I have been campaigning all year with Scott Williams of EPE to put pressure on SONY to get this album released as sales were so near to 10 million. Scott was not aware of the situation and a few weeks ago promised to get in touch with his SONY contact to get the album certified Diamond and re-released. It looks like a word in the right place has payed off.

About time. Why could this not have been done in time for Elvis Week, or held off till his birthday? Anyway, hopefully there will be more diamonds and platinums from old sales.

And they're still counting, the full story is in the booklet with Christmas Peace.

Well the original 1957 classic is not only Elvis' biggest selling album in the fifties, but the biggest selling album of the fifties. Some figures quoted reckon "That each of the eight songs have sold more than fifteen million copies alone in the US"

Is this his biggest seller overall? I would think it should have surpassed Blue Hawaii by now. Or is it 30 #1s?

Great news this!! I'd love to know how many copies all the different packaging and reissues of these Christmas recordings have sold, it must be a phenomenal, mind boggling amount.
