Pink Floyd, Mick Jagger, Andrew Loog Oldham and other stalwarts of the British 1960s pop-art explosion are featured in the soundtrack to Peter Whitehead’s movie Tonite Let’s All Make Love In London, which is to be re-released this week.
The first 1000 copies of the heavyweight audiophile vinyl edition will be pressed in pink, with gatefold CD and digital editions also available for pre-order.
Director Whitehead described his 1967 work as a “pop concerto for film,” and it was delivered in six movements entitled Loss Of The British Empire, Dollygirls, Protest, It’s All Pop Music, Movie Stars and Painting Pop. The soundtrack first appeared the following year, but the complete original version, now remastered, has been out of print since then.
Pink Floyd’s version of Interstellar Overdrive, which appears in three sections, precedes the ten-minute version that was recorded for debut album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn. The semi-improvisational piece is regarded as one of the earliest examples of its kind.
The soundtrack also features music from the Small Faces, Chris Farlowe and others, plus interviews with Jagger, Oldham, Michael Caine, David Hockney, Julie Christie and more.
Former Floyd leader Roger Waters recently commenced a US tourin support of latest solo album Us + Them.
