Yes Jim the 68 special is number 1 in the UK music dvd charts and its number 19 in the top 40 dvds and video charts in the uk as well. Hope that helps.

Its great to see that the 68 special has got to number 1 and has anybody seen the advert for these in the uk yet or have I missed it? All my children have bought Thats all right my daughters 19yrs and my twin boys are 18yrs and they think Elvis is great. So i dont think its anything to do with the age of people I think its the radio stations fault for not being a bit more versatile in there selections. No wonder the listening ratings are going down if certain radio stations are only playing one type of music.

Sorry, Wiz, but I have to disagree with the "under 25" comment. I teach elementary school and my grade fours this year (10 years old) love Elvis. I've been known to play the guitar and sing Elvis songs for my students and they love it every time. I'll say it again -- radio programmers these days are very short on imagination and daring. We need more "Dewey Phillips" in our world. He wasn't afraid to play a little song called That's All Right by a total unknown back in July of 1954!!! Music should always be broadcast in context -- therefore, playing classic Elvis or classic Beatles once in a while in between today's hits would actually enrich the radio audicence's experience, especially the under 25s. If I were a DJ at BBC 1 I would have played the Beatles' versions of Elvis songs, followed by Elvis' versions of Beatles songs ... how many kids today know that the Beatles were inspired by Elvis and he in turn was inspired by them???

great news. this is where he needs to be. no- 1. always . lets hope that Aloha gets to this position as well thats all right is in single charts. its no-2 - i believe . not bad for a song that was recorded by The King - 50 yrs ago. as for dvd - 68 comeback,, every one is accustomed to this, i guess. every one watched this special when it was transmitted on various channels on Tv in the past. So come on Fellow Fans... Lets get Elvis to Number One yet again, where he belongs

Yes that's a top ten hit again, and it can be a lot more. But for that you need airplay a strong video clip and lots of support from the record label itself. To gain younger peoples intrest in Elvis you need a remix, let's face it the music scene is to diverend now so you can not win the younger generation over otherwise. There is yet a possibilety " If i can dream", a good video clip and a song that is for al times. So why not make it the next single, good promotion for the new DVD sets also.

I´m very proud of being an Elvis fan. Sorry but I couldn´t help because here in Brazil they didn´t release the single yet. BMG again made a terrible work here, but as soon it releases here I will buy one or two every week. Come on there´s still time to see our man on number one... Best Regards

Fantastic news Elvis getting to number 3 in the uk charts with a 50 year old song. Its ashame they did not count all the sales they had for it cause it probably would have gone straight to number one.

brilliant, to be at number 3, i bought 6 copies as probably most people did. I'ts just a shame that a few 1000 copies kept it off the top, it still sounds so fresh. Maybe if they release the 'if i can dream video' then that will get our man to the top. Well done elvs, scotty and bill ( the fab 3 )

Lets be honest, who would have thought this would ever have charted so high. A phenonamel achievement. No remix, no dj, just pure class. Wasn'nt the last big Sun hit Hank Mizzells' Jungle Rock back in 76? Sam, I hope you're smiling man.

#3 this week, #1 next week. let's all go out and buy it again.

For everybody's info.... this week, the lowest units sold for the number 1 slot, and as you all know by now with Usher, it must be remembered that the Elvis single had sole distribution with HMV UK. To gain a the number 3 slot with minimal air play and no mass release is a major achievement. With regards to the marketplace the elvis single will not appeal to the under 25's. So Radio stations had a difficult decision.

Wonderful news. At the least, the publicity value is astounding! The success puts Elvis Presley's name right in front of the BBC Radio 1 DJs, AND more importantly, their listeners:-) Blue Moon of Kentucky, keeps on shining:-)
