The results to-date - at week five - mirror in some ways those for the Elvis Presley : 50 Australian Top Ten Hits 1956-1977. While 'Elvis By Request' has a better first two weeks (#4 & #9), and an average of 20.4 from the five weeks, the 'Top Ten Hits' has a better 3rd to 5th weeks with an average of 21.2 from its first five weeks.

However this is for interest only, such statistics can be ms-leading. It is much harder to obtain a high chart position in August than in January due to there being a LOT more titles being released. EBR has the potential advantage of still being 'current' for Christmas sales, and Sony do have planned promotions in November to give the album a boost in sales and momentum into December, something 'The Top Ten Hits' did not have.

The relevance of each state

Western Australia [WA] (10%) and South Australia [SA] (7%) have much smaller populations (see below) than [QLD] Queensland and the other combined states of [NSW/ACT] and [VIC/TAS].

So these two states have a much smaller impact on total sales, and therefore the national chart.

This explains why with the much lower chart position in [WA] the national chart result was still No. 4.

In addition Western Australia [WA] is a huge part of Australia in land mass, as you can see from the image below. so making advertising even less viable. Clearly Sony do not do a lot based on the results we present for both Elvis By Request The Australian Edition CD and Elvis Presley : 50 Australia Top Ten Hits 1956-1977.

Population per Australian State and/or Territory

  1. [NSW] New South Wales 7,247,700 32.23%

  3. [QLD] Queensland 4,513,000 20.7%
  4. [WA] Western Australia 2,387,200 10.61%
  5. [SA] South Australia 1,645,000 7.31%
  6. [TAS] Tasmania 511,700 2.28%
  7. [ACT] Australian Capital Territory 370,700 1.64%
  8. Northern Territory 232,400 1.03%
  9. Australian Antarctic Territory 1,000 0.0%
  10. Jervis Bay Territory 495 0.0%
