Re-issue Of The Original Sun Singles

Next summer at the 50th Anniversary for Elvis’ first Sun release "That’s All Right/Blue Moon Of Kentucky" will there be pressed a very limited amount of vinyl singles from the original mother stamper from Sun. It will be the first time since 1954 that there will be pressed any record from the master. Updated thanks to the Elvis Express: We received information from the Elvis Express website that these re-issues are a rumour: "We do know that a meeting took place between the owner of the mother stamper (left) and EPE and BMG officials but as of this time, no official decision has been made."

Well put gribz, I have heard the test pressing from the mother disc. There are several crackles on there but the sound is superb, it is great to hear for an historical viewpoint. The track has no compression and sounds wonderful. There are more details regarding this on my website.

On this particluar releae, I don't want the quality to be any better than the original masters. I want to experience it the way it sounded 50 years ago... This is quite different than what I do expect from all the Commercial hits...Very important from a historical viewpoint for it remain un-touched. Do all agree?

This will be a nice thing to have from a historic viewpoint. I doubt the sound will be better than the tape source.

I know I will be getting a copy.. I remember on my first trip to Graceland, before they opened, you were able to buy a copy of the original for 500 dollars.. I didn't have the money at the time. I was only 18 and these were actual copies made in 1954.

Does this mean that the sound should be better than ever? Because a (master)tape becomes a bit muffled after so much years, but this here is pure mechanic...Wich means that is has probably the same sound on it as how the tape sounded 50 years ago?!?
