Industry = Media

Press Release Summary = Elvis Presley, U2, BMG, British Music Charts February 2005.

Press Release Body = The late Elvis Presley currently holds places 2, 14, 22, 26 and 27 on the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart and 9th place on the Official UK Top 40 Album Chart with "Love, Elvis", a compilation CD.

Three of the singles by Elvis went straight to Number 1 on the above chart.

Others would have too. BUT. For reasons beyond mortal comprehension B M G the record company did not issue enough of the singles to meet the extraordinary demand.

British Newspapers responded to angry Elvis fans from all over the UK who were searching in vain for the rare singles. Rumours of Chart Rigging circulated.

This very morning the writer picked up two of the Numbered singles in a HMV shop in Ireland! Number 28911 on the classic, "It's Now or Never", and 29006 on, "One Night".

How many more were released too late to impact on the charts?

Elvis' 1961 chart topping, "Wooden Heart", re-released on Monday 7th February 2005, is up against U2's latest single release. Elvis fan Bono of U2 could be forgiven for saying, "Elvis U1".
