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%

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
