Pink Floyd - See Emily Play Acetate

see emily play

The rarest version of Pink Floyd's second single. Check out this See Emily Play acetate. This piece o' wax surfaced in Amsterdam. Supposedly, the source's sister used to go out with Nick Mason.

The Emidisc-label on the A-side has been hand written, containing (from top to bottom):
2:53
SEE EMILY PLAY
#2
31-5-67
45 RP
THE PINK FLOYD

See Emily Play Lyrics:

Emily tries but misunderstands, ah ooh
She often inclined to borrow somebody's dreams till tomorrow

There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

Soon after dark Emily cries, ah ooh
Gazing through trees in sorrow hardly a sound till tomorrow

There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

Put on a gown that touches the ground, ah ooh
Float on a river forever and ever, Emily, Emily, Emily...

There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for May
See Emily play

Hello. The acetate pictured is different to the one I have seen and heard - which includes the extra guitar coda during the outro. The notes I took at the time: '2:55' underneath the 'Emidisc' text. 'See Emily Play', with '23/5/67' written along the top half of the label - both lines are close together - unlike the one pictured here. '45' listed on the left hand and 'PMC' written on the right - along the center. The one pictured displays 'RP' along the right. Along the bottom of the label is simply 'Pink Floyd' and not 'The Pink Floyd'. 'PMC' was an EMI catalogue number for LPs, whereas 'RP' is a catalogue number for Parlophone 7"s. Very strange. Love the site!
