Hot on the heels of the recent CD release, news has arrived at Brain Damage today that the long-awaited DVD of "Pink Floyd - London 1966-67" is finally getting a release.

It is a fascinating look at the early days of the band, featuring the classic line-up of Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Rick Wright.

Shot by Peter Whitehead, the film features full length and extremely rare performances from the band's recording session at Sound Techniques, London, in 1967, and also has footage of the now legendary 14 Hour Technicolor Dream Extravaganza gig in April 1967 at Alexandra Palace. Additional footage captures "swinging sixties" London plus interviews with Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, David Hockney and Julie Christie.

The footage from Alexandra Palace includes Yoko Ono's performance art and a Sgt. Pepper-era John Lennon taking in the festivities. (John and Yoko had not then met.) The Floyd's performance at this show is not included, though.

Attempts were made a couple of years ago to release this on DVD, but there were problems that stopped this happening. It's great news that these problems have now been overcome; it is bound to be a popular release.

The DVD will be available from September 12th in the UK and Europe, and October 4th in the US. The special US edition will also include a bonus audio CD featuring Nick’s Boogie (11:50) and Interstellar Overdrive (16:46), as heard on the recent Pucka Music release. Advance orders are already being taken through our special links at Amazon UK, and Amazon Germany. We should have ordering details for other countries shortly.
