    'An Afternoon In The Garden' - Latest Billboard Chart/Sales Info.

    'An Afternoon In The Garden' re-entered the Billboard 200 this week - at #177 - with 3,087 copies sold.

    (i) As of (late) October last year, the album had scanned a total of 194,552 units.
    (ii) A total of 306,183 units had been scanned in the US, as of last Sunday.

    --> Consequently, An Afternoon In The Garden sold/scanned approximately 112,000 copies in the past 9 months.

    To date, the album has spent 20 weeks on the Catalogue chart and 14 weeks on the Billboard 200. An Afternoon In The Garden is - with quite a margin - the best-selling Elvis album in 2011. Its chart performance and sales are - actually - better than the all the "new" Sony mainstream Elvis releases from the past ~3 years (including Viva Elvis & Elvis 75).

    Here is a short summary of how the album has performed on the US charts, since its - quite unexpected - appearance earlier this spring:

    This has always been my favourite officially released 'live' Elvis album. If it keeps up the trend of re-entering the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart then hopefully it will not be long before we see a new Gold record for The King.

    As I said on TMMB, imagine if they had promoted it? It might have reached the top 10 or better. Maybe they will see the opportunity in his live music now and put some marketing and ads behind it in 2012.

    Hi Viva,

    I agree entirely. It looks as though SONY are going to concentrate on the more expensive box set packages for the forseeable future e.g. 'Young Man With The Big Beat'. Sony believe they can make more money on such 'high end' releases than they can on cheaper 'general release' product as can be seen from the following article:
