It is incomprehensible that the double A-side single of Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane failed to reach #1 in the UK. Even more disturbing is the fact that the single stalled at #2 in the UK because it was blocked from the top spot by Engelbert Humperdinck’s Release Me. Unbelievable!
It was a little better in the U.S. Penny Lane reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 but Strawberry Fields Forever never climbed higher than #8. Once again … Unbelievable!
