Eleanor Rigby Strings

Hi Geoff, Can you tell us about the string sound(s) on Eleanor Rigby?

I feel like it was one of the first rock songs with only strings and yet pretty dry close miced strings as well. Is that a correct assertion?

I'm curious, was that vibe something you and the production team thought about ahead of time? or was it just one of those things that happened naturally?

Lastly were the string tracks played live to a stereo track? or were there overdubs?

Thanks appreciate it.
