1965 New Musical Express poll-winners concert, formerly edited to remove nearly all but the performances (tickets probably cost around L5)...but the link had to be replaced, so the timings below are useless, but the performance order remains. Sadly, you do get to suffer Jimmy Savile in the unedited form, who is arguably even harder to take than Freddie and the Dreamers.
