The Early Singles is a CD that is available only on Pink Floyd's 1992 Shine On box set. It is a compilation of the first five Pink Floyd singles, in order. Except for the song "The Scarecrow", which appeared on The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967), and "Careful with That Axe, Eugene", a live version of which was on Ummagumma, the rest of the tracks were not released on any studio albums. Although several of the tracks appeared on earlier compilations (notably Relics (1971) and Works (1983), this was the first release that brought the 1960s singles together. To date, it is still the only official CD release to contain "Point Me at the Sky" and "It Would Be So Nice".
