VIDEO: Pink Floyd stream 1969 performance of A Saucerful Of Secrets

Pink Floyd are streaming video of a 1969 performance of their 1968 classic, “A Saucerful Of Secrets”, as the latest clip in their ongoing vintage video series.

Audio of the band’s appearance at the Forum Musiques in Paris, France would later surface on the extensive 2016 collection, “The Early Years 1965–1972”, a 33-disc box set compilation that digs deep into the UK outfit’s groundbreaking work from the era.

The song was the title track to the group’s second album, which mixed music from outgoing founding member Syd Barrett and incoming guitarist David Gilmour.

The project reached No. 9 on the UK charts while having the distinction of being the band’s only record to fail to appear on the US charts during its original run.

Last year, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason launched a live project named Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets; the lineup exclusively performs vintage pre-Dark Side Of The Moon era material by the iconic band.

Mason and company recently completed a five-show series in the UK, and will resume their 2019 schedule next month with a number of dates across Europe.
