As we reported earlier, a new main label release of the FTD boxset 'A Boy From Tupelo - The Complete 1953 - 1955 Recordings'. One of the big questions we asked was, would
Sony take this opportunity to include the unreleased live Hayride recording of 'I Forgot To Remember To Forget'?

Well, thanks to our News Hound-dog, Tony found the following description on the Indian Amazon site...

A BOY FROM TUPELO: THE COMPLETE 1953-1955 RECORDINGS includes on 3 CDs every surviving Elvis Presley Sun master and outtake, plus two private records Elvis paid
with his own money to record, as well as all known radio- and concert performances from the period. Many of these recordings are rare demos, session takes, and live
including a newly discovered and previously unreleased recording of "I Forgot to Remember to Forget" from a 1955 Louisiana Hayride performance.

The accompanying 120-page book compiled by Elvis authority Ernst Mikael Jørgensen and is, in essence, a fully-illustrated travelogue. It details the birth of Elvis' career through
facts, anecdotes, documentation, many rare photos, and a succinct narrative. Independence Day 1954 is when this uniquely American saga begins, less than 24 hours before his
first professional recording session, and it ends in December 1955, when the rights to Elvis' Sun tapes officially expire and the singer leaves Sam Phillips and Sun Records to
record for RCA Victor.

This is the story of Elvis Presley before he becomes world-famous, and how this amazing young man readies himself for stardom, achieving success on a level that no one could
have dreamed possible.

So there we have it, things look good that this new edition of the collection WILL include this live performance for the first time on the official record label.
