First Quickpoll Of 2004

The results of the last quickpoll of 2003 are very clear. Not less than 84% of nearly 500 voters are looking forward to the CD with the working title "Anthology", the follow up to "ELV1S 30 #1 Hits" and "Second To None." The first question for this year is to find out if you expect 2004, the 50th anniversary of Elvis' professional recording career, to become a good "Elvis year".

The momentum gained in the past couple of years has already ensured 2004 will be an excellent year for Elvis Presley's reputation and his fans too. Enjoy the world-wide Birthday Celebrations!

Emiel Maier is absolutely right. We fans have always known that segment in the 68 Spec. is the first great material as a video. But back to a good Elvis year? It could be , if the ' Anthology ' is promoted the right way.
The 50th anniversay of Rock and Roll, the significance of Elvis in Sun Studio , the playing of "That's Allright Mama "around the world by the DJ's in July , all this should work well. Mary

I also strongly agree. Well organized promotion on grand scale, please. The artist of the previous century deserves no less. In 2002 Elv1s 30 #1 Hits was promoted all through South Africa on Billboards, in CD Retail shop windows, on TV ... everywhere. In 2003 not much for 2nd To None. One TV Advertisement on one channel late at night - to coinside with the TV Special "Elvis Lives". Too little, too"late". Let's in Two Thousand and Four do more!

A question that is going through my mind is whether BMG is thinking about releasing a single, to beef up Anthology.
But if and when they do, I advice them a song with enough filmmaterial of Elvis so they can come up with a proper video-clip. Personally I am thinking of that Guitar Man sequence from the "68 Comeback Special. Now it is diverted into little segments of the song, glueing the other songs together. Maybe it is a wise thing to make it into one proper version of Guitar Man and release that as the next single. (Maybe with some editing).

I agree , EPVOICE is wright, promotion and promotion.
And please RCA BMG focus on one good album this year.
We do not need more, keep something for years to come for the general public. We the fans have the FTD label, but even there the output is in my opinion to much.
And look at the sales of Rubbernecking in the US, look at the charts in Canada and the dance charts , i believe it could have been much bigger but we al know what the problem is, YES PROMOTION AND NOT ONLY FOR ONE OR TWO WEEKS. so do it right this time.

Well.. This has to be a coordinated and cooperative joint venture between E.P.E, BMG, and the music industry in general.. Radio stations, fans, the young generation, can all be favorably impacted if they pay attention. Things are at the crisis breaking point as far as pop culture is concenred, and it is time to resort back to the roots, and take a new direction... Lets get on it!!! Elvis is, was and always will be the King. The Worlds Music Royalty.

I certainly hope so~~~but it won't happen unless there is ample promotion for it. We Elvis fans are "in the know" but the general public won't know unless it is promoted extensively so that the word gets out that 2004 is the year to celebrate Elvis' enormous contribution to music & the impact he had & still has on music. Promotion! Promotion! Promotion!
