This is a cool item.
I too have a copy. Mines almost mint with the name "Ray" written in the centre in pencil but it's very lightly written, you can hardly see it.. A true mint one fetches the £400 mark.
Though it's pressed in Great Britain but it is an export. Printed in Britain for export. It is quite rare, in fact it's rarer than the original Sun 45 as it as the same A and B sides.
I've played it only once while making a video of it playing with a direct in line mono recording at the same time.
Not a pop or crackle to be heard, beautiful.... and it has the longer ending, it doesn't cut off.
You have it in its original sleeve, too. It's cool also that Scotty and Bill are mentioned on the label. If memory serves me correctly, I think it was the other HMV "Mystery Train" with "Love Me" on the other side that had the abrupt ending on "Mystery Train" cutting off the fade out.
What's interesting, and it's not mentioned in any books i have or any other books, unless my memory is failing me is, this is the only one of his 5 Sun singles to be released around the world with the same A and B as the original Sun 45 in the 50s excluding the United States, and I think Canada did all five with same A and B sides but that's about it.
