November 05, 2016 - Brian Quinn / VVN Music / Elvis Express Radio
The U.K.continues to see veteran artists continue to populate numerous spots on the album charts.
And rightly so, Elvis Presley is the biggest all them all for a second week in a row as his album, The Wonder of You drops from the top spot to No.2.
Elvis also has two other albums on the UK Top 100 albums charts with 'If I Can Dream' at No.50, and 'The Platinum Collection' is a New Entry at No.91.
Other veteran artists riding the UK album chart includes, Madness with their new offering at No.5, Phil Collins' The Hits is at No.7 and Robbie Williams' Greatest Hits returns to
the chart at No.9.
At No.11 is the brand new compilation from Roy Orbision, 'The Ultimate Collection'. It's his highest charting album in Britain since 2001's 'Love Songs' went to number 4.
Orbison actually has two debuts for the week with 'The Real Roy Orbison' opening at No.81.
Daniel O'Donnell makes his annual trip onto the charts, starting at number No.12, with 'I Have a Dream'. The Irish pop singer has put at least one album on the Albums list every
year since 1988 and has made the top twenty in every one since 1996 except 2001 and 2010.
LeAnn Rimes premiers at No.15 with 'Remnants', her best in ten years since 'Whatever We Wanna' went to the same position in 2006.
Black Sabbath opens at No.20 with 'Ultimate Collection', their second highest chart compilation ever in Britain. 2009's 'Greatest Hits' managed one spot better in 2009. In total, the
band has released eleven collections.
David Gray also has a new compilation, 'The Best of David Gray', which debuts at No.30. It is his fourth collection and second best on the charts after 'Greatest Hits' (2007 / #11).
At No.43 is the debut of 'Brotherhood of the Snake' by Testament. That is their best chart position in the U.K. in 27 years going back to 'Souls of Black' (1990 / #35).
