Elvis Presley: 50 Australian Top Ten Hits 1956-1977
Sony Music Entertainment will celebrate the 75th anniversary of The King's birthday in style with the release of
Elvis Presley: 50 Australian Top Ten Hits 1956-1977 in Australia on January 8, 2010.

This double CD set is the first ever Elvis Presley Australian hits compilation. Together with the 50 hit songs, an 18
page booklet containing specially written liner notes and images of original RCA releases, and CD label art inspired
by his first album release, the set provides a unique insight into Elvis Presley's popularity in Australia, a country
where he managed an incredible twenty-year streak of placing hits on the singles chart.

Although Elvis never travelled to Australia, it was, and remains, one of his most successful territories outside of the
United States. From 1956 to 2006, he spent 1,780 weeks in total with 120 entries on the Australian Singles Chart. He
accumulated a total of 61 weeks at No.1 with his 14 #1 hits and had 48 Top 10 singles, with some of these being
'double A sides', thus taking his tally to over 50.

Fifty of these Top 10 Hits are featured on this compilation.

Expect not only the well known hit songs, but also many that are unique to Australia.

Elvis Presley's success is not only measured in sales numbers and #1 hits but a unique combination of the right time,
the right moves and the right look. His impact on popular music and popular culture continues to be felt across all
generations around the world. As we approach Elvis' 75th birthday on January 8, 2010, we toast his successes and
reflect on his enormous impact on what we now call popular music.
For the fans who are interested in this CD, you can order it here.
