Default Nick Mason?

I've never been much into Pink Floyd, but I've heard alot about Nick Mason and I was wondering if anyone has any songs they'd reccomend so I can hear his skill level?

If my humble opinion is worth anything, then I think Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall are "must haves" for any record collection. There's some fine examples of his playing on both albums.

Oddly enough I have both albums, I don't remember where I put them. But if I recall, last time I listened to them there wasn't anything that stuck out to me. Kind if Phil Rudd-ish

Nick Mason is one of those guys who knows when to play .... what to play .... what not to play .... and when not to play it ....
