ELVIS SMASHES OWN RECORD!
Advance Sales Sensation!
YES, he has done it again!
Advance orders for Elvis’s latest recording, “Surrender,” already total more than 431,000 copies.
The fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of this waxing, which appeared in America last March, but copyright difficulties have held it back until now.
In his review DAVID GELL assures readers that it has been well worth waiting for.
Another interesting snippet about Elvis is the fact that his bodyguards – YES BODYGUARDS! – earn a cool £2,500 per year for protecting their valuable boss from all dangers. We are sure there would be no shortage of applicants for such a position – even if there was no pay attached!
