This is NOT a re-issue; it is an old record with wear that shows its age. There are reproductions of this 45 for sale on eBay; this is NOT one of them.
Welcome to this listing for an original, old copy of Rodney 514 featuring Beamon Forse singing "The Rest of My Life" (Side A) and "You Better Go Now" (Side B).
It seems that collectors of Rockabilly records have a very high regard for this particular 45; it has been referred to as a "Rockabilly Holy Grail."

Research indicates that a copy of this 45 did sell online in 2016. The copy that sold in 2016 had "Houston, Texas" address stickers on it; this one has "Hemphill, Texas"
address stickers on it.
I have listened to both sides and they are noisy, especially with the EQ dished out. The record sounds better with a flat EQ halfway up the sliders. Side A is noisy (more Country-sounding) and Side B (early Rockabilly sound) is really noisy at the beginning of the track, but improves as the song plays.
It has too many scratches to count, but it is not cracked. It does not stick nor skip. There is a clicky scratch on the B side. THE LABEL IS HEAVILY WORN ON BOTH SIDES.
I think it grades G in general with the A Side sounding better than the B Side.
Artist: Beamon Forse.
Titles: A: "The Rest of My Life" / B: "You Better Go Now."
Catalog Number: 514.
Trail off markings:
A Side: PD-514-A.
