This release is aimed for the general public, but do they recognize ELvis enough if they see only half his face and half a "2"? There is nothing more on the cover, so they might not even bother.

In the U.K. and Canada they have a cover that really looks like the sequal E2 is to E1, that will trigger people at least to have a look to see what is new on the CD they own part one of already.

We have to remember that last year alot of free publicity was in EPs favor due to all the attention paid to the 25th anniv. of his death. BMG surely must have figured that in to there promotions for this Album/single. At least I hope they did. We can help by requesting the single on the pop stations. The only way it will get played is if enough people make it relevent to program directors. I talked to one (via e-mail) and he told me this. If young people are given a chance to hear it enough-it could be big. If I had worked on the video and decided as BMG did, to go for a retro-late 60s early 70s look. I would have asked Mike Myers to appear as Austin Powers and add good humor to the video to attract MTV/VH-1 to play it. This would have given the exposure the song needs and is not getting.

Elvis is known for having the best and most loyal fans in the world. Why can't BMG utilize us in the promotion process? The main thing is to bring attention to a new release - like 2nd to none - out to the public. Create a web page where one can download a promotion poster and fans could easily just put them up where they live. I am sure a lot of us would do so (I would!). Secondly, 2nd to none is highly relevant, no matter how many copies that are sold: The sound is just phenomenal, just listen to If I Can Dream, it's a new song! I want a number three: Elvis from 69' on the cover, Let Yourself Go as the remix, several songs from the latter part of his career (undiscovered among the public) and the fans and BMG - together - promoting the product.

Last year there was so much more publicity on TV! I remember lots of TV ads about the 31 #1 CD. With all the video as well as music of Elvis, they could sure put together a great ad.
If they can have a half-hour ad on TV about the latest food blender or cooker, and sell a lot of them, they could sure sell a lot of 2nd to None CD's with a big ad campaign.
I like Clay Aiken, but you put him beside Elvis, and there you go---Elvis really is 2nd to none. Clay has a nice voice, but Elvis has a great voice. That's the difference.

I know that "Elvis 2nd to None" has not gotten that much of a push in the States, but I ordered from the Wal-mart website because they were giving out extras on the Cd if you bought from them. This past weekend I drove to my nearest Wal-mart store to see how things were selling there, and I was totally shocked at what I saw. There were at least 25-50 Cd's in the shelf, but there was not even one poster and/or in store poster declaring the CD and the extra's that were on it. So I do agree that we should be happy that after 26 years Elvis is even in the charts, but I still believe that this Cd could have been so much more with some promotions being done in stores and more on TV.
