    ...you would see the Beatles in butcher's smocks, draped with cuts of meat and baby doll parts.

    And it is properly called 'the butcher's jacket.'

    No "dead babies" even if the effect sort of, kind of, loosely conveyed that imagery.

    Just sayin'....

      As you look at the picture, you have John on the left, with a slab of meat in his lap and on his right shoulder, and a headless baby on his left shoulder, resting on Paul's right shoulder.  The baby's head is in Paul's lap .... thus my reference to "dead babies" ... I could go on, but hope I have quelled your doubt and cynicism -- at least on this topic.

      And interesting story as to how I got it.  After the initial brouhaha about the cover, they changed to whatever it became (I think them sitting on trunks and stuff?) .... BUT, before they started sending out truly redone albums, they just pasted the new cover over the old one.  .... and that is what I got.  I was able to carefully peel away the "G" rated cover and find the butchers smocks, meat slabs and dead baby (dolls).  The cover is pretty beat up, and I keep thinking I should mount and frame it .... and I guess I will one of these days....

      The Elephant. The Rider. The Path. Figure those out and change will come.
