Last week, the 2CD compilation album ‘The Essential’ re-entered the Swedish album chart at #22. This week, the album rises from #22 to #17. That is the best position the album has been listed on the chart since it left the Top10 back in September 2007! The album has spent five weeks on the chart so far this year, which adds to a total of 34 weeks since its debut in 2007. ‘The Essential’ initially peaked at #1, and stayed in the Top10 for 8 consecutive weeks (#1 for two weeks). It is currently certified Gold in Sweden.

I Love the Sweden CD-Album cover better than the USA version. Great News that Elvis is on the charts.

How many units did this released havr to sell to be certified "Gold" in Sweden? I hate the cover.

The cover is unimaginative and was used on much cheesier compilations in the past. This looks cheap. The US cover was far superior.
