Elvis Presley’s highly popular recordings sold in the Millions from 1953 to the day he died in 1977, and beyond.
Once his fans first fell in love with his voice, his style and appearance, his popularity grew, faster, and further, than most singers before him. The sale of his recordings reflected that. They raced up the Music Charts, all the way to Number 1, often. His live appearances made young women scream before the Beatles’ teeny-boppers ever thought of reacting with a deafening wall of high-pitched hysteria.
Elvis Presley became a true, icon, of the Music, TV and Movie Entertainment industry that hasn’t been matched since. Even during the so-called, British Invasion of bands like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Dave Clark 5, etc., Elvis Presley was still “The King”, acknowledged as such by the bands and singers sharing the Music Charts, Sales and Popularity during those magic years.
