Regular price $14.00
A Saucerful of Secrets - A Saucerful of Secrets is the second studio album by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 29 June 1968 by EMI Columbia in the United Kingdom and released on 27 July 1968 in the United States by Tower Records. The album was recorded before and after Syd Barrett's departure from the group. Owing to Barrett's behaviour becoming increasingly unpredictable, Barrett was forced to leave the band and David Gilmour was recruited in January 1968. - As a result, A Saucerful of Secrets became the only non-compilation Pink Floyd album on which all five band members appeared, the first for Gilmour, with him appearing on five songs ("Let There Be More Light", "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun", "Corporal Clegg", "A Saucerful of Secrets" and "See-Saw"), and the last for Barrett, with him on three ("Remember a Day", "Jugband Blues" and "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun"). "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" was the only song all five members appeared on together. The band's drummer Nick Mason has declared A Saucerful of Secrets to be his favorite Pink Floyd album. • Reintroduction of the Pink Floyd catalogue on vinyl for first time in over two decades • Original vinyl packaging has been lovingly replicated with special care • Pressed on 180 gram vinyl for optimum stereo sound quality • Pink Floyd's second album, originally released in 1968, is the first record to feature David Gilmour and the last to feature Syd Barrett • Classic tracks include "Jugband Blues" and "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun"
