Sadly, a rise in the charts of that amount might seem like a significant jump, but in actual sales figures it's probably very few. On Amazon rankings, for example, just a handful of sales (literally half a dozen) can see an item jump quite a lot of places.

...an singer can now debut at #3 on the Billboard 200 charts with 54,000 copies sold in a week, you would NOT being doing that in he 70`s!! :wink:

...Heart & Soul has jumped from #182 to #112 in the last 3-weeks, I can guarantee you that presents a few hundred copies sold during that time with a grand total most likely around 3,000, I`m sure someone will post those sales soon!! :wink: Amazon would not be the most appropriate comparison.

That's a fantastic CD though, good sound, well sequenced.

This is the kind of album that can wet a casual fan's appetite and search for more, IMO.

'Heart And Soul' sold around 2,500 copies last week.

Wow! have you got Elvis' S-Scan sales for the last 4 years too?
How could Elvis have sold 1.1million albums in 2013? If I remember rightly, he only had 2 Christmas albums chart, 1 at #40, Also Elvis at Stax at #190? Guess his huge catalogue must sell in dribs and drabs?


Exactly. There is so much to choose from his back catalog, that a few sales on many titles adds up to a lot of sales. Elvis is no longer a big retail artist seller with new releases, but more a compiler. A brand new release by him doesnt sell say what one by Bruce Springsteen does, but those sales along with his back catalog sales adds up to a lot of sales. And the many new titles keep coming, so he complies & compiles.

How many did Elvis sell in the 1991 to 2013 years? Not good he's not in the top ten.


The others are NOT dead.
