This DVD is rubbish and who ever buys it or rents it will be very disappointed (this is being polite)
On the cover it states that there are rare performances from the classic late 60s this is untrue and consists of mainly interviews which are not from any Pink Floyd members.
There are no vocal performances.

There seems to be a lot of new product made available purely to cash in on the name of "Pink Floyd". This DVD is one such item. There are two performances - "Nick's Boogie" for 11 minutes (this being not much more than a jam session), and "Interstellar Overdrive" for 16 minutes. Both are available from other sources so are not exactly exclusive. The rest of the DVD consists of 3-4 minute soundbites from half a dozen random 60's icons (Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, Julie Christie etc.) that make no reference to Pink Floyd whatsoever - they are random comments from 60's interviews.
This DVD will only be of value to avid "collectionists" - it should be avoided by anyone expecting further insights into Pink Floyd's career.

Pink Floyd - London 1966-1967 is exactly as purported, remembered and envisaged. Anyone familiar with the group's work in the late 60's can tell you it was more about experimentation and instrumentation (in deference to Arnold Layne & Emily). Knowing this may help the listener to expect L-O-N-G and at times atonal musical ambling.
This is not a disc of the mid-late '70s Pink Floyd of Roger Waters lyricism. If one expects that they will be disappointed, but if this is of your era (or interest), you'll be transported back to time of mysticism and great promise during the Summer of Love. Needless to say, I loved it!

If you are a casual fan of Pink Floyd then this DVD is probably not for you. You would do better watehing the new PULSE DVD which is to be released on 5th Nov 2005. This DVD, however, features some great rare footage in prosting quality but is more suited to slightly obsessed fans! Casual fans stear clear but everyone else enjoy! 8-)

This offering showcases two long tracks from the Syd Barrett era of Pink Floyd before the recording of the band's debut album `Piper at the Gates of Dawn.' These two pieces were previously released on the complete-soundtrack album of Peter Lorrimer Whitehead's film about the 1960s psychedelic scene `Let's all make Love in London' and then on an EP in 1995, and released again in 2005.

`Interstellar Overdrive' and `Nick's Boogie' resemble the performances on the live-on-stage half of the band's later `Ummagumma' album from 1969; in fact you can hear some of the themes in `A Saucerful of Secrets' emerging in `Nick's Boogie'.

The DVD is a film about London in the `psychedelic era' with the music as a back-drop, plus interviews with Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, David Hockney and Julie Christie talking about the then-contemporary scene. Peter Whitehead also talks about his film project featuring Floyd's music, at the time the cutting edge of psychedelia whose style was influenced by free-form jazz of the early fusion period.

Although these are the first-ever commercial recordings by Pink Floyd, this is not the best place to start if you're new to the band. `Piper at the Gates of Dawn' recorded shortly afterwards is a more varied, melodious and listenable album, and better produced, and the 1970s-era with Dave Gilmour replacing Barrett is where their most timeless and enduring work may be found. `London 66-67' is a great snapshot of London in the 1960s, but essential only for hardcore Barrett-era Floyd fans.

Yes, Pink Floyd may just be cashing in on another DVD, but I think it is very interesting footage, you get an insight into the world of the British LSD scence 1966/67 in clubs such as the UFO, where Pink Floyd are at their young age playing their most far out stuff in their whole career. It is very full-on, but I like it.

Lubbly jubbly - as one who followed the Floyd in their early Pwis Gardens hall days this is right up my street. A bit short though

When I brought this DVD I was expecting a live set concert not a short film with 2 songs! Don't get me wrong both songs are brillaint with the brillaince of Syd Barrett with Pink Floyd but still Pink Floyd were always different then others (example: The Wall) but they are still the greatest band ever!
