Limited Edition Raconteurs Album Includes Hidden Beatles Tribute

A special vinyl edition of The Raconteurs' new album Help Us Stranger contains a hidden tribute to The Beatles.

The lenticular sleeve, when removed, shows a spoof of the Fab Four's 1966 Yesterday and Today "butcher cover".

On the secret cover, the heads of Brendan Benson, Jack White, Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence seem to have been photoshopped onto John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr's bodies.

The Third Man logo sits in the corner where the Capitol branding sat in 1966, and the typography for the album title and track listing appears identical.

"Paul is my favorite Beatle," White told MTV in 2009. "He's been a big influence on me — especially the way that he sings. I heard a cover song they did early on called 'Hippy Hippy Shake' that Paul sang, and I loved how high he sang it."

He added, "My voice isn't comfortable in that higher range, but that song was a big influence on me trying to get my voice somewhere like that."
