Elvis: The 2005 comeback special!

FANS of a music legend are all shook up in a quest to buy the latest release from the superstar on sale in stores across Denbighshire. In celebration of Elvis Presley’s 70th birthday, his record label is reissuing all 18 of his number ones in chronological order.

The first re-release, Jailhouse Rock, went straight to number one and his fans were crying with joy in the chapel this weekend when One Night scooped the coveted honour of being the UK’s 1,000 top single.

The superstar’s success gives him the most number ones in music with a tally of 20, beating the Beatles who have 17. Fans are finding it difficult to get hold of a copy of this week’s release, A Fool Such As I, as many stores are carrying a limited stock of the single.

The Free Press has learnt that fans in Denbigh were forced to surrender their quest for the single in the town’s Woolworths branch as a devoted Elvis music lover snapped up the store’s supply of three copies on Monday morning. A spokesman for Woolworths confirmed the sale at Denbigh and added:

“Because it’s a limited edition the record company have published very few.

“We have had very few copies across the country. We are trying to get more copies into the stores this week.”

Elvis could make it an American trilogy of number ones this weekend with A Fool Such As I. Woolworths has been inundated with calls on how to get hold of the single, the spokesman said.

“It will almost certainly be number one on Sunday but it all depends on stock,” he said. “It all depends if another single comes in late due to the fact that Elvis has been hard to get hold of.”
