UK #1 Singles Box

The official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Great Britain & BMG are joining forces to promote the release of 18 individual Elvis number one singles, commencing weekly on 3rd January 05. The club will be mailing out 20,000 colour brochures within ten days encouraging members to buy the singles at major high street stores in an attempt to get each one to chart over the 18 week release period and beyond. "Although we will not be selling the singles - because we want every sale to count, we will be offering the first single which comes with a bolt on collector box, (which makes single one chart ineligible) and we want every member to have the opportunity to get these beautiful boxes, states Todd Slaughter."20,000 numbered CDs and 7,500 numbered 10" vinyl will be produced, more than sufficient to get Elvis into the Top Ten with each title, so it follows that there are two formats of boxes to cherish." Each single has both the original A and B side track, together with original US picture sleeve cover art. "It is an inexpensive way for Elvis fans to-once-and-for-all put Elvis ahead of all chart statistics, whilst at the same time collecting a beautiful limited numbered series which will no doubt become a future heirloom. We Elvis fans have access to his entire repertoire, and the "Follow That Dream" out-takes take us behind the scenes. Now we have something that is not only truly collectible, but a joy to the eye!"

Only 18 singles ? It is a very conservative chart; as far as I remember in the NME chart both In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds were no. 1

This is fantastic news. Total number of CD's and 10inch Vynils is 27,500 units per release. Last year "That's All Right" sold 18,000 copies in it's debut week to enter the UK charts at No.3! So, if these are being re-released on consecutive weeks from the first week in January until the end of April, then I anticipate, that Elvis could set the record for charting a re-issue of a former No.1 hit, at No.1. Only a handful of acts have had a re-issue of a No.1 hit, hit No.1 again. (Queen " Bohemian Rhapsody" springs to mind) I think at least half a dozen of these could do it again. DON'T BUY THESE FROM PLACES LIKE AMAZON, GET DOWN TO YOUR LOCAL HMV OR VIRGIN AND BUY THEM OVER THE COUNTER. ! Order them now to avoid disappointment

Next question: "to-once-and-for-all put Elvis ahead of all chart statistics" How will these singles do that?? They are already hits so they won't increase the # of hits, they may add about 17 to 20 weeks to the charts total. Is there something I am missing?

I'll be buying. I already have the first 17 on vinyl from 1977. Now the question: If I buy them from HMV on the internet will they count towards the UK charts?

Thank you Todd Slaughter- what a brilliant idea. Can't wait to lay my hands on the entire set. What a great way to celebrate the KING's 70th super Grand Birthday.
