There was more work today on “Strawberry Fields Forever”: two more takes (5 and 6) which were then mixed down into a working version (take 7). In another era, this probably would have been it; the song would have been considered done and the band would have moved on to other things.

As it was, “Strawberry Fields” had considerable evolution to go through still, but recordings from today’s session would end up comprising the first minute of the final version — which you can hear here, fortunately enough, though the song is annoyingly truncated at the 1:22 mark.
