That sure would ruin your day.Mark Lindsay, the talent in Paul Revere and the Raiders (who were red-hot in 1967, the best-selling rock group Columbia had ever had) was driving home when he heard the very end of Strawberry Fields on the radio, and the DJ saying it was the new single from the Beatles. So he detoured by a record shop, bought it, took it home and listened to it with his producer and roommate, Terry Melcher. When the song ended Lindsay said, “Now what the fuck are we gonna do?”
At the same time The Moody Blues released Days of Future Past, The Kinks had Waterloo Sunset and Dylan John Westly Harding. The Stones screwed up with Satanic Majesty’s trying to do something spaciest.
