Rock Cellar Magazine

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets was launched in recent years as an avenue for the legendary drummer tour the world playing classics from the early days of Pink Floyd to rapturous crowds appreciative of a trip back through time.

In May 2019, the group — Mason, bassist Guy Pratt, guitarists Gary Kemp of Spandau Ballet and Lee Harris from Ian Dury’s Blockheads and keyboardist Dom Beken — performed at London’s Roundhouse, and a live album was culled from that performance. Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets – Live At The Roundhouse was supposed to be released in mid-April, but the COVID-19 pandemic pushed its street date back to Sept. 18 … which means it’s almost here.

Definitely check out this live album if you’re a fan of early Pink Floyd, as it’ll be right up your alley. Per our Rock Cellar Store’s item page:

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets took the drummer back to clubs for the first time in 1967, then to theatres, across the UK, North America and Europe, playing only music his old band had recorded before The Dark Side of the Moon.

Captured from the band’s celebrated shows at London’s Roundhouse, where Pink Floyd played some of their most revered early shows in the 1960s, the film features a uniquely thrilling setlist including songs hailing from Syd Barrett’s time with the band. Only four songs from this eclectic roster have ever previously appeared on official live releases by Pink Floyd or its members. Everything else is being experienced for the first time since their original live performances.
