may be slight ring or cover wear, or minor writing on the cover.   VG Vinyl may have scratches and/or other visual blemishes, but should play through without skipping or repeating. Light to moderate surface noise and/or crackle may be present, however not overly distracting. Covers may have moderate ring and/or edge wear, cut-outs / hole punches, or a moderate seam splits.   VG- and below Let's be honest: sound quality is low and the cover may be in very poor shape. We consider any item graded at or below VG- as a LOW GRADE item. We only sell albums rated VG- and above unless a record is so rare that its presence in the collection transcends the poor quality of the vinyl or cover.
