I'll tell you something,the big bang won't be next year but 2007. Thirty years after. I think BMG/Sony will hold back until then. I hope that an album will mark this ocassion which will explode together with a dvd. Coupled with Sillerman's commercial expertise, Elvis will be bigger than ever in the USA and worldwide. Hold your breath the best is yet to come in 2007.

It's a shame it has come to an end, but some real fantastic achievments have been made. So what is BMG going to do as a follow up. Well undoubtedly, there will be a 50th anniversary release of Hearbreak Hotel next April, but what about concentrating on the remaining Top 10 hits. There would be 35 to collect, but done with the original US artwork again would be brilliant. Releasing 2 a month would only take 18 months to get them all. The dilemna will be "do we want to see Elvis back in the charts with this lot?" If the answer is yes, then we'll be faced with the mass buying in the first week of release. Anything less will mean fractured sales over a longer period of time, thus lessening the chance of chart entries.

There is a man who has not been with us for almost 30 years yet he is still filling arenas across the UK this very week! And that same guy has dominated our singles charts for the past four months, because we fans believe that he is still worthy of our love and devotion. The pleasure that we all receive from sharing in his success is so wonderful that for as long as we all shall live we will continue support him. We should all thank each other for sharing this devotion which in turn has made the world sit up and take notice of Elvis Presley once again. Thank you thank you thank you!

Well done Elvis - you deserve it...Well done to the Fans that also cared - we too deserve it. This campaign has overcome a lot of negative vibe e.g. The EPE - BBC Dispute, the lack of stock on the shelves. What a wonderful and everlasting tribute...21 number ones and counting...still not out!

Well done Elvis and all the fans who have bought the singles, no other artiste (alive or dead) could have achieved this...a top 5 single every week this year so far!
Three cheers for The King and long may he reign!

I am overjoyed that Elvis has become the most successful artist of this millenium in the UK album and singles charts to date. However, I think that the last 3 singles have all been affected, in chart position terms, by the fact that no-one has been able to download them, or if they have they seem to be unqualifiable album tracks. This just shows how rubbish the new chart is, as a major artist from a major label can still be top three without apparently any downloads.
Nevertheless, well done to all the fans who bought real copies of the singles and made all this possible. A tribute to the man's endurability, especially when the singles were being sold on hype and not airplay or promotion. Long Live The King!

A pity not a no.1 but still a great record just like the others not getting to the top. The chart company has not really answered the question as to why there have been problems. Still I don't think the downloads would be anywhere big enough to qualify for a higher chart position.
