Chart comments:

Joining Ed Sheeran as the act with most albums in the chart are The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Christmas With Elvis & The RPO – their third album adding newly constructed recordings to archive vocals from Elvis Presley – rockets 121-6 (29,606 sales) to surpass the No.22 position in which it debuted and previously peaked seven weeks ago following the release of a deluxe edition which increases the track count from 13 to 17. The similarly-styled A Love So Beautiful, on which they embroider and enhance tracks by Roy Orbison moves 7-9 (22,257 sales) on its fourth week in the Top 10, while A Brand New Me – on which they augment classic Atlantic label recordings waxed between 1968 and 1973 by Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin – debuts at No.61 (3,116 sales). Brand New Me is 75-year-old Franklin's 13th Top 75 album, while Christmas With Elvis & The RPO becomes Presley's 51st Top 10 album (53rd if reissues are included) – more than any other act.

The December 2017 issue of the UK "Elvis: The Man And His Music" magazine is out. This issue contains an interview with Ernst Jorgensen entitled "The Future of Follow That Dream with Ernst Jorgensen". The good news, the label will continue :-) His  main points were:
1. FTD will not be closing in 2019
2. The 'Classic Albums" series is nearly complete but there are more to come, noting 'Aloha' and 'Madison Square Garden' are still to be done.
3. Expanded "complete session tapes" releases are being considered

4. Plenty more soundboards to come
