WOW!! (Brian, your top 10 prediction was spot on). Has there been any promotion yet? Haven't seen any. A lot of promotion for the beatles cd. Is it likely the program on ITV will be released on DVD?
Hi fellow fans of the king, if you go to the f.e.c.c. board (if you don't know What it is, just google ;fecc, and it will be one of the first hits), you can find a link to the tv show ! under the tread; the nations favorite Elvis songs, and let me tell you it is GREAT !! And for all of you British fans, stop just hoping that it will sell well and start helping it sell instead ! buy at least one copy for yourself (and maybe a few for presents , Christmas is just around the corner, or maybe you known a young kid who you think would benefit from listening to some real music :), ). AND write or call your local radio station and request a song from the cd, preferably one of the songs that is not on the 30 number one hits, so that those people that own that one, will also see the point in buying this cd (that could be songs like Always on my mind, King creole, if I can dream, Viva las Vegas or Am. Trilogy ), we need the ball to keep rolling now ! TCB, and lets show the U.K. people and the world that Elvis still counts and that he can beat the Beatles (also after the first two weeks).
Hello alanfalk, went on the fecc board and there was nothing on Elvis
What an achievement! Presley in 2013, 35 years after his departure, is still a bestselling act in the UK, among the greatest artist from today like Lady Gaga and Eminem!
How great is this! What would Lady Gaga and Eminem think, when they see this chats?!
Only UK, home of the most loyal Elvis Presley fans in the World, treats the King with such passion! Long Live Elvis Presley and Long live his UK fans!

Hi Fm , go to page 12 on the tread "the nations favorite Elvis songs" and go 2/3 down the page, a Guy named ep lovin (or something like that) have put a link to the show under his post. Hope this helps :)
Having to chose between Lady Gaga or Celine Dion is hard. Gaga is the wild type and she loves to show some skin. Dion the more mature and expereinced I guess.. Difficult...
Yes, Elvis number 5 in the UK album charts... very good to see. What tickled me was "Cliff Richard" with his new Rock n Roll cd took the previous Elvis position at number 7 .. Ah just like the good ole days LOL !
Right down amazing that 'he' manages to hit the top of the charts decades after his demise. Obviously his music is timeless, appealing to younger generations too.
