October 28 - Chart Topping Releases

The "The Wonder Of You" CD by Elvis Presley and the Royal philharmonic Orchestra entered the official UK Album chart at #1. This marks Elvis Presley's record-breaking 13th UK number 1 album.

Almost 40 years after his untimely passing, Elvis Presley is still the king of the Official Chart as new album The Wonder Of You earns him a historic 13th Number 1 this week. The second collection of orchestral re-workings of Elvis’ hits with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (following last year’s chart-topping, million selling If I Can Dream) shifted 63,500 to land straight in at Number 1. With these salesnumbers the album has already attained UK Silver certification.


The feat means Elvis has more Number 1 albums than any solo artist in the UK, overtaking Madonna’s 12 chart-toppers. Click here to look at Elvis’ complete Official Chart history. The Beatles hold the overall record for the most chart-topping albums in the UK, with 15 to their name.
