Ok, is this the "Playlist: The Very Best Of Elvis" disc, or "Best Of Love" title ?

If not, anyone have any other soundscan info regarding that title, or any others , "Elvis '56", perhaps ?

Thanks in advance ...

'The Very Best Of Love' album referred to is as follows:

In other words the 2007 re-issue of the original 2001 release.

The last Soundscan sales figures we have for 'Elvis 56' is up to September, 2010 when it had scanned 237,000 units.

Thanks for the updates.

So, Best of Love seems to be recently the most consistent seller. The public are taking a shine to that album's theme. Amazing to think that this re-issue of a 2001 release could be certified Gold in approximately two and a half years time.

Here's something more general, showing the top 20 artists in album sales, BUT only since Soundscan begin, in 1991. If I am not mistaken, it does not include 2012 complete figures (in parenthesis, the number of albums sold, again, as per Soundscan)


) Garth Brooks (68,554,000)
2) The Beatles (63,100,000)
3) Mariah Carey (53,474,000)
4) Metallica (53,059,000)
5) Celine Dion (51,415,000)
6) George Strait (43,138,000 00)
7) Eminem (41,028,000)
8) Tim Mcgraw (40,074,000)
9) Alan Jackson (38,771,000)
10) Pink Floyd (37,069,000)
11) U2 (34,715,000)
12) Kenny G (34,248,000)
13) Shania Twain (34,118,000)
14) Elvis Presley (33,656,000)
15) Michael Jackson (32,722,000)
16) Britney Spears (32,432,000)
17) AC/DC (31,489,000)
18) Pearl Jam (31,082,000)
19) Backstreet Boys (30,958,000)
20) Dave Matthews Band (30,725,000)

Of the twenty, 13 are what we may consider the newer artists, namely those appearing on the scene in, say, the last decade of the 20th Century, coinciding almost with the advent of Soundscan, and continuing until today. The rest, with the exception of Elvis, exploded in the music scene starting in the sixties, seventies and eighties. Like Elvis, who started in the fifties, they keep selling briskly, every year. Now, Elvis has shipped amost thrice the amount he's credited here, and has RIAA certificatons exceeding 134.5 million, in part as a result of his sales before Soundscan, as is the case with the Beatles, who've also sold almost thrice as much, also according to the RIAA. Brooks' low number is explained by most of his albums being double albums, so that figure has to be multiplied by two, which comes pretty close to his RIAA 128 million tally.

Now, here's the top twenty, as per the RIAA, in millions of albums certified with Elvis, again, being the only one whose career started in the 1950's. Newer artist here, as defined earlier in this message, are understandably fewer in number as RIAA certification started in 1958.

1 BEATLES, THE 177
2 PRESLEY, ELVIS 134.5
3 BROOKS, GARTH 128
4 LED ZEPPELIN 111.5
5 EAGLES 100
6 JOEL, BILLY 81.5
7 PINK FLOYD 74.5
8 JOHN, ELTON 72
9 AC/DC 71.5
10 STREISAND, BARBRA 71.5
11 JACKSON, MICHAEL 70.5
12 STRAIT, GEORGE 68.5
13 ROLLING STONES, THE 66.5
14 AEROSMITH 66.5
15 MADONNA 64.5
16 SPRINGSTEEN, BRUCE 64.5
17 CAREY, MARIAH 63.5
18 METALLICA 62
19 HOUSTON, WHITNEY 57
20 VAN HALEN 56.5

Elvis Presley

Total Soundscan-registered Album Sales (1991-Aug 2012) = 34,466,000

Re: SoundScan (US) sales-figures

Fri Mar 01, 2013 1:47 pm

I believe the figures Jaime posted for total soundscan sales are to November 2011. So from Nov 11 to August 12, Elvis has sold close to 800k albums in the US, pretty good going.
It also seems that Elvis has outsold the top 10 artists of the soundscan era in 2012, apart from the Beatles, who have a similar figure to E.
Garth Brooks only sold 56k albums in 2012 !!!

That someone who first walked into a recording studio on July of 1954 has sold close to 35,000,000 albums, in the US alone, starting from a date (1991) which in fact was not just 37 years after he first recorded (1954), but is also 15 years after he last visited a recording studio (1976) and that this goes on for a period which is, to date, an uninterrupted 59 years, 36 of which, to date, in total inactivity since he passed away is just AMAZING. Compare it with what say, someone like Sinatra has achieved, which is a lot. He started earlier, much earlier, still sold a lot less, albeit not so much less since Soundscan began, the latter the direct result of him living a lot longer too, with his period of inactivity being shorter by 22 years and thus with his album sales being stronger when he was still active, especially from 1991, when Soundscan started, until his death, in 1999. The only act which comes close, catalogue wise, are the Beatles, but they had something which Presley didn´t, and that is their ACTIVE presence to advertise their Beatles catalogue by touring or releasing albums themselves from 1970, when they disbanded until i) 1980 (in Lennon´s case) ii) 2,001 (in Harrison´s case) and, iii) until this year, 2013, as the touring currently being undertaken by both Paul and Ringo, separately, surely attests to. When Paul toured Peru´s capital, last year, Lima record stores ran out of their Beatles catalogue, not just his, on the next day...Incredibly, and although the 4 had active solo careers in excess of a cumulative 125 years (10 for Lennon, plus 31 for harrison, plus 42 each, for Paul and Ringo), against those of Elvis, namely 23 years, their combined album sales, as solo performers, are less than half of those sold by Presley, as per both the RIAA and Soundscan In fact, in the US, by far the world´s largest market, Presley has more DIFFERENT sales awards (153, as per the RIAA), not just than the Beatles as a group, but even when you add them all to each and every one of those awarded to all the 4 individual Beatles, as solo artists (LOL)

Thanks!! Actually there came a time when I could, and still can, actually memorize some of these sentences (LOL), thereby allowing me to throw them, matter of factly, at an unsuspecting Beatles fan as he blindly and stupidly rejects Presley´s ability to sell more albums, while no longer alive, than the individual Beatles ever did or do, dead and alive(LOL). And whoever is the subject of my ire (LOL), he or she should be considered lucky, as I am a huge Beatles fan, as a group, or individually, as well.

Some great sales for Elvis, especially in this fickle world of downloading the latest "hit", hit today, hit gone later today, minds of the teen buying public.

I'm curious though, What happened to the genre cd, "Elvis Rock", that seemed to be selling pretty well up until about a few months ago ? I think the last sales I saw on that title was around 152, 000 ... Did people just stop buying it ? In favour of the other genre cd, "Elvis Country" ?

How about the last Legacy, "As Recorded At Madison Square Garden" set ? The hardcores have been clamoring for a remaster of this album for years, yet, not a dent in the charts or sales ? Interesting ....

I betcha, if Sony would do just a little more in promo for some of these discs, Tv ads and/or mags, we could see a few more "GOLD" in th Elvis collection.
