Another Elvis Hit From Beyond the Grave

 

05 January 2005

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."
