The Sun 45s were pressed by Plastic Products, Inc of Memphis, Tennessee, and Sun would return any unusable pressings to them. This practice was common, since Plastic Products recycled old pressings and the process was not without defective pressings. Sun Records released the single of “Mystery Train” in August of 1955 with “I Forgot to Remember to Forget” on side B. Later that year, in November of 1955, RCA Victor purchased the master records from Sun and released “Mystery Train” again that month, followed by the release of the additional four Sun singles in December of 1955. “Mystery Train” is considered to be the recording that gained Elvis recognition as a country music star and was ranked #77 on Rolling Stone magazine’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” The offered Sun Records single 45 for “Mystery Train” (223) contains matrix numbers which appear in the dead wax areas, with “45-U-156x 20” on side A and “45-U-157x 20” marked on side B. This treasured piece of history, measuring 7 inches (17.78 cm) in diameter, is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The record presents with few defects, only minor scuffs and scratches. There is a small black mark on the "Mystery Train" label. Very clean. Near Mint condition.
