It looks like here in the UK we have compilation fatigue.
Not surprising when you consider the numerous Hits,Love song, Best Off,etc we've had. Maybe time to reconsider an E3. Certainly another remix could be seen as exploiting an old formula. Something which sadly has happened all too much with Elvis.

I don't understand why 2nd to None is not seeling as well as Elvis 30 #1 hits. It just doesn't make any sense. I think that 2nd to None much better songs on it. It could be that I am more partial to Elvis' later stuff, but I don't understand why it is doing this bad. Who know's, maybe around the holidays there will be a big buying spree.

The '2nd To None' chart run in the UK is appalling. It looks like this CD is only going to sell 100,000 units. Selling 100,000 units will give Elvis a gold
certification. However, there are other albums in the UK which have been released after Elvis's death that have reached Gold status and these albums had less publicity than 2nd To None. Some of the albums that reached Gold status are 'Elvis Presley - Ballads' and 'Presley - The All Time Greatest Hits'.
I can only presume that the song selection on 2nd To None was not very good. It is logical to assume that an album is not going to sell well if you have songs on it that have charted in the 30s & 40s.
BMG need to to research the current music market to determine what kind of music is in demand and then chose very carefully the songs that will be put on an Elvis compilation album. So far all BMG have done is put together songs which were minor hits with no clear theme linking the songs. Any Tom,Dick and Harry can do this.
