I'm over it. Don't get me wrong, it will be great to get it in better quality but I'm more interested in seeing where this ends up. If ABFT was to be rereleased, it wouldn't be right for people who own it already.

I think something big is coming. I just have that gut feeling.

If these reports are true, then I think this may well end up on a 'Young Man With The Big Beat' styled package. No doubt it will be something to look forward to.

Of course it will be "that much better", we're talking about a properly mastered direct, in-line transfer of the wire-recording vs. a digital conversion of a low-res YouTube streamed compressed video where the audio has been recorded on a digicam capturing the wire being played through a speaker in a room, with all the ambient room noise to boot (pun).

The kinescope of this performance supposedly does exist in the hands of the man from Alabama.

Matthew, this is exactly my thought as well.

Hopefully, Sebastian Jeansson will do the mastering -- his work on the CDs included with A Boy From Tupelo is wonderful.

Those doubting the quality difference between a direct inline transfer and an audio rip of a YouTube video of a digital camera picking up the audio being played back in a room should do the following:

Grab your digital camera and video your stereo playing a song from a CD (it really doesn't matter what song you use, or how good the quality of the original recording is). Next, upload that video to YouTube (don't skip this step!). Then, capture the audio from the YouTube video to an audio file. Finally, play that audio file next to the original CD through the same stereo. If one can't discern a significant quality difference then perhaps they should think about a hearing test.

So true, Matthew. If properly transferred and remastered "I Forgot to Remember to Forget" will be the best sounding Louisiana Hayride recording, even the first performance recorded on tape can hide.;)

It really wouldn't matter if it were a perfect studio recording or a rough acetate. The quality difference between an inline transfer of it and an audio rip of a YouTube upload of a digital camera videoing a playback of the source would arguably be the same.

Hope to god this is true and we see an official release soon.

This is wonderful news congrats to you Ernst for getting this wonderful treasure.
Look forward to seeing it on an official release that it deserves.

Where has this 'news' been confirmed? I havn't seen any official announcement about this. If it's true, my guss is that 2014 will see a 6oth anniversary Sun release featuring this track on Legacy or something.

Maybe Ernst'll play it during Elvis week.

I`ve said this before and I will say it again, expect a lot of various elvis products (good and bad) between 2014 - 2017, absolutely no question!!

You're wrong. I DO expect and always hope that someone (Lene??) doesn't ruin something with bad mastering, slow speed, naff edits etc, etc.

Why tamper with it if the sound is good?
