Elvis is important because he was the one who broke the rules of music, he can be considered as the "primate" of today's rock music. Mystery Train is one important piece and therefore I have several issues (of probably the same source). The interesting thing is that a Brazilian release of 1962 and the Joker release (Germany 1987) runs 2:40 minutes. I can't hear any edited parts in these two releases, but I can hear a cut (rhythm break) at 1:44 on BMG's master. I think many have worked on Mystery Train in the past decades.

The equally great new Sony transfer of the unprocessed, dynamic Mystery Train makes its debut here on 'Elvis at SUN'. The original, full-ending-to-the last-note version derived from lost Sun Tape Box #1 (that was reported to us by Sven Adamski in 1999) has been recovered from the best available source (tape copy with compression and severe generation loss) and matched with precision during the fade-out, using all the tricks in the book and for once stretching all the 'Elvis at SUN' restoration rules. The result of this impossible task is stunning considering the circumstances.

1.) The original Sun-tape was lost. All copies made from this tape have been lost, too.
2.) Before Sun 223, acetates of the full recording have been distributed to local radio stations, it indeed runs 3:10 minutes.
3.) The Sun release 223 and all following releases indeed have a cut at 1:44. BMG confirms that upon request.
4.) The "remix" discussed here is nice, but made out of several known releases. Call it a fake, call it art-work, like it or not.
5.) As usual Elvis fans only believe what they want to believe, and hear only what they want to hear.
