2 stars This EP contains the first known recordings of PINK FLOYD and the two songs were also released under the title '"London '66-'67". They are taken from Peter Whitehead's short motion picture "Tonight Let's All Make Love in London" (although out-of-print it still available on Laser Disc, and VHS formats). A 'special collector's edition' of this CD was also released with an accompanying CD-ROM of PINK FLOYD's performance. So as you see, many different formats are available of these somewhat rare recordings. Some versions include interviews with: Mick Jagger, Lee Marvin, David Hockney and Michael Caine (all present for the event), as well as music from THE SMALL FACES.

As for the songs themselves, both are actually quite unique in their own way. The live version of 'Interstellar Overdrive' is far superior (and much longer) to the "Piper at the Gates of Dawn" offering. Syd Barrett's improvisational guitar work is appreciated here, and is definitely more representative of what the PINK FLOYD sounded like live early on in their psychadelic career.

Very uncharacteristically, Nick Mason takes centre stage for the only known version of the percussive 'Nick's Boogie', a wandering cacophony of a song. Although sounding a bit at times like a scary-movie soundtrack, this song has its moments, if you can stay focused as it noodles it way to the 11 minute mark. If you like the song 'A Saucerful of Secrets' than this might be for you.

For collectors and diehard PINK FLOYD/SYD BARRETT fans only! One and a half stars out of five, rounded up to 2/5 for rating purposes.
