I took 'V. 2' of "He Touched Me" to mean version 2, not volume 2, which would then refer to the version with the colour 60s cover, not the 50s black & white cover.

I imagine when they refer to volume one and two they mean the original VHS release which was sold as two separate tapes. In the years they mention, 1998 and 1999, VHS was still king and DVD was very new.

Great to see Elvis, go Platinum, once again. Such Great News ! And, Of note, If more accurate records were kept in the past, and the qualification rules didn't keep changing, so much, over the years, Elvis would have had alot more Platinum and Gold awards.

I guess that when they're referring to Vol.2 it's actually the reissue with the cover shown. Or am I wrong about that?
I have it with the original black and white photo, and it was later reissued with this cover.

I don't think we do, we have a weekly DVD chart but I could not find any information about certification based on sales figures. I imagine we just use that system for CDs, etc, in Europe.

It's nice to have more awards STILL. But what about EUROPEAN AWARDS?
