I was nine and my Dad wouldn't let me play it on our Magnavox console system. I guess I can understand it now. That was the nicest possession we had. I remember him betting me two bucks that rock and roll wouldn't last two years. He never paid off, the welcher.
Dear God I loved my Pop. 
Later in life he was fond of The Bee Gees. and ABBA but I couldn't get him to warm to irony. Lol

There have been a long string of European trans-national cooperative ventures beginning at the end of WW2, but the EU as a political, currency-issuing, and regulatory body started with Maastricht.

All of which is in Wikipedia, btw.

I don't know if any of the previous treaties are void with the UK now.
 
The reason 1972 was fresh in my memory because I heard a story on BBC radio with a British minister/parliamentarian saying something about the "European Communities Act of 1972" and the UK later entering the EEC (1973) as being the beginnings of the UK's "partnership" with the the rest of Europe.
