London '66–'67 is an EP and film of Pink Floyd music, containing two "lost" tracks—an extended version of "Interstellar Overdrive" and a previously unreleased track "Nick's Boogie". These tracks were originally recorded for Peter Lorrimer Whitehead's film Tonite Lets All Make Love in London in 1967,[2] and the former appeared in edited form on the soundtrack album.[2] Originally released in full on the 1990 See for Miles Records UK reissue of the soundtrack album, they are the earliest Pink Floyd recordings available commercially.[2]

The EP was originally issued in 1995, then reissued by Snapper Music (SMACD924X, 2005) on 13 September 2005, as a remastered CD and a DVD featuring the entire film plus excerpts from the original movie. The EP is considered an early example of the jazz fusion genre, incorporating jazz-influenced improvisation to their psychedelic compositions.
