Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: RE: Banned Music?
I vaguely recall that collectors here refer to the "Banned Beatles Album." One of their early(?) albums was denied a US import permit, apparently due to the "suggestive" album picture, and a different picture was used on the "legal" US version.

Supposedly, a few early imports were the original with a "pasted over" cover, with new jackets eventually being made.

So far as I know, none of the songs had to be "sanitized" for our censors ... but there may have also been a re-cut.
