Record Store Day USA
THE BEATLES
"Strawberry Fields Forever"

DETAILS
Event: RECORD STORE DAY 2017
Release Date: 4/22/2017
Format: 7" Vinyl
Label: Apple Corp./Capitol Records
Quantity: 7000
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

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.

For UK and Ireland
Beatles, The - Penny Lane/ Strawberry Fields Forever
Release Date: 22 Apr 2017
Format: 7"
Label: UMC
More Info:
This single in replica original picture sleeve, marks the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest singles of The Beatles' career and indeed of all time.
The music features new stereo mixes first featured on 1+ in 2015.

You should check that your local shop is going to stock a particular item as not all shops will be able to carry all 400+ releases. Please also be aware that even if your RSD store is stocking the release they are not allowed to reserve it for you as all RSD releases are strictly first come first served on the day.

It does not give the quantity or the cost. Will the vinyl singles chart list it as a double A side or as single tracks?

The original 1967 release was limited to 25,000 picture sleeve copies. I have one of them. :D

Brian05 posts the evidence Edu won't or can't. So perhaps one could make a case for both dates being correct.

Officially Thursday 1st June, unofficially in limited amounts a week previous in some areas.
I have a figure of 16,000 the first week and 225,000 sales (shipments) to Friday 9th June.

And for fun - FA Cup Final Spurs 2, Chelsea 1.

From DISC magazine dated Saturday May 27th but came out on the Thursday.

Image

So a rush release date of Friday 26th May 1967. Hence the 50th anniversary edition is coming out exactly 50 years later - "This title will be released on May 26, 2017."
Also in DISC dated 10/6/1967 they reported on the Jimi Hendrix concert on Sunday 4th June playing his version of Sgt. Pepper. So in reality he had over a week to rehearse it despite what Macca said.

The Beatles 1+ DVD box set is now £16.99 on Amazon, and is no. 21 on their top 100 chart. This is the lowest price I have seen. Still being marketed as Limited Edition.
