It's the artwork shown in a USA Today article.

I hope not

This pic is also on EIN. Like kiwi, I hope not.

It's highly unlikely.

That artwork(?) is about as bad as can be imagined.

Now, that was funny!!

We got no face on E1. Maybe half a face on 2nd to none.
Do we have to wait for vol.3 to get the full face??

If you like it, that is fine, but I'm trying to figure out how that artwork "says just what it is." When I see it, it says "Elvis is number 2."
Perhaps this is something which unfolds?

BMG should let The Shape design the cover

I don't like the disembodied head with a two getting tucked into it.
is it a new slot machine or a kiddy ride???

Hey we might not get a piture cover, just the name of it like the 30#1
Any who? when this thing do to come out in aug.

I hope NOT. The artwork is terrible - looks funny and abnormally unusual. But then Half A Loaf Is Better Than None.
still Elvis is the King Of the Whole Wide World - half face or no face!

It is a clever graphic for what it was, an illustration for a news story. I'm sure a USA Today staffer designed it and it has nothing to do with what the final cover will be.

I find it hard to believe that USA Today has staffers making mock album covers for their stories about upcoming album releases.

Who said it was a mock album cover?
Sat Jul 05, 2003 5:13 am
I pray that this IS a Mock Album Cover and NOT the real thing. If this is the actual cover -then it will surely be a great Disaster. What a lousy cover art with a half face Elvis with a 2, looking more like a question mark (?).
Out of the thousands upon thousands of great Elvis photos - why this kind of slip-sod art design again & again. Ernst & Company, please do something about this.

IMO, it wasn't an album cover, mock or otherwise, simply an illustration...
Didn't we go through something this before E1 also? Too many constipated people with high blood pressure. Lay off the salt people.

Read and learn!
The official site -- and cover art -- will be found here:
It was registered by BMG Music in Beverly Hills on 03 April 2003.
Currently the above URL defaults back to the ELV1S 30 #1 Hits page. This should change within the next eight weeks.

It’s my guess that the “ELV1S” logo that was used for the 30 Number One Hits campaign will also be incorporated into the “Second To None” design. BMG used this logo on the last batch of re-issued albums, and as “Second To None” is intended as the follow up to “ELV1S” it seems likely that BMG will present the product in a way that the general public can identify with this.

great work Doc!
I give credit where credit is due, that was a nice find.

Well spotted Doc!
Now that's keeping the eye on the ball.
Why Beverley Hills?
Mon Jul 07, 2003 9:41 am
Beverly Hills was the location of the BMG office that registered the site, not the location of the actual registration(which likely was done in cyberspace).

BMG maintains an office in Beverly Hills, CA.
