In previous posts, I have discussed the famous splice exactly 60 seconds in to "Strawberry Fields Forever". But this splice isn't the only major edit in the song. Careful observation shows the addition of an extra chorus in the released version.
The first half of the released edit uses the introduction, first chorus, and first verse of Take 7, followed by a second chorus, during which the splice occurs. But Take 7 does not use a chorus immediately following the first verse. The first seven words of either the second or final chorus (they're practically identical so it makes no appreciable difference which of the two - but it is clearly one of the two) are inserted before the splice to Take 26.
This notion is much more easily understood visually than aurally, and for that reason I have included a graphic below (click to enlarge).
In this graphic, the blue rectangles shows what was used from Take 7, while the red shows what was used from Take 26. But notice that the chorus following verse 1 in the released version does not exist in Take 7 (where instead verse 2 follows verse 1). The blue parentheses, then, illustrate that missing link.
