Quite good, in fact. But viewers should be aware this is not the "Tonite Let's All Make Love In London" movie. It is a combination of filmed portions from that movie, with complete uncut versions of The Pink Floyd performing, "Interstellar Overdrive" and "Nick's Boogie," both from the movie's sessions, and a second audio disc with remastered versions of both tunes. The DVD includes interviews with Mick Jagger, Michael Caine and others, possibly from the original film (I haven't seen it) and Allen Ginsberg reading his poem whose title the movie bears. The CD has about an EP's worth of material, and the DVD lasts long enough to make you feel you've watched something. Both tracks are unique, that is; not album tracks, even though as every Pink Floyd fan knows, a plethora of releases of these tunes are available. The advantages of having this are the DVD and the superior sound.
If you're not sure if this version is the two disc edition, try entering "Pink Floyd 1966" in Amazon's search box. That will bring up specifically the two disc set. I can't tell whether this edition includes the audio-only disc, so I must conclude it does not. You could also write the seller and ask.
This video is an excellent collector's item, and it is definitely a "relic". On this tape, Pink Floyd psychedelically jams, performing the music of "Intersteller Overdrive" and "Nick's Boogie".
This is The Pink Floyd, prior to their first record contract, in a studio, in late 1966. This is the band that blew the Beatles and the Yardbirds away at London unground clubs like Roundhouse, before the media attention, before the Games For May, before their first hit single. This is the unedited footage originally released in shorter length on the 1968 Documentary Film "Tonite, Let's Make Love In London." Bootleg sound recordings of this circulated for several years in the mid 1980's before the film saw release on videotape in the late 1980's, the orginal unedited footage started quasi-legitimate release shortly thereafter. This material has been subsequently released in a myriad of different editions and formats since then.
It is amazing that we even have this; so much of Syd Barrett's original incarnation of The Pink Floyd was undocumented, unrecorded, that a handful of radio and TV appearances (that were often lip-synched) in 1967 and a few alternate or previously unreleased studio tracks (a few of which were legitimately released 2 years ago on the "Piper At The Gates 40th Anniversary Edition") are about all that survive to document the original Pink Floyd phenomena. (Find the rest of them through bit-torrent websites on fan-made and remastered compilations like "Have You Got It Yet" Vols. i & 2, and "What Syd Wants.Read more ›
