No,it's not,and that'a why they're cheating Elvis,kingster,because they EXCLUDE 1956,1957,and 8 months of 1958,in August of 1958,Elvis was already in in the Army,that's like taking 1964,1965,and 1966 away from The Beatles,and I,as an Elvis aficionado,find this a VERY unfair thing that BILLBOARD magazine is doing to Elvis,PERIOD,but I can't say I'm surprised,peace out.

Hell, while they're at it, why don't they go back to the 20s, 30s and 40s then!

I started out singing in boxcars in the 50's but never was given credit until 1959 for my ability to entertain drunks and be a singing drunk myself.RIAA never reports my success I had in 1961 up tp now. They never want to give old Elmer a break damn it now redneck Toby Kieth has stold my idea and is singing drinking songs and getting all the credit damn him.

What do you think the most visionary brands are? I conducted a survey about this question. Please help me finishing my study at the University of Amsterdam by willing to participate in my survey. It just takes 10 minutes.

Well when I drink I drink only visionary brands.I started out with cheap wines like Thunderbird and Mogan David you know cheap brands but after I became better known I moved onto better brands that are more visionary like Captain Morgan and Hose Cuervo.Yep the more expensive visionary brands are worth the cost because they give me more of a buzz so I can entertain better. Now I'm a singing visionary drunk.

You were talking about the KISS album Destroyer,which I bought many years ago and thought was a so so album,but here are my favorite KISS albums,they are,in no particular order,KISS ALIVE I,1975,KISS ALIVE II,[with the best track b eing Ace Frehley's `Shock Me',with Ace's amazing and explosive guitar solo ending,what a talent],`HOTTER THAN HELL',their self titled debut album `KISS',1973,with the great track `COLD GIN',`DRESSED TO KILL',1975,with another 2 great tracks,`ROCK BOTTOM'and ,of course,their signature song,`ROCK AND ROLL ALL NIGHT[and party every day],and more recently[1998],`PSYCHO CIRCUS],I wasn't a fan of their makeupless years,and without Ace Frehley and Peter Criss,I don't consider them the REAL KISS,peace out.

I once asked KISS if I could be their opening act but they said no since I don't wear silly make up. Too bad Boxcar Willie died because he was willin to let me tour with him and Jim beam was going to be our sponsor for that tour.My next record is going to be called all dressed to drink. Toby Kieth better not try to copy me or I'll whip his redneck butt all over the South.

Rant Rave then settle down have another drink yep that's my motto. I've never tried to sing heavy metal but I can sing the empty bottle blues or boxcar hobo shuffle.I have rode the rails sang in jails and have sang in alley ways and that helped shape my career. I'm trying to get Wallmart to let me sing in their parking lots and carry my next CD I put out. Elmer sings the discount drinking songs.

Elvis live 69 - On Stage 70 - MSG 72-Aloha 73-Memphis 74-In Concert 77 All live albums that sold well . 1977 in concert is the worst( Elvis wasnt very healthy)but it still has some good performances.

And about Elvis's live albums of the 70's,Jim,`ON STAGE,FEBRUARY,1970'was a terrific album,so was `ELVIS LIVE AT THE INTERNATIONAL HOTEL',`ELVIS LIVE AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN'was so so,`ELVIS LIVE ON STAGE IN MEMPHIS'was a good album,with a rare performance of his 50's gem `My Baby Left Me',and I liked `ALOHA FROM HAWAII',the CD transferred to stereo from the poor quality quadrophonic[4 channels] 1973 release,the difference in quality of sound from quad to stereo is HUGE,and I thought `ELVIS IN CONCERT'was an OK album,and is important because it captured some of Elvis's final performances in concert,an important historical release,peace to you and happy thanksgiving,Jim,peace out

They are both number one-Elvis was number one as a single act-The Beatles number one as a group. No proof needed just the facts Like Sargent Joe Friday always said just the facts Mam.

Oh dear, Rick.

"And about Elvis's live albums of the 70's,Jim,`ON STAGE,FEBRUARY,1970'was a terrific album,so was `ELVIS LIVE AT THE INTERNATIONAL HOTEL'

Can anyone spot the mistake here?

No 1971,1975 or 1976 live elvis album regular release. I think every year of live shows ,Elvis and band sounded a little different.
