Pink Floyd - London 1966/1967

I LOVE Pink Floyd.  Early, Middle, Later,  I like everything they’ve ever done up until ‘The Wall’.  It was at that point that Roger Water’s became to Pink Floyd what Dick Cheney became to the Republican party.  Things kind of got hijacked...  I’ll save that for another rant.

Anyway, I saw this album and didn’t have it, so thought Why Not?!  I like early Pink Floyd.  These are apparently the very first two studio recordings of Pink Floyd, which were recorded for a film called ‘Tonight Let’s All Make Love In London’ by Peter Whitehead.  This album consists of two tracks:

Side A:  “Interstellar Overdrive”, at 16 minutes and 46 seconds.

Side B:  “Nick’s Boogie”, at 11 minutes and 50 seconds.

I’ve heard several different versions of “Interstellar Overdrive” over the years, but not THIS one. During several passages, I was anticipating an upcoming part, and was continually surprised that the part upcoming was NOT the one I was expecting.  I’m assuming this was a take that wasn’t used, but it’s a super nice performanc that could easily have made it on an album.

”Nick’s Boogie” is in much the same creative vein as “Interstellar Overdrive” but slightly more ‘out there’, kind of like a Grateful Dead space performance.

My pressing was top notch, and dead quite with the exception for a slight pressing flaw at the very end of side 2.  Both tracks are extremely well mastered, on white vinyl.  I can kind of see how QA could be a bit difficult with white vinyl.

This probably won’t be in heavy rotation at my place, but I’m glad to include it in my collection if only for the historical significance.

Super dope purveyors of all things audiophile.  They actually care more about your listening experience than they do about making a sale.  Solid gold in my book.  Talk to Kat if you can.  She's the Bomb-dot-com!
