This explains in surprising detail why Strawberry Fields Forever has that weird left/right dichotomy on the tape. It's basically because they were using four-track recorders for a massive number (for the time) of tracks, and each track was either left, right, or center specifically.

He explains it better and in way more detail, of course.

Some people have *way* too much time on their hands :-)
