London 1966 / 1967 = LP / CD = (LP)
A limited edition on both vinyl and CD. Features Pink Floyd performing Interstellar Overdrive (full length version), and Nick's Boogie. From the Tonite Let's All Make Love in London movie soundtrack. LP is a gatefold with a picture inner sleeve. CD is in a cardboard slip case. Although released as an archive curiosity over twenty years after they were originally recorded, these January 1967 items represent the group's very first work in the studio and are surprisingly stunning. They consist of only two cuts--extremely lengthy versions of both "Interstellar Overdrive" and the unreleased "Nick's Boogie", played live by the group using only their four instruments and NO overdubs. This makes both the style and sound markedly different from the first few singles and debut album, but represents the other side of the group's early period just as well. For a taste of what the group sounded like live in their earliest days--and a sampling of some of their best music *ever*, in any of their various eras including "Dark Side", "The Wall" etc.--"In London" is perfect. Both tracks represent extremely spacey experiments in electronic music which depend upon the psychic reaction of the players to each other. Syd Barrett is on fire, getting great effects out of his guitar with a cigarrette lighter and concentrating on heavily reverbed soundscapes rather than solos; at the end of "Nick's Boogie" he sounds like a UFO landing. Rick Wright's electric organ work has never sounded better, Waters' bass is typically aggressive, and Mason (esp on "Nick's Boogie") lays out the kind of tribal beat he became famous for on things like the live "Set The Controls". In January 1967 no one else in the rock world--in London, LA, San Francisco, or elsewhere--was laying down music *this* far-out and wildly experimental. It defies all commercial expectation but if you give it a chance, you'll wish that the group had recorded more stuff like this. Absolutely essential1
