30 minutes in length and comprising of only two "songs", 'The Pink Floyd - London 66-67' all too briefly captures the untamed youth of the band in it's original professional incarnation. Even more so, it serves as a kind of visual time capsule from an era long dead.
Visually, this production starts off wonderfully as you are bombarded with a blizzard of hellishly blurred images. Mostly focusing on the band's first-ever recording session at Sound Techniques on January 11-12 1967, during which the band are seen banging out a super-extended take of "Interstellar Overdrive" and a track called "Nick's Boogie" (which is musically the dullard brother of "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun", 'In London 66-67' also features scores of cut-aways to other happenings and locations (and the people attending them), a lot of this footage looks like cutting-room floor out-takes with plenty of pretty colors, instilling the feeling in the viewer of being hopped up on the same happy pills as Syd Barrett.
Even cooler than the recording studio bits is the live footage shown during "Interstellar Overdrive," as director Peter Whitehead splices in some chaotic, but undeniably impressive-looking live shots from the band's UFO residency. The fast-paced cuts and reasonably psychedelic-tinged visuals do a pretty fair job of preserving the seemingly carefree hedonism of the times -- everywhere you look, there are lights of different sizes and colors flashing away, while loads of people who must have been completely out of their skulls on hallucinogenics leap about the place, twirl their arms in a way you only see at techno clubs and Phish concerts, and otherwise make complete idiots of themselves. A MUST HAVE FOR THE PINK FLOYD DIE HARDS
