Tonite Lets All Make Love in London is a soundtrack album released on LP in 1968, for the 1967 semi-documentary film made by Peter Whitehead about the "swinging London" scene of the sixties. The film is based around a series of psychedelic performances and interviews and features live performance by Pink Floyd, together with footage of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Mick Jagger, Vanessa Redgrave, Lee Marvin, Julie Christie, Allen Ginsberg, Eric Burdon, Michael Caine and many others attending one of the band's concerts.

In 1990 See For Miles Records released an expanded version of the soundtrack on CD under the title Tonite Let's All Make Love in London ...Plus (Catalog Number: SEEK 258). The album included all the tracks from Tonite Let's All Make Love in London, the only exception being "Interstellar Overdrive" which had only appeared in a 3.02 edited form on the original release and was now replaced by the previously unreleased 16:46 full-length version. Another long and previously unreleased instrumental track by Pink Floyd, the 11:50 "Nick's Boogie", was also included in this release, together with the interviews that appear in the film.

Other versions of this soundtrack have also been released. In 2001, Power House Records released a CD under the name, Pink Floyd & Friends – Interstellar Overdrive that included the full 16:49 "Interstellar Overdrive" and "Nick's Boogie" (at 11:47) by Pink Floyd, plus an interview with Mick Jagger and an introductory reading by Allen Ginsberg called "Tonight Let's All Make Love in London". However, there are other tracks by Fleetwood Mac, the Nice, the Moody Blues and others that did not appear on the original album or the See for Miles reissue.

To help promote Tonite Let's All Make Love in London...Plus, the interviews with Michael Caine and Lee Marvin and the two extended instrumental tracks, "Nick's Boogie" and "Interstellar Overdrive", were also released as a Pink Floyd CD. While the sleeve for the Pink Floyd release of Tonite Let's All Make Love in London...Plus states 'Mini Promotion – CD Sampler' this item was in fact a full release and was available for sale in many independent record stores. The interviews are also as one track, thus the CD has three tracks, although the booklet incorrectly lists the interviews as two separate tracks.
