The world's most successful deceased musician has another hit on his hands.
Elvis Presley, who died 27 years ago, is outselling the current UK number one artist Steve Brookstein with a re-released version of 1957's 'Jailhouse Rock'.
The single has been released as part of a campaign to celebrate what would have been Elvis' 70th birthday this weekend, with 18 of his number one hits to be re-released each week in Britain.
A representative of Elvis' record company said the release is: "the most ambitious singles release campaign in the history of the UK record industry" - with 'One Night' and 'A Fool Such As I' up next for re-release in the coming fortnight."
