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!"
