As ALLC has gone top 5 and is the second highest new chart entry with a non EPE controlled video available are we to expect to see the record given a full shot on TOTP tomorrow-by rights it should be played and should be a relief to the BBC.Whilst delighted at the success of the promotion ,as in life so in death Elvis continues to be promoted in a crass,shortsighted and out of date manner truncating ,with inadequate promotion, what could be a fullscale comeback in the digital ere via remixes, use of tv ads etc or even duets with todays artists -how about it BMG

Yes the single sales may have not been the best, but I am sure Elvis would have attracted a lot more new fans if only he had got some radio play. A video would have been nice, but I suspect that the Peter Kay single would have had less of a hold on the charts if Elvis had been given his share of radio play. As given the chance to hear the music the public would have reacted in a positive manner. Perhaps a lesson for future singles.

Eddie White,i don`t think you should be so derogatory about the record `for lowest sales`,i`m sure you must know that these singles are limited,and were even more so for the 1st few releases.And got to the top in SPITE of the low numbers available,and no availability in shops etc
I guess you`re one of those who seem to gloss over The King`s positive records in favour of the more negative,..a shame! TCB

I've been keeping a record of first week sales for each single but I have the sales for "Crying In The Chapel" missing. Can anyone please give me the (first week) sales for this release. Thanks.

So he should with 17 records issued over as many weeks. Don't be over excited with the sales. Remember when these were initially release one record sold more than the entire collection. Singles sales are not worth a dime these days. This series has not done anything to capture new Elvis fans. What we got was more of the same. Nothing new and nothing to celebrate. Three no 1's folks out of 17 proves it. Not only that but sales that are ridiculously low. One thing, however, Elvis now holds the record of the least sales for a record to reach no.1.
