The single "Devil in Disguise" is the highest new entry on this weeks UK singles chart at #2. The other "old timer" Tony Christie remains steady at #1. Elvis' previous re-issue single "Return to sender" dropped to #37 from last week's #5.
Here is the latest Music Week Chart analysis:
Christie's (Is This The Way To) Amarillo single suffered a 49.9% dip in sales to 130,700 but still outsold nearest challenger Elvis Presley's similarly parenthetical (You're The) Devil in Disguise by a margin of almost exactly five to one. Overall, the singles market slipped week-on-week by 29%, to 553,522. Even so, last week was the third biggest week of the year for the format. With only Crying In The Chapel, The Wonder Of You and Way Down to go in the Presley 70th birthday reissue campaign, (You're The) Devil In Disguise - which sold 26,279 copies last week - provides him with a top five debut for the 14th week in a row. When the record topped the chart 42 years ago, it was during a rich vein of chart domination by British artists - out of 28 number ones from the start of 1963 to October 1964, 26 were by homegrown acts, one by an Irish act (the Bachelors) based in the UK, and the other was Devil In Disguise.
