You can see it here:

along with the replacement cover. It's George, not Ringo, that has the doll's head on his hand, but it doesn't look to me that it's supposed to be on the "offendsive finger". Keep scrolling, and you'll see a close-up with false teeth on Paul's arm.

I actually own this LP. It had the "replacement cover" on it, but friends of mine and I steamed this off to reveal the "butcher cover" underneath.

nancyjo, was your posting in answer to a question posted elsewhere?

I have a copy of this cover on some sort of Beatles EP at home. I don't think it was any official release.

cd - it came up on the worst album cover thread.

ws - it has been used on a number of Beatle bootlegs, both record and CD.
