Fate Amenable To Change

can anyone tell me which album the Bike song is on? You know...
"I've got a bike you can ride it if you like it's got a basket and bells and lots of things to make it look good. I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it." etc

"See Emily Play" and "Arnold Layne" were singles that pretty much launched Pink Floyd onto the underground scene, but they didn't appear on any full length album until "Works" I think. Maybe it was the same with "Bike?" But it's on "Echoes", as you said.

It's also on 'Relics'

I have an idea it pops up on 'a Nice Pair' which is a mono album of 'Piper...' & 'Saucer...' featuring different recordings of some of the songs (I think...).

A Nice Pair is merely the first 2 albums, Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets, repackaged. But records are the conventional stereo mixes. The only way to get the different mono mix of Piper, mixed by Syd, is to buy the original mono LP (at an extortionate price off some dodgy dealer) or to search for the now deleted CD reissue that came in a nice green box.
