The Beatles filming a promo for their double A-side, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and ‘Penny Lane’ in Kent, U.K. With the band’s timeline so firmly established in the minds of millions of Beatles fans, we know now that John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr were getting more experimental in the studio as they began to create what would become Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. These short films helped prepare audiences for ‘Pepper’ and rock’s embrace of psychedelia, both visual and aural. The non-narrative clips changed how bands would promote their music, leading – eventually – to the birth of the music video. Later in 1967, the Beatles would return to Kent to film scenes for ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ – a film project more infamous than the band’s celebrated ‘Penny Lane’ and ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’e footage.
