Second To None U.K. Chart Debut

In the U.K. the "2nd To None" compilation should enter the Album chart at #4 as the highest new entry if our information is correct. Updated: 13-10-2003 Elvis never had a chance of entering the #1 position due to the massive selling album by Dido. The album missed out on securing a #2 position by a reported figure of only 1000 copies, that position is held by Robbie Williams.

I`m afraid we have seen it all before and I have to echo the sentiments of our other contributors. RCA just cannot follow a hit, they just put something out and hope the frenzy from the previous release will sell it. It won`t fellas, and it`s a disgrace this new album is terriffic, well mastered, packaged (over here anyway) and above all has better songs (on the whole) than E1, as it is not restricted to no.1s JUST LISTEN TO A MESS OF BLUES, An artist that has been dead 26 years needs a push, Even Mr Lennon would struggle to get to the top, and boy the king deserves it, just give it a push I fear it`s your last Hurrah!

I am very dissapointment. I became dissillusioned. The debut day I read nothing. In the store where I live never played the "rubberneckin" single and put the single in a place very difficult to the public. And until october 11, 2003 the cd store guive me the 2nd to none but never put the album at the store or play it. About the fans. Nothing except in other place where were more active. In a few words. I put the cd in a total failure and ruin. Only Beatles with their number 1 and DVD were the number one.
And other comments, in the TV, nothing about the single but in a import store about their 100 anniversare put in his pages Beatles. A total failure. Excuse me, but sincerely

Let's all hope that Elvis 2nd to None gets to No.1 otherwise with a title like this, someone might end up with egg on their face if it only gets to No. 2, as it will then be second to something!!

I actually saw a huge billboard with "2nd to None," on the side of a major highway just outside of Dallas. It is very cool to see things like that.

I don't understand their strategy and tactics either.. There must be some politics involved here.. '2nd to none' will open at least number 2 or 3 inthe USA, with little promotion...Maybe they take the millions they make from Elvis to promote current stars...Next year is the 50th anniv of when it all began at Sun Studios with Thats Allright Mama'. I hope there is a huge blitz on 'radio ,, television ,, and all media outlets, that will then finish next fall with a proper CD to celebrate this enormous event...That goal should be 20 million in global sales.. It could happen if everyone gets behind it..

I have also never understood the promotional activities of R.C.A.Here in the U.S. I have seen little promotion on the 2nd to none c.d. The only way I knew it was happening was thru the Elvis network.The same with Rubbernecking,where is all the promo hype that abounded with Conversation? R.C.A should get down on their knees to thank Elvis for all he did for that company,and their thanks as always is lousy promotion.Even in the days when Joan Deary was in charge of promotingElvis material which should never have been released.Elvis should have started his own record company and let R.C.A HANG OUT TO DRY.

Yes that's right, enters the UK chart at #4. This has to be seen as a good entry considering the lack of any promotion at all here in the UK. Compared to the E1 release this one seems to be given the poor relation treatment by RCA. Perhaps they are saving up the promotion to try and cash in on the Christmas market. Then again perhaps not. You would think after all these years of being a fan I would know better than try to understand the working's of RCA. Oh well. On a side note I'll be interested to see the sales figures for this week.
