Note - (TEA) Track equivalent albums is a term used to describe a method of converting the download sale of individual songs (singles) into whole album numbers. In other words, every time ten units of a single are sold, those ten units are counted as one album sale. Track equivalent albums are considered a reliable means of gauging whether music fans are buying whole albums or are opting to buy single tracks instead.

When is RIAA going to give Elvis some more certifications and add to his total US album sales tally. It has been stuck on 134.5 million forever it seems

They should also give him a reward for the 50-100 million records that were sold in the year after his passing, as far as I know, they don't figure anywhere !!

First of all the RIAA are a bunch of hypocrites, how can he have just sold 134.5 million in the US when I have from a reliable source in the archives dept, this is today in history; February 25, 1961 Tennessee governor Buford Ellington and Memphis mayor Henry Loeb both declared this day "Elvis Presley Day". At a special luncheon at the Hotel Claridge, Elvis was presented by RCA with a diamond studded watch to honor record sales of more than 75 million. Sam Philips asked why Sun Records got so little recognition for Elvis ' success, reminding everyone that "RCA wouldn't have him if it wasn't for Philips." Elvis performed at the Memphis Charity Show, Ellis Auditorium, Memphis at 3.00 and 8.30 p.m. Attendance at the first show was 3,860 and at the second 6,540. The comedian George Jessel introduced Elvis in the evening as "one of the greatest singer-actors of this century." After the evening show Elvis hold a party at Graceland.
