Elvis album to create history

Los Angeles, Oct. 2 (Reuters): Twenty-five years after his death, Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, is about to do something he never managed in life — debut an album at No 1 on record charts around the world. According to industry watchers, Presley’s Elvis 30 Number One Hits compilation, which was released by Bertelsmann AG’s RCA Records on September 24, is poised to top the charts in at least 12 countries around the world.

Sales in the US alone are expected to hit almost 500,000 units in the last week, said a spokesman for RCA, noting it would be the first time an Elvis album ever debuted at No 1.

There already are more than a dozen Presley greatest hits compilations, but fans have been anticipating this CD thanksto a $10 million publicity push.
