In early 1967, the Beatles released a groundbreaking single -- John Lennon's "Strawberry Fields Forever" backed by Paul McCartney's "Penny Lane." In its music, lyrics, arrangement, and subject matter, "Strawberry Fields Forever"/"Penny Lane" was a large step forward for the Beatles and for all of popular music.
In "A Trip Through Strawberry Fields", Scott explores the creation of these two masterpieces with special attention to the evolution of the songs from demos to final recordings. The presentation also includes an in-depth look at Sgt. Pepper's "A Day In The Life" -- one of the Beatles' most remarkable achievements.
