    The History Of Strawberry Fields(The Beatles)

    This is a three piece video of how Strawberry Fields Forever evolved with pictures and studio recordings of some of the twenty-six takes.

    Strawberry Fields was a Salvation Army in Lennon's past. Penny Lane was McCartney's nostalgic tune. Both were to be on Sgt Peppers but George Martin pulled them.

    Part two and three are in the list to the right.

    Nope, got that wrong.

    Penny Lane was an old flame of Lennon's brother's son's uncle's father. And Strawberry Fields was McCartney's place of choice to hide his millions from his wifes girlfriends sister's aunt's mother's grandmother.

    Really though, interesting facts thanks for posting!

    Rick Steves was doing a tour of Liverpool and took the Beatles tour. He showed many of the points of origin regarding the lyrics of Penny Lane. They are still there! Very fun show to watch.

    Back in my hippie days we were at Point Grenville which is on the Quinault reservation and the pacific ocean. I dropped acid and climbed up to the top of the bluff that over looked the ocean. When I got to the top the whole area was full of ripe wild strawberries. I just sat there and ate strawberries and thought about that song. I had found it!
