"The Private Psychedelic Reel" is a song by The Chemical Brothers. It was the closing track of their second album Dig Your Own Hole and was released as a numbered limited edition single.[1] The B-side was a live version of "Setting Sun" recorded at the Lowlands Festival in Biddinghuizen, Flevoland, The Netherlands.

The limited edition single included a sticker and a poster of The Chemical Brothers cover artwork released to date. These gifts rendered the single ineligible for the UK singles charts.[citation needed] An un-numbered edition without extras was also released.[2]

The NME rated the track as the 25th best song of 1997. In 1999, music critic Tom Ewing ranked it at number 21 in his list of the "Top 100 Singles of the 90s".[3]

The song was featured in the 2010 miniseries Wonders of the Solar System and in an episode of The Real Hustle.
