To be precise, The Essential Elvis Presley has sold 912,716 discs, not copies.
It has sold 456,358 copies.

If discs are considered units, then I can live with that.

When 1 copy of The Essential Elvis Presley is sold, then that means 2 discs or 2 units were sold.
That's my point.

I have a feeling that the sales for An Afternoon In The Garden are really going to stall
when the Prince From Another Planet set is released.
It might take until early to mid-2013 for "Afternoon" to earn Gold status.

There was a time earlier this year when it was selling about 3,000 per week and it looked like it would earn Gold by
the time Elvis Week rolled around. Oh well, so much for that.
I haven't seen a copy of it in a Wal-Mart store for several months now.

In Spanish we have a saying, something to the effect of "creyendo en santos que orinan", which translated into English is something along the lines of "believing in wishful thinking'. The album was voted by 250,000 people worldwide, and Elvis has in excess of 6 million friends at Facebook, the latter to give just an example, so the folks at SONY Legacy did not support it via any other, big media ads. A CD which, incidentally, has little to offer except for the images of those who voted and sent their pictures to EPE appearing on the cover. The result? Well, from the Hits Daily Double webpage it is evident that only say, 6,000 people, who knows, maybe half of that, could care enough about this release to go and buy it, and this inspite of this week's being the 35th anniversary of Presley';s death. Tomorrow we'll know how many did. Again, a monumental waste of an opportunity by SONY, not just to sell their product, but to enter the charts, as only one other release got big results this week. Only one. In fact , it sold a little more than 3,300 copies and landed at 137 in the Billboard 200, number 26 on the online chart.

Thanks Brian, I missed that one since I usually look for Elvis 30 number ones hitting that particular chart and my eyes are trained to look for those letters, numbers etc. aS YOU CAN NOW SEE, I'VE ALREADY INCLUDED IT IN MY LAST POST (lol)
