Review by frenchie
3 stars these 2 tracks are actually included on the album "Tonight, Lets All Make Love in London". 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.

Review by Cluster One
2 stars This EP contains the first known live recordings of PINK FLOYD. 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). The two tunes are also found on the "Tonight Let's All Make Love in London" Original Soundtrack. A 'special collector's edition' of this "London Live 66-67" CD was also released with an accompanying CD-ROM video of PINK FLOYD's performance. (I actually saw the imported version of this CD/CD-ROM initially priced at 85$ Cdn when first released!) So as you see, many different formats are available of these somewhat rare recordings.

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 its way to the 11 minute mark. If you like the song 'A Saucerful of Secrets' than this might be for you.

The special edition (released in 1995, not 1999) cardboard cd case for "London Live 66-67" is quite exquisite. It has some contemporary still pics of Syd from the recording session, as well as the other 'cast members' of the "Tonite..." Movie.

For collectors and diehard FLOYD/BARRETT fans only! 2/5 stars

2 stars Interstellar Boogie!

Not really much to say about it, this is an EP which only shows a couple of their early psychedelic and longer tracks, two of the finest compositions made in the Barrett era, we can clearly notice it (of course if we know the band), because for those who doesn't know Pink Floyd, they would probably think this could be any other band but Floyd.

So what we have here is "Interstellar Overdrive" which is a clear example of their psychedelic roots, and which we can find inside The Piper of the Gates of Dawn, but this EP contains a live version of the song, whose time duration is even longer, so the trip will last more. This is an excellent song but actually you would not think that it is Pibk Floyd if you are only familiar with works like Darkside of the Moon or Wish You Were Here, the sound is completely different, instrumental song led by psychedelic guitars and some spacey synth sound here and there, the music might be repetitive but their value lies in those repetitions, though you might love or hate the song, feel bored or excited, it's your call.

Nick's Boogie as the name suggests, it's fouces on drums so Nick Mason's work here is remarkable, it is his song, his music, his sound, of course he makes this HIS song. And practically the style is similar to the first song, it is like a jamming with psychedelic tendencies which is growin and progressin through the minutes, the intensity also increases and decreases, you know like a carrousel. It is full of strange noises mainly created by guitars, though bass and keys also play a nice role on it, but as i pointed out firstly, the leadership is taken by the drums.

So there you have a couple of early Pink Floyd songs, both of them over ten minutes, so if you want to know thei earlier stuff and also played live, you can get this EP, i like it, it is good, but i do not play it frequently and i honestly would not recommend it, so only if you are a PF fan, then you should get it without a doubt.

My final grade: 2 stars.

Enjoy it!

1 stars This is the soundtrack to the DVD of the same name, and deserve an equal review. The music is very psychedelic - too much so for my enjoyment. There is very little direction or structure. The music is at times interesting, but mainly bland and simply irritating. It grows very repetitive. And, on t ... (read more)

4 stars This album is one of the least popular or recognized Pink Floyd albums. I bought it a long time when I had no idea what kind of music Pink Floyd played. Despite the popular belief, this is not a live album so the sound quality is awesome. Anyways, on to the songs: 01. Interstellar Overdrive (1 ... (read more)
