If I could give those that don't get it, a link to a news item on Elvis' record sales from tomorrow, or from the next day, or next week, I would (LOL), but for the moment this news item from today's number one netweok, worldwide, will suffice.

It is a well documented fact in its entirety through the RCA press clippings issued before his death, that he had sold over 500 million records worldwide in all formats through 1974. From August 16, 1977 to August, 1978 when RCA records was using the pressing plants of other record companies to keep up with public demand for his recordings, it is estimated that he sold over 300 million records worldwide. Moreover RCA announced in 1982 that Elvis Aron Presley had gone over the billion mark in record sales. To reiterate,a billion units in all formats, thus making him the greatest recording act in the history of pop music. bar none.

But thatīs fine to.
Because Iīm the only one smart enough to actually realize that elvis has never sold one billion albums.
But then again elvis fans are
more stupid then the scientologists out there.
Even Tom Cruise appears to be a true genius compared to elvis fans who just buys into this whole billion thing without a single claim that has or can be backed up in anyway.
Iīm sure Iīll piss some fans off as I tend to do when I post something.
But I donīt give a shit. This is my thread.
I post whatever I damn well please here.
Elvis has NOT sold one billion.

Wow such hostility.
Elvis did not sell a billion albums, but he did sell a billion plus units which includes:
Singles, EPs, 78s, albums, reel to reels, 8 Tracks, cassettes, CDs.
For US sales RCA/BMG/Sony have presented the RIAA with sales totals for ALL Elvis album sales in the US-not just those that have reached the RIAA levels of accredidation and the RIAA admits they are legitimate sales-but until each of the over 400 album reissues and releases since his death hit the level specified for Gold, Platinum, Multi-Platinum, those totals do not count.
Thus if a reissue is at 499,000 in sales those do not count toward the final accredited figures for Elvis album sales.
Right now his US sales alone for "accredited" albums is at 134.5 million adding in his unaccredited album sales and his US only total album sales is nearing 200 million-now add in his single sales in the US and you are nearing 300 million-for all units sold.
I billion plus units worldwide is a certainty.
