Anyhow, keep up the good work, Thanks !!!

With scant Catalog Chart information released so far this week the following is all we have:

'The Essential Elvis Presley' re-enters the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at 42 selling some 8,755 units. Total sales to date: 524,965 units. Being a double album it is eligible for double sales under RIAA rules i.e. 17,418 units.

'Heart And Soul' re-enters the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at 185 selling some 2,459 units. Total sales to date: 665,297 units.

'He Touched Me' (Vols. 1 and 2) re-enters the Music Video Chart at 32.

Should more sales data come to light it will be posted on this thread.

Does anyone know if Sony / Legacy has any plans to present EPE with some of the newer Gold / Platinum certifications, such as "An Afternoon In The Garden," "Elvis Presley - Christmas Duets," and "The Essential Elvis Presley" during Elvis Week this year?

I don't think so. The new awards/upgrades are usually posted on the RIAA website before any presentation is made. There is nothing to be gained by SONY in getting these awards as they do not sell records - however Ernst and Sony appreciate that fans like to see Elvis get all that is due to him and I am glad of that. However, we live in hope for presentations to be made soon if not next week.

Sales figures should pick up some momentum, now that Elvis week, and the 16th, (yesterday), is now coming to an end.

I still can't figure out why SONY goes to all this trouble to release something like this, then rarely promotes it in the big markets , and/or TV ads, mags, etc etc ...

This music slipped under the radar when it was first released. Sony is trying to rectify this and same thing is happening all over again.

We have to get casual/non Elvis fans interested in his catalog for it to survive, if they want it to survive beyond his usual hardcore fan base.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'Heart And Soul' rises from 185 to 182 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart for w/e 24th August, 2013 selling some 2,329 units. Total sales to date: 667,626 units. It also rises from 44 to 37 on the Catalog Album Chart.

The following albums appeared on the Catalog Album Chart:

'An Afternoon In The Garden' rises from 93 to 80 selling some 1,804 units. Total sales to date: 573,365 units.

'The Essential Elvis' (Double Album) appeared at 96 selling some 1,666 units. Total sales to date: 526,631 units. For RIAA purposes this has now sold 1,053,262 units. It also appeared on the 'Albums With TEA' at 195 selling some 3,191 units. (TEA) Track equivalent albums is a term used to describe a method of converting the sale of individual songs (singles) into whole album numbers. In other words, every time ten units of a single are sold, those ten units are counted as one album sale. Track equivalent albums are considered a reliable means of gauging whether music fans are buying whole albums or are opting to buy single tracks instead.

'Elvis Inspirational (Compilation) rises from 143 to 113 selling some 1,579 units. Total sales to date: 172,212 units.

'The Very Best Of Love' re-enters at 151 selling some 1,352 units. Total sales to date: 375,677 units.

'Elvis Country' (Compilation) rises from 187 to 181 selling some 1,257 units. Total sales to date: 199,206 units.

'He Touched Me' (Vols.1 and 2) dropped from 32 to 34 on the Music Video Sales Chart.

I don`t know about others here but I have seen a lot of mags, online reviews with regards to this release, actually more than PFAP. There is a big difference (as you know) between the 70`s and 2013 marketing and there isn't no way that sony will ever undo that previous wrong, but there heart and mind is in the right place and they are quite happy with the return they will eventually get, but no way are they ever going to spend thousands of dollars to promote this, as sony reps will simply tell you "Elvis sells himself". That said, I do expect some great things in 2014, 15, 16 and 17, including some surprises along the way.

So Elvis has been certified about 3 million more album sales. Wonder what his total is? I think the Beatles' total is about 28 million. Viva Elvis hasn't done too bad.
