From Music Week: Elvis is perfectly timed to catch a wave, not only from the current Presley singles reissues campaign but also from its suitability as a Valentine's Day gift. Not surprisingly, the album "Love, Elvis" debuts at number nine, after selling 23,995 copies. It's Presley's 107th hit album - the most by any artist - but the first to add to his total since Christmas Peace, which reached number 41 in both December 2003 and December 2004. "Love, Elvis" includes "Are You Lonseome Tonight" which looked likely to provide Presley with his fourth number one single in five weeks when it claimed a commanding midweek lead but despite registering the highest weekly sale yet for an Elvis Presley reissue - exactly 28,500 - it failed to deliver, having its initial 14,318 lead over Eminem's Like Toy Soldiers turn into a deficit of 996 by the end of the week. "Are You Lonesome Tonight" topped the sale of previous Presley reissues because BMG has belatedly scrapped its decision to make them limited editions. With new stock available, "One Night/I Got Stung" and "Jailhouse Rock" rebound 40-26 and 57-27 respectively, while "A Fool Such As I" falls only 20-22 but last week's number one, "It's Now Or Never", still takes a dive, sliding 1-14.
Like Toy Soldiers provides Eminem with back-to-back number one singles for the second time in his career. The second single from his current album Encore, it sold 29,496 copies last week - less than half the 63,312 tally which won Encore's introductory single Just Lose It the singles crown 13 weeks ago. [...] Brian McFadden and Delta Goodrem's Almost Here was also in close attendance, and managed to sell 25,751 copies to debut at number third on the singles chart. [...]
