From the original uploader

There is very little to be found online about this show other than artwork and a setlist that is wrong on I’ve corrected the setlist below.

The quality is not great but its listenable. This is a show that will be beneficial to completists and those that want to hear one of the very rare recordings of You Don’t Pull No Punches, but you Don’t Push the River from the 70’s. VERY HARD TO FIND!!!

hope you enjoy! 🙂

Liner notes:
The New Musical Express, the British music weekly with the largest circulation, staged a series of concerts in the sixties featuring artists who topped their popularity polls. The concerts, known as ‘The Poll Winners’ Concerts’, were all held in Wembley. This two CD set documents the second to last Poll Winner Concert held on April 11, 1965 at Wembley Stadium. An edited version of this concert was screened on ABC TV and networked throughout the UK on April 18 of that year. This set was compiled from the soundtrack of the unedited master.

Notes from David Chance:
The back of the package says “The cream of British music as chosen by the readers of The New Musical Express presented in concert on April 11, 1965 at Wembley Stadium.”

The cover has a small photograph of The Beatles performing at this concert. The liner has stock photos of The Rolling Stones, Donovan, The Animals, The Kinks, and Them. This is the first appearance of a live recording by Them (their first BBC radio studio session was in March 1965 — see Bluesology, which would technically be the first “live” recordings, albeit from the studio…this is in front of a concert audience). As per the liner notes, this is a soundboard-quality recording.

Them are introduced by Jimmy Savile, who says (jokingly) that they have “just finished a tour with the Lutten (sp?) Girls Choir and will have to leave the country very, very shortly.” The band takes a moment to soundcheck and then launches into “Here Comes The Night”. The freshness of the song to the band may, perhaps, be heard when, after the first chorus, Van begins the first verse a moment too soon, quickly catches himself, begins again and carries the song to it’s finish wonderfully.

There are the immediate strains of “Turn On Your Love Light”, with Van making some “noises” and tearing into the song. As the tempo speeds up, Alan Henderson (?) begins stirring the audience by urging them to join along. The song then meanders in a psychedlic blues groove for a moment before it picks up tempo again and works out to a close. Jimmy Savile exits Them with a humorous comment on the brevity of the band’s name (“pretty soon we’ll have bands like ‘A’, and ‘The'”).

From the Original Uploader:
As we had a nice BBQ last Friday, with a glass (or two) of beer and wine, we listened to this very good compilation,
which has never left our car after getting it. So better make an extra copy! 😉
This compilation is made by Alan E.
See the artwork on John Donne to read his story: The songs on these discs are the songs that ëlift me right upí.
We donít know from which shows these tracks are, would be great if anyone can help with that.

B. en G.

From Mat: This is a really nice compilations, unfortunately the original uploader didn’t include any source info at all. If anyone can figure out where these songs come from please let me know. And of course if any of this is officially released please let me know that too.
