According to the new issue of Mojo Magazine, Syd's appearance on the Kevin Ayers track "Singing A Song In The Morning" is finally coming out on a new reissue of Kevin Ayers' "Joy Of A Toy" on CD.

Archivist Mark Powell, who is masterminding the EMI project said: "I've listened to 84 versions of that song, including one that clearly mentions Syd at the start of the take. Yes, there's weird guitar all over it, very wayward, but as a whole it's very together".

The track has been a frequent one on many unofficial collections but to date, none of them have genuinely been the version including Syd's guitar. This new release will be most welcome within the Floyd community.
