That's really cool. A killer CD in every respect. The audience response when he appears on stage is amazing. It's a wonder the wave of sound didn't knock him over.

This post also made me think how I'm surprised the original MSG show hasn't been redone yet. Lots of room for sonic improvement there.

Has the Duets cd charted this year?

It continues to appear on the Seasonal Albums Chart but without having a subscription to Billboard Magazine one cannot see online beyond No.25. However its sales continue to increase and as of 6th November, 2011 it had sold 455,090 copies according to Soundscan. One would have thought SONY should have pushed this one, made a display in the Retail Stores and 'shipped' a few more thousand copies, especially as it is so near an RIAA GOLD Award. But then we are talking about SONY!!!

I have seen it in Walmart for $7.00 this year-but no large display its mixed in with all the Christmas music and all the other Elvis Christmas releases.
I agree this should be pushed when its so near the Gold total. It really should not take much pushing to start with since many may have missed its release last season.

$7.00 is a good price. It's a shame it does not have a stand on its own. Talking of SONY how about this one:

'Elvis By The Presleys' (Double Album) spent 9 weeks on the Billboard 200, during this time-period the album scanned just over 200,000 copies. This figure was reached just before the 4th quarter of 2005, thus, one could imagine it sold a few copies during the holiday season too.

So how come that, to this day - 6 years later - the album has yet to be certified GOLD. Well, either it has yet to ship 250,000 (it must be very close to 250k) or it doesn't meet the criteria for a Multi-Disc Album certification. To meet the RIAA criteria, multi-disc albums are required to have a minimum running time of 100 minutes. "Elvis By The Presleys" total running time is believed to be 99minutes and 27 seconds (99:27). It makes you wonder who is minding the store!!!

You would think that Sony would have found another 33 seconds of anything-in order to meet the criteria for multi-disc albums...
By the same token it sold at multi-disc pricing-and the RIAA says "doesn't matter its short 33 seconds" its a lose lose for Elvis totals.

'An Afternoon In The Garden' drops from 156 to 176 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart for w/e 10th December, 2011.

'It's Christmas Time' drops from 78 to 116 on the Top 200 Album Chart and drops from 10 to 24 on the Catalog Album Chart.

'Elvis Christmas' drops from 96 to 107 on the Top 200 Album Chart and drops from 16 to 18 on the Catalog Album Chart. It also drops from 24 to 25 on the Holiday Album Chart.

'Blue Christmas' debuts on the 'Holiday Songs' Chart at No.21 and is No.48 on the Digital Catalog Songs chart - with 5448 downloads this week making an overall total of 399207 downloads.

Although these latest placings appear disappointing in fact the opposite is the case. 'An Afternoon In The Garden' sold 4154 copies last week and this week sold 7492 copies (the highest weekly sales tally since entering the Catalog Album Chart). 'Elvis Christmas' sold 6520 copies last week and this week sold 12,037 copies. 'Its Christmas Time' sold 8393 copies last week and this week sold 11,491 copies. During heavy sales periods e.g. Christmas, Catalog Albums will always fare less well chartwise as newer albums will take precedence with shoppers. However, sales of the Catalog Albums will also rise due to their exposure to more customers online and in store as has happened this week.

By a quick glance count-there are about 1.3 million album sales listed here that are not included in Elvis's official album total for the US the
"Elvis Christmas" would be the only certified total in his RIAA count-(excluding the 99, 362 above the 500,000 certification total)
I wish they would just count total record sales-even if uncertified-so many tens of millions of sales that are just sitting.:blink:

It is a double album and therefore under RIAA rules qualifies for double sales - so for their purposes it has sold 696,714 copies and already been awarded Gold status. However, it must be remembered we have no record of sales since the end of 2010 (until now) so the total should be considerably higher. One that could be in the frame for a Platinum Award in the not too distant future.

No news at present. The only indication available is that it is currently No.514 at Amazon (USA); 435 at Amazon (Germany) and 1,023 at Amazon (UK). However, this is not a real indication as to sales plus there is the standard version also being released.

Going on previous rate of sales for 'An Afternoon In The Garden' and 'The Essential Elvis' (2CD) I have made a conservative extrapolation and estimate their sales as of this week are:

'An Afternoon In The Garden' - 498,098 Units. Estimated GOLD qualification within 2 weeks.

'The Essential Elvis' (2 CD) - 972,734 Units (including double sales under RIAA rules). Estimated PLATINUM qualification around March, 2013.

The 'Christmas Duets' sales are difficult to predict but as of 8th September, 2012 were 490,322 Units.

Of course, as already stated these figures are merely guestimates.

I have come to the conclusion that Prince From Another Planet is not being released to many stores, Walmart, Target, K-Mart etc....I do not understand the logic of putting the package together and not using every avenue to sell it???

Hey good to have you back.

I agree, of all the money they "paid" the guy with the video and the putting the package together they have not tried to redeem their money back.

I'm shocked as well. With all the media coverage, even a promotional piece on CBS' The Morning Show with Jerry Schilling as guest. I guess we're seeing the same ole continued lack of respect from Sony that we saw with BMG back in the 80's and 90's. (n) Some things never do change.

I think Brian Quinn may have given the answer-Sony may have special projects for Elvis, but they are intended for we fans.
They have put out several new $5 cds in Walmart, like Elvis Uncovered and a $20 large cd set of Elvis film music-but have made little effort to promote or sell the more expensive PFAP to anyone but fans.
Its a business decision-more than likely based upon the lack of large sales from the non fan demographic.....the catch 22 is that you can not increase sales from those non fans if you do not promote heavily.
But Elvis is pretty unique in that he is dead and still has a company willing to work on sets such as PFAP even though they know the sales will not go thru the roof, but over time will rack steadily upward.
Still a few copies in Walmart could not hurt...if they sell you put in a few more.....I'm sure there is a logic to "someone at Sony" but it alludes me.

I mentioned this in another thread-I was in Walmart a few days ago and saw a 40th Anniversary cd set for the MSG shows-the original album and the Afternoon show-but it had no DVD? IMO this whole 40th Anniversary for MSG has been truely botched......starting with the $5 Afternoon in the Garden Walmart release in 2010, then little lead up marketing for the Prince From Another Planet...then not having copies of PFAP in all Walmart, Target, large record stores etc.....now to add insult to seeming stupidity-they have another 40th Anniversary set for MSG in Walmart for $11.99 but without the DVD???
I do not understand this marketing at all.

As a point of interest, Jimi Hendrix’s 'People, Hell And Angels' album enters The Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at No.2. This puts him back in the top five forty two and a half years after he died at age 27. No other artist in chart history has cracked the top five this long after his death. Elvis is in second place. 'Elvis: 2nd To None' debuted at No.3 in October 2003, a little more than 26 years after his death.

Brian am I reading that correctly the DVD Elvis on Tour has only sold 12,699 units so far since it was released??? If so I am astonished at how few it has sold.
If that is correct-you can see why Warners is not very interested in spending money to work on all the outtakes for a possible release.

The figures are correct but this is for the re-release version with 'All Shook Up' instead of Johnny B. Goode as the opening sequence.

That with Elvis On Tour is so sad to read and I have no words to it. What is wrong with the Elvis-Fans. Elvis On Tour must become a topper, so that MGM releases outtakes and The Lost Performes on DVD.

KPM
09-11-2013, 07:25 PM
My thinking exactly-if Elvis fans are not buying it (and the sales figures show they are not) then you see why no real money is spent to really clean up digitally the outtakes in their vaults.
All the outtakes that have been released in the last 10-12 years from TTWII and EOT, have only helped to suppress any real effort to spend money or time on such as project.
Each time some effort is spent, it seems the sales do not meet expectations for us or for the producers of the projects and so new projects are harder to bring to the table that require more than new artwork for the covers.
