I remember Yesterday

It was the 1970s.

Nobody ever mentioned The Beatles.

There was also an album called Abbey Road.

The Beatles visited New Zealand in 1964. I didn’t know they existed, but a lot of other people did.

The Beatles just didn’t seem to exist.

It was our first encounter with The Beatles’ amazing story.
