As of last Sunday, 23rd October, 2005, the top 3 acts in the UK Weekly Album Points List are as follows:
(1) Queen - 1332 weeks
(2) The Beatles - 1293 weeks
(3) Elvis - 1291 weeks.
With the imminent release of the TV promoted 'Hitstory', expected to go Top 30 in the UK, and the re-release of 'Christmas Peace' around Christmas time, Elvis should overtake The Beatles to achieve second place.
On another topic, the proposed re-release of the Limited Edition of 'Heartbreak Hotel' on January 9th in the UK has been shelved by Sony BMG.
