Love, Elvis Not Selling Very Well Down Under

With the recent BMG album, "Love, Elvis" difficult to find in many record stores, BMG Australia has advised EIN it has shipped around 8,000 copies to retailers. This is well short of the 35,000 copies required for Gold certification, but not a surprising number given the album's full price staus and limited promotion.

That's the theory, Old Shep, but in reality, the thrill is short-lived as a new fan discovers all of the Elvis releases in the bins continually over-lap and recycle themes over and over. Literally that new fan will find *other* love song compilations with the pretty much the same songs in different order..! That may be a way to get them in, but they will be disappointed later. It's extremely short-sighted.

Though i can understand Gregs viewpoint "that it is a short sighted policy to keep on churning out nearly the same songs on compilations time after time"From a marketing point it is a gold mine! Remember there is always someone, many infact, who are unfamiliar with the music of Elvis Presley. I ran a record shop for more years than i care to remember.There were always customers who new of the name. And here i'm refering to the younger customer.But they had only heard one or two of the songs. Basically what i'm saying is there is an untapped market in the younger generation. I can understand fans being fed up with the same old songs. But to someone else it's an awakening

It has become real evident that mr:Jorgensens first aim is to put himself at focus on every new Elvis release. Putting his name on top above all others on the creditlist for changing or adding to a songlist. And by doing this taking credit for other peoples work in a way that no coulegue does, regarding A/R working with artists such as Dylan,Beatles,Stones etc. It is also remarkeble that in the wide range of beautiful artwork and photos, almost nothing has come up in exlusive digipack covers for original albums. Or digipack editions with SACD/DSD. Cheap!

Surprise, surprise... The short-sighted policy of endlessly repackaging the same old hits will not work forever.
