3 stars 3.5 stars really!!!

This represents Floyd at their Psychadelic prime where the swinging London was squeezing themselves into a sardine can just to get a glimpse of those madmen Floyd in selected clubs such as UFO or the Marquee. For this one, this was a live event somewhat linked to the legendary Fourteen Hour Technicolor Dream spree/event (or something resembling that name). Actually, the Cd is correct but get the video so you get the full light show and you get a glimpse of the attendance among whom Lennon and his new Japanese muse. Floyd is doing exactly what got them on the map before Barrett started writing these twee British psych hits: they're doing formidable jams and improvising. Again, it's not that Floyd is a virtuoso band, but their detractors are wrong on one count: they had sufficient musical abilities to be credible to do lengthy numbers that improvised and set the London nights on fire with their lightshows (not yet fully developed at this point). The released video takes exactly the same length as the Cd but I don't know if this got released on DVD legitimately, yet.

3 stars these 2 tracks are actually included on the album "london '66-'67". This is good stuff even though it is blatently lacking in material, it is only an EP and is only meant to show off some rare floyd stuff. This is a good, but not essential listen. I recommend this to completionists but otherwise leave it as one of the last pink floyd records you buy.

Even though there are only two instrumentals, it is still miles better than "the final cut" and some of the albums after it. The extended version of interstellar overdrive features parts of other piper songs such as "Take up thy stethoscope and walk".

"Nicks Boogie" can be a stretch to listen to but it is worth a listen. Good for an EP and for completionists only is what this record is meant to be and it exceeds in that perfectly.

2 stars I unearthed this relic by accident, and from an unexpected source: "The Progressive Rock Files", by Jerry Lucky (4th edition, 1998), which I stumbled upon while browsing at my local library. The book itself is a decent but flawed introduction to Prog Rock, unlikely to appeal to anyone not already well acquainted with the music, with Lucky presenting himself as a Prog Rock apologist for whom the genre can do no wrong. The bulk of the book - almost 150 pages - is devoted to a comprehensive A to Z listing of Progressive bands...without anything remotely approaching a critical opinion of any of them.

But the surprise was the CD included with the book: almost 30 minutes of rare live Pink Floyd music, taken (as I was later to learn - Lucky's book didn't provide any clues) from the soundtrack of what must have once been a very "happening" movie.

As you can no doubt tell from the groovy title, it's a flashback to swinging London in its psychedelic heyday, a cannabis scented time capsule from when Pink Floyd was still THE PINK FLOYD, led by the original Piper at the Gates of Dawn himself: Syd Barrett. The music, a pair of extended, totally improvised jam sessions, is light years away from the band's later, immaculately crafted studio epics, providing a rare and valuable glimpse of what the original (and, some would insist, best) Floyd sounded like on stage. Listening, you can practically see the liquid light show.

The highlight of the disc is the almost 17-minute rendition of "Interstellar Overdrive", played at a slightly more breathless pace than the "Piper" version, with Roger Waters and Nick Mason locked for most of its length into a driving, one-chord groove under Richard Wright's noodling Farfisa organ chords and arpeggios. Barrett's guitar playing, not unlike his later mental state, is somewhere in deep space, but the sheer inventiveness of his technique (or lack thereof) is still invigorating to hear.

The 12-minute "Nick's Boogie" is more of the same, with less of a discernable melody but lots of primitive reverb and echo effects, over another solid bedrock of rhythm, in this instance Nick Mason's tribal-sounding toms. It's a quintessential late '60s freak out, and a crude but clear precursor to the title track of the group's upcoming "Saucerful of Secrets".

Both live tracks make their point within four or five minutes and then, like a lot of experimental rock at the time, meander pleasantly along with no real sense of direction, but wasn't that the true meaning of it all? Free expression, breaking the bourgeois shackles of time, and so forth? The music must have once sounded dangerously radical, but now seems almost disarmingly innocent. Hearing it, I was reminded of a recent screening of the film "Easy Rider", a similar '60s trip, in more ways than one.

Collector's note: there are also a couple of interviews to round out the disc (at least the disc I heard), neither with any connection to the band or their music. Actor Lee Marvin offers his opinion on mini-skirts ("I don't think girls vary that much in their physical appearance", he says, setting a new benchmark for chauvinism), and artist David Hockney compares working conditions in London and California. Together, it's five minutes of pointless filler on a still criminally short compact disc

PROG REVIEWER
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.

2 stars This is psychedelia. This represents the Barret-era.This is also the first ever recordings from Pink Floyd. The Two songs are quite enjoyable to listen to, especially Interstellar Overdrive. Nick's Boogie is also good, but at time get stretchy. You will get the feel of their 1966-1967 Club gigs in London. At the time they had an acid-addicted cult following through most of their gigs. 2.5/5

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars For me the track "Interstellar overdrive" is one of the highights of the Sixties underground scene, what a mindblowing rendition from Pink Floyd, the band pushes themselves to their limits! The theme in the first and final part is so compelling, they upgrade R&R to art with their controlled chaos! The propulsive bass riffs from Waters and the inventive drums from Mason are great, the organ waves from Wright are splendid (what a psychedelic colouring) but the focus is on the guitarplay from Syd Barrett. You don't have to be a guitarist to notice that his technique is not very high standard but Syd knew how to incorporate different styles into a captivating and very innovative sound. Halfway "Interstellar overdrive" his sound seemed to have lost control but then he builds up the tension with a hypnotizing riff and in the end it all explodes into a wonderful blend of psychedelia and rock and roll, this is The Pink Floyd at their pinnacle!

HISTORICAL PROG!!

3 stars "Tonite, let`s all make love in London" is the titled of a short film in late 60`s , and for that film this couple of songs were included.

This are strictly instrumental songs, making reference of psychedelia era , both song are totally crazy but with a very special and excellent sound, as we know, Syd Barrett was the leader in early Pink Floyd works, so lots of his madness were placed in this songs, with extraordinary piano and keyboard sound, and a unique style of psychedelic guitar, both songs are over 10 minutes , the lenght of this album is almost 30 minutes, something like Goblin`s Proffondo Rosso ( for example), so for that fact this album is not a single anymore, this is an EP i think.

"Interestellar Overdrive" is an extraordinary work of art, all Pink Floyd lovers should love it,besides it was maybe the first song that this band made, the sound is incredible, weird, lunatic, and great in every way. "Nick`s Boogie" was composed by Nick Mason, this is kind of an improvisation, another instrumental and weird song, with space sounds and insane guitars, not as extraordinary as the first track, but it is really good, maybe it could be a bit difficult to dig, so dont listen to it if you dont want to, listen to it onlye when you believe that this songs have something to appreciate about them, because they have lots of great things to appreciate.

So, im pretty sure that this album, EP,single whatever it is, could be only for collectors and fans, also is difficult to find in stores, this fact makes it a 2 stars album, but i think some people could like it despite dont being a Pink Floyd fan, so im going to give it 3 stars.

An acid and freaky sound!

3 stars Well with the release of this concert, Pink Floyd invented a new product. It's called acid of the ears! This is psychedelic music at its rawest and most hypnotic. Both of these song were recorded way before the Pink Floyd craze and hype, before Gilmour and Darkside, and before mainstream popularity. They were originally made for the short film of the same name as the album.

Okay now onto the album. Sound quality is the worst quality I think I have heard yet. "Interstellar Overdrive" is an awesome song, with powerful riffs and some mighty drumming from a younger, more amped up Nick Mason. It is much better than the "Piper" version, as it includes bits and pieces of other future compositions such as "Astronomy Domine". "Nick's Boogie" is a little too long in my opinion, as it gets very stretchy at times. However, it's an excellent example of how the Floyd played before their mainstream success.

So all in all, if you are looking for some good, live Floyd from their Barrett psychedelia days, this is a great pick-up, as long as you can deal with poor sound quality. If you are looking for the baroque, Roger Waters driven singles DO NOT look here for them.

2 stars "Soundtrack" of their video clip / film of the same name. It was recorded at the UFO club in London (at least you can see this in the video). This video was a promotional trailer for the "movie" from Peter Whitehead showing a trendy party in the London of the late mid-sixties.

These are pure psychedelic improv numbers. I guess that with the help of some substances, one can enter into this more easily, although it must have been quite an experience to see the Floyd live at that time. Figure out, more than forty years ago, they were producing music never heard before (by close or by far).

"Interstellar" starts as it ought to be. Strong keys from Rick and good rythm section for a bit over four minutes. Then the trip may start. Some weird guitar noises, some keys hits and a bit of cymbals. There you go. Once in a while, the band wakes up (so do you) and sounds interesting but these good moments usually do not last for long. Mason's drumming is very much in the style of "Set The Controls..." so this is quite premonitory of things to come. This is one of the reasons why this document is important.

Nick's boogie will feature the same classic drumming moments again during the initial phase of this track, before the jam started and lasts for about twelve minutes ... Since the Floyd did "Intestellar" in one take, this unreleased jam could benefit of some extra time to record it.

This is really for die-hard fans of the very early days of the Floyd. Sound is rather good for such an old recording (but that will be a trade mark of the Floyd, right) ?

Two stars for this document.

2 stars In my recent review of 'Piper' I said that the studio version of 'Interstellar Overdrive' is not as compelling as the live version on 'Ummagumma'. Silly me. I meant the live version featured on this retrospective EP. IO is, or course, not on 'Ummagumma.'

So here it is. No rules, no boundaries, just noise loosely gathered in by a few riffs and the semblance of song structure. These two songs are neither essential for the PINK FLOYD fan nor representative of their later sound, but they are fun to listen to occasionally. And, most of all, they speak of a time when music was squarely in the melting pot. PINK FLOYD - and popular music in general - could have become anything. These two recordings communicate a sense of that exploration, of that wonder.

2 stars This one is really hard to digest, even for a fan of extended psychedelic jamming like me. The sound quality is not the best, but nobody expected that anyway. This version of "Interstellar Overdrive" is monstrous, but not nearly as cohesive as we get used to; basically the whole piece is a set of - noodlings. It's very free improvisation and the musicianship is not very tight. Hm...I guess the band members were too stoned, and all the different soundscapes, pictures, musical phrases are exclusively communicating between the band members; there's not much "leaking" of ideas outside, for the audience. Therefore, it might be a bit boring. "Nick's Boogie" is even less articulate than "Interstellar Overdrive".

The band haven't found their sophistication yet. This is just a very rough blueprint of band's state of mind at the time, everything but musical. Therefore, it's only for true PINK FLOYD fans, or true fans of British psychedelia movement.

An extra star is added for a historical value.

1 stars This is the first ever recorded Floyd, and even the most faithful Floydian may have trouble enjoying it. There is absolutely no evidence that this is the same band that produced Dark Side of the Moon, or anything after. The two tracks were used as a soundtrack to a psychedelic film, released on DV ...

3 stars Outside London, people hated The Pink Floyd at that time. The Interstellar Overdrive was way to intence for the european audience. Even today, people underestimate the great art this instrumental stands for. The following track, Nick's Boogie isn't that good, and makes the disc quite booring f ... (read more)

2 stars Somewhat of a collectors item anyway, this is definitely for the diehards. The new edition that i purchased bills this as by "Pink Floyd and friends", but it's the "friends" who dominate the album and make it borderline unlistenable. The Nice, Mick Jagger, an early Moody Blues and poet Allan ... (read more)
