A Record Lost

Holiday sales might be depressing, but it's no blue Christmas for Josh Groban. He just broke a chart record Elvis set back when Eisenhower was President.

Josh Groban's Noël claimed an unprecedented fourth straight week at number one, a feat never before accomplished by a holiday album. Elvis Presley set the previous record, three weeks, half a century ago with 1957's Elvis' Christmas Album.

Not a big deal - the record stood for over 50 years and Im sure Josh's total sales will never equal Elvis' total sales for a Christmas album. By the way, I contributed to the broken record (oh no!) by buying Josh's CD. Best version of Silent Night I ever heard. Nowhere near a pop album, just a pure voice singing Christmas songs. Very festive.

"Elvis' Christmas Album" did have four weeks at No1, but non-consecutive. With the publicity Josh's album had, you'd expect it to be No1 for weeks!
