See Emily Play With The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn,
This review is from: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (40th Anniversary Edition) (Audio CD)
First lemme say that if you had bought the original US release of PIPER back in the day on the TOWER label, you bought a bastardized version of the album. TOWER dropped ASTRONOMY DOMINE from the original tracking as SEE EMILY PLAY was a hit single in England at the time of its US release. Gotta have them singles on those albums if you wanna sell here in the good ol USA!
The current track listing IS the ORIGINAL EMI track listing as released in England back in 1967.
This kinda reminds me of when EMI/CAPITOL decided to release all the BEATLE albums with the original European track listings.
...also, you really didn't need to wait for this release to get EMILY on disc. The song also appears on a limited edition release called "EARLY SINGLES". It was also released in the SHINE ON Boxset on a bouns disc as well as appearing on the release of "RELICS", which came out a few years back.

I think Flaming was culled by Tower as the single from the album, so the US release lacked that track, and put on See Emily Play instead!
