hmm,what `other`corrections were there?! You`ll note i said `availability`problem,which isn`t necessarily aimed at BMG,but store managers,or staff,or whoever is keeping the singles in the basement...

Erm, I mean 'She's Not You', not 'Devil in Diguise', (a little too much Friday night wine!)

Ooh, we're lucky; it looks like we'll have a number two for sure this week. Forget a number one next week, as it looks as though 'Is this the way to Amarillo' will be released as the second Red Nose Day charity single, which means that Devil in Disguise will be lucky to hold on to #3, as McFly will doubtless continue to be a hot seller.

the most elvis cd's that can be sold in one week is a maxium of 40,000, as bmg will not ship any unnumbered cds in the first week of release. so #2 this week or any week would be good.

As I have mentioned on previous threads, the quantity available from BMG is not the problem - it's whether the record stores are ordering enough. I have visited various HMV shops around the southern part of the UK this week, and apart from central London, none had spare copies of GLC, and this was Wednesday lunchtime. I doubt if BMG ship out by number order, which means that seeing a disc with the number of 35000+ doesn't mean that there are that quanitity around. I still think that HMV and Virgin are only ordering enough to satisfy pre-orders, and maybe a handful more, but that's it. They'll probably order some more for the following week, but it'll be too late to get Elvis another number 1. It stinks of politics.

mtm1a, once again I have to correct you. Supply problem? Last week my copy of Rock-a-hula Baby was #35,641. This would indicate that there are more than enough copies out which should guarantee at least one more #1, with charity singles probably providing the greatest problem. Long Live The King!

can`t remember who is out at the same time as Devil, but as has been said, we won`t top 30,000 with the availability problem, so as always it depends on other sales. Could be completely wrong, but maybe Ciara... one hit wonder, or a total jinx! Whoever it is, the way 1s are going recently, someone`ll prob top 30,000, leaving The King cheated again.

Am I right ? Is the album 30 #1 since 2 and a half years in the top 10 Country Pop Charts ? Is this a new record, or what ? TCB.

hopefully GLC will climb toward the 28,000 mark by the close of saturday and with that maybe hold onto the number two spot this week. I hear Devil in disguise might have a good chance of number 1 but whats the competition like that week
