Monday Chart And Sales Updates

March 20, 2006 | Other
The "Heartbreak Hotel" single enters the Australian ARIA singles chart at #37 this week. this entry gives Elvis his 120th Australian charting single. The single had previously reached No.3 in August 1956, and was again a minor chart hit in January 1972 when it was re-released along with the tracks 'Don't Be Cruel' and 'Hound Dog', where it reached No.81. This is the second Elvis single to have charted on a third occassion, the other being 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' which charted in 1960, 1982 and 1987.

And for some different Elvis sales news; EPE has told Elvis Insiders members that the Elvis Celebriduck has sold out more quickly than any of the other ducks in the Celebriduck collectible line and, we are hearing, they have become a much sought-after collectible (and coming soon ... the '68 Comeback Duck).

Oh for heavens sake - EPE have no integrity. I hope that the 68 comeback duck dies from bird flu!

I thought EPE wanted to protect Elvis' image but yet they sell out to this Duck crap.It looks like a bloated Elvis, which is what they dont want the public to see. That has been their main reason for not releasing "Elvis in Concert" on video 30 years later now.Yah, nice job of protecting Elvis' image>>>those ducks are appalling and a complete embarassment.

I'll drink to that! We need carefully chosen, well thought and high quality Elvis related products. No more ducks. Lets hope that that the bird flu is not the only way to get rid of them...

Crap like this duck is what's making Elvis' image look like a clown to the general public. Is this part of EPE's stategy in "protecting his image"? With this stupid duck, it looks like dollar signs takes priority over protecting his image. If they wanted to present Elvis image with integrety, they would not endorse trash like this duck.
