About

Limited to 7000 copies

From Record Store Day:

For Record Store Day 2017, an exclusive, limited edition 7″ single of The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Penny Lane”, among the first songs recorded during the Sgt. Pepper sessions, which begin in November 1966. Rather than being held for inclusion on the album, the two songs were released as a double A-sided single in February 1967. Amidst intense media speculation about the band’s next move, the single bridged what was then considered a long gap between the Revolver album, released in August 1966, and Sgt. Pepper, which followed ten months later.
