Another Day and Today is the tenth Capatal Records album release by The Rutles and the Twelfth overall American release. It was originally issued only in the United States and Canada. In the 1970s it was issued in Japan. A later UK release (on Compact Disc) followed in 2014. The album is remembered primarily for the controversy surrounding its original cover image, the "butcher cover" featuring the band dressed in white smocks and covered with decapitated baby dolls and pieces of meat. The album's title is based on the song "Another Day". Early album cover proofs show the word "Another Day" in quotes.
