Pink Floyd stream video for rare 1968 single Point Me At The Sky

Pink Floyd are streaming a restored clip for the 1968 single, “Point Me At The Sky”, as part of their ongoing vintage video series.

The fifth UK single by the band features vocals by new addition David Gilmour – who joined the lineup earlier that year in place of outgoing co-founder Syd Barrett – with assistance by bassist Roger Waters.

The promotion-only, non-album track failed to chart in the group’s homeland, while it’s b-side, "Careful With That Axe, Eugene", went on to be featured on 1970’s “Ummagumma” and the 1971 compilation, “Relics.”

Gilmour has been making headlines recently with news of an upcoming auction in New York where the Pink Floyd legend will sell off more than 120 guitars from his personal collection.

Christie's auctioneers will host the June 20 event, which will focus on a selection of Gilmour’s preferred Fender Broadcasters, Esquires, Telecasters and Stratocasters.

Not only the largest and most comprehensive sale of guitars ever offered at auction, the collection details the musical history of one of the world’s most influential guitarists and the iconic Fender Stratocaster the rocker played on classic 1970 Pink Floyd albums “The Dark Side Of The Moon”, “Wish You Were Here”, “Animals” and “The Wall.”

All proceeds from the Christie’s auction will benefit charitable causes; watch a video preview of the event here.
