VIDEO: Pink Floyd stream 1969 performance of Careful With That Axe Eugene

Pink Floyd are streaming video of a 1969 performance of their 1968 classic, “Careful With That Axe, Eugene”, as part of their vintage video series.

The black and white footage was filmed during the band’s appearance at the Essencer Pop & Blues Festival in Essen, Germany on October 11, 1969.

The fan favorite first surfaced as the b-side to the Pink Floyd‘s stand-alone single, “Point Me At The Sky”, which was released following their second album, “A Saucerful Of Secrets”, and before the soundtrack to the 1969 film, “More.”

A live version of “Careful With That Axe, Eugene” would surface on the 1969 album, “Ummagumma”, with the studio take appearing on the 1971 compilation, “Relics”, among other places.

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 the group will resume their 2019 schedule next month with a number of shows across Europe.
