Sun Records 45 rpm: #223 ‘I Forgot to Remember to Forget’/‘Mystery Train’ and original Sun Records sleeve. The last of Presley’s historic Sun Records singles was released on August 6, 1955, as Sun-223. Both songs were recorded during the same July 11 session with ‘Mystery Train,’ a re-make of Little Walter’s 1953 version (also on Sun) considered the b-side. ‘I Forgot to Remember to Forget’ topped the Billboard Country Singles chart in February 1956, remained there for 5 weeks, and stayed on the charts for 39 weeks, thereby bringing Elvis to a national audience. It is ‘Mystery Train;’ however, that ranks at #77 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s ‘500 Greatest Songs of All-Time.’ Needless to say, original first pressings of any of Presley’s Sun sides are the most highly prized of any of his records.
