Nick Mason streams performance of Pink Floyd classic See Emily Play

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets are streaming video of a 2019 performance of the classic Pink Floyd track, “See Emily Play”, as the latest preview to their forthcoming package “Live At The Roundhouse.”

Written by Syd Barrett, the tune was originally released as the band’s second UK single in the spring of 1967, where it reached No. 6 to deliver the group their first Top 10 hit; it was added to the US versions of their debut album, “The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn”, a few months later.

“Live At The Roundhouse” presents Mason’s outfit in concert at the legendary London venue last spring during the group’s first tour as they delivered music that had rarely been featured in Pink Floyd’s live shows since their early days.

The drummer launched the project – which exclusively performs vintage pre-Dark Side Of The Moon era material by the iconic band – in the spring of 2018.

Originally scheduled to be issued this past spring, “Live At The Roundhouse” was moved to a September 18 release date “due to the current situation and considering the well-being of our fans,” says the band.
