The original record release credited "Little Junior's Blue Flames." The number was probably based on a Carter Family song from 1930, called "Worried Man Blues." Little Junior's "Mystery Train" was released towards the end of 1953 on Sun 192, together with "Love My Bay," a strange coupling in some ways, as they were basically the same tunes with different lyrics—"Love My Baby" was played more frantically, however, and the guitar playing on the track clearly influenced that on Elvis's own "Mystery Train" (played there by Scotty Moore).
