Lisa Marie Strikes Gold !

Sun May 25, 2003 1:50 am

I see the Lisa Marie CD has gone gold.

That's my girl !

Anyone know if this is for US sales alone ?

Does it count for an RIAA award ?

I wonder if she well put her gold record on the wall next to all those Elvis ones. :D
Way to go Lisa.

It should be due for a platinum award soon, I'm sure it has SHIPPED close to one million units, but likely BMG is waiting for the sales to approach that amount before requesting certification.

Is Capitol owned by BMG?

ya got me. :shock:

I am so used to saying BMG when discussing RIAA certifications, that I forgot who Lisa's label was.

Capitol is indeed Lisa's label. Oops. :oops:

Let's hope that Lisa's label [Capitol] is better at claiming her RIAA awards than RCA was with Elvis in the early years [& later on] !

Didn't certain people on this board imply she was a failure? My attitude is that she is growing in popularity and people are actually starting to listen. I actually heard her Graceland song in a club t he other day. Weird!

Genesim -

The miserable lot who call her a failure are way off base !

1st CD enters Billboard at No.5

1st CD goes gold [and is still selling]

Some failure !
