"As soon as we could hear the Salvation Army band starting, John would jump up and down shouting, 'Mimi, come on, we're going to be late!'" recalls Lennon's aunt as she reveals the inspiration for this single - Lennon's memories of the Salvation Army house named Strawberry Field across the yard from where he played as a child.
I usually don’t use records that someone wrote their name on, but this one seemed really sweet by "Eileen." A deconstructed lucite bracelet provides the pieces with the floating charcoal colored squares that compliment the angular cutouts on the marigold colored wood frame. A vintage heart shaped Lennon button accents the 45, along with a gold strawberry shaped pin, upon which is mounted a large crystal teardrop from an old chandelier; other accents include a little psychedelia, a peace sign, and some abstract art renderings reminiscent of Lennon's own drawings; they all combine to escort you through a little tiny window of what was a larger than life talent. Wall mount or table stand, 9 x 11 inches; slight wear on outer label, all other components in excellent condition.
Although fans loved it and those in the industry called it game changing pop music when it was released in 1967, Lennon later expressed dissatisfaction with the final version of this song, and blamed Paul for "subconsciously sabotaging" the recording. Oh well...
