Strawberry Fields Forver - take 25 and Editing

On December 08 1966, it was decided that the song needed to go into another direction - most likely from it's composer's point of view and so a score was written by George Martin for brass and strings. The song was sped up and various percussion instruments added as well by Ringo and the rest of the band. The editing of takes 15 and take 24 were completed on this occasion including the "cranberry sauce" quote used at the end by John who also tells Ringo to "calm down" on the drums.
Some of this recording can be heard on the commercial Apple 2-CD/3-LP "Anthology 2" set. I've included the take 25 link as well.
