The headline asks a simple and demanding question.... "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?"
Elvis' most recent hit album, 'The Wonder of You' topped the UK charts and has spent many weeks sitting in the Top 5 or the Top 10, and now as the album starts to slip gently
down the charts towards the outer limits of the top 10, which is of course inevitable, but as friend to EER, Brian Quinn points out a rather odd situation that has been taking place
through Amazon UK.
"The Wonder of You" album has been a continuously strong seller in the UK, however...Brian sent in a real humdinger of a question regarding an issue he wanted to share with his
fellow fans. "What I really find difficult to understand is why Amazon (UK) at the beginning of this week would not sell "The Wonder Of You" unless one became a member of their
Club? And furthermore, why are they (Amazon UK) limiting sales to only three copies per order when any other artists, [e.g. Bowie, one can order 30, 40, 50 or more copies if you
wanted to. Very strange indeed."
Any idea anyone? If you can shed a light on this rather strange goings on then feel free to let us know on the show and we'll read share your explanation.
Until then, below is the UK Album chart as of now.
