Presley's Label Apologises To Furious Fans

LATEST: ELVIS PRESLEY'S record label have finally agreed to release all the late rocker's singles - after fans accused the company of rigging the British singles chart, so Presley's re-released hits all hit the number one spot.

All 18 of the JAILHOUSE ROCK star's UK number one singles are being re-released in successive weeks, in a bid by SONY/BMG to cash in before the 50-year copyright protection on sound recordings expires on his earlier hits across much of Europe.

Hoards of Presley fans have complained the singles are unobtainable - since only 20,000 copies of each song are being released, in a ploy to ensure each CD is sold out by the time the next song hits the shops, maximising the chance of securing the Number one spot.

But Sony/BMG have apologised to fans, and are making amends, by dispatching all of Presley's songs.

A spokesman for the label says, "In reaction to fans' comments and stock availability, the company has decided to make all Elvis singles available in non-limited, non-numbered editions."
