1967: The First Three Singles was released in 1997 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the band. It features the band's first three singles, which were written mostly by their band leader, Syd Barrett. The album was distributed by EMI Records in the United Kingdom and Columbia Records in the United States. All tracks are either extended or edited versions of the original singles.[citation needed]

Singles[edit]Edit

"Arnold Layne"—released on 11 March 1967—reached number 20[2] in the charts while "See Emily Play"—released 16 June 1967—made it to number 6,[3]their highest charting single in the UK until the release of "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)" in 1979. "Apples and Oranges"—from 18 November 1967—was largely overlooked, with Roger Waters blaming its poor sales on bad production.[4][5]

Cover[edit]Edit

The album cover includes the original artwork which was found on each of the singles. "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play" both later appeared on Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd in 2001. All of these appear on the 40th anniversary, three-disc edition, of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, as "Scarecrow" appears on the album and the third disc has the others.
