Tonite Let's All Make Love In London (1967) DVD - Talvez um dos melhores documentários sobre a swinging London, imperdível, dvd efectuado através de Laserdic Japonês.

Tonite Let's All Make Love In London (1967) DVD
 Após uma demanda de anos, as cópias disponíveis na internet não têm grande qualidade, eis que consigo deitar a mão a um dos mais famosos Documentários sobre a cena musical Inglesa dos anos sessenta, um interessante documento que faltava na minha colecção.

Cópia retirada de um Laserdisc Japonês, não há edição oficial em DVD. 

Tonite Let's All Make Love In London (1967) DVD — Written and directed by Peter Whitehead; featuring Mick Jagger, Vanessa Redgrave, Michael Caine, Julie Christie and many other icons from the 60’s scene in London.  Bonus Section: Seven bands perform hit songs from the era.
Synopsis: Peter Whitehead's 1967 documentary of London scene in the swinging-60's is a visual treat for Mod enthusiasts everywhere. Featuring a who's-who of the scene, Tonight Let's All Make Love In London—Pop Concerto for Film is a visual patchwork of 60's culture, seen through the eyes of the people leading it. Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, Vanessa Redgrave, Allen Ginsberg, Jimi Hendrix and Julie Christie are all here, alongside counter-culture artists and other musicians who helped shape their generation and future ones to come.  Most of the musical content comes in the form of extremely rare concert footage and inside studio recording sessions, while other segments include candid interviews, strange political demonstration footage, and even a segment on the radical art of body painting! Yes, politics and sex are on the palette here as the psychedelic soundtrack from a very young Pink Floyd, swirls and pushes the film on towards the climax of it's brisk 70 minute running time. Languishing in distribution limbo for too long, Tonight Let's All Make Love In London is a fitting testimonial to the changing times in the mid-60's and one that should be able to live on in the years to come for the young and old to look back on and enjoy.
