Jewish Business News interview with Albert Maysles. Hilariously, they manage to spell his last name three different ways in the same article. [x-posted the the documentaries thread]

50 years ago today, the band played two 25-minute Carnegie Hall concerts (note the misspelling of "Carngie" at the bottom of the poster).

Thanks for the article mja. Never before had i made the connection between The Beatles and Tommy Roe who sang the Dizzy (which was bettered by Vic Reeves and The Wonder Stuff).
