WATCH: Pink Floyd performs "A Saucerful of Secrets" live at Pompeii

Relive the alternate live version of A Saucerful of Secrets from Pink Floyd's "Live at Pompeii: Directors Cut" above.

A Saucerful of Secrets was first titled "The Massed Gadgets of Hercules" in its earliest release and was part of Pink Floyd's live staple between 1968 and 1972.

This marks Gilmour's first songwriting credit with Pink Floyd, although on the original vinyl and CD issues, they have misspelt his name as "Gilmore", which was later corrected in the remastered releases in 1994.

In this live performance, the pace of the song is much faster compared to the studio version, as driven by Mason's drumming. Gilmour also does vocals for the last chord progression only instead of two.
