Such a shame
Did you see Mick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets? Either the live show or the film?
I tried to get tickets to a live show with no success but I did go to the "One-Off" live screening at cinemas around the country. I confess I was not madly struck on the film with too many changes of camera shot for my liking, reminded me of Mike Mansfield who seemed to think a three second shot was too long…BUT I LOVED the music.

Anyway, if you know somebody who likes early Pink Floyd or actually likes Pink Floyd but not the early stuff (!) then you MUST get them the new CD/DVD pack that has just been released for Xmas or whatever, they will thank you for a long time.

Of course you might not own the "original" of this material on CD or DVD and the nearest you can get to it is the Pompeii DVD. I had this on video all those years ago and thought I would treat myself to it on DVD, and so got the "Directors Cut" version on DVD…and it is nowhere near as good as the original version, it being interspersed with odd footage and clips of the band talking. What a pity…but hang on, tucked away there on the extra features it the original version without all the junk. All is well.
You can get this DVD here
