The first time I heard The Beatles—Abbey Road was in Healdsburg, California in July 1989. The album still holds a special place in my musical heart.

This is brilliant. A one-take live performance of side two of Abbey Road by The Beatles tribute act The Fab Faux.

The Fab Faux play Abbey Road

The first time I visited California was in the summer of 1989.  I’d just left high school, I was fresh from a National Youth Choir of Great Britain summer course and concert at the Festival Hall, and I was en route to the University of St Andrews to begin a degree in theology.

I stayed with my mum’s cousin Charlotte in Healdsburg, we toured the length and breadth of California, as far south as San Juan Capistrano and as far north as Medford in Oregon.

It was in Healdsburg, though, that I first heard The Beatles Abbey Road album.  I love that album; I love this live performance of the second side of Abbey Road by The Fab Faux.  Enjoy!
