Following is a list of the 141 Elvis Presley albums, singles and extended-plays whose American sales, as of November 2003, have received gold, platinum or multi-platinum designations from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Sales requirements for gold and platinum status have changed through the years. This list of certifications is based upon current standards: 500,000 copies for a gold single or album, 1 million copies for a platinum single or album.  For the RIAA to award gold or platinum certifications, an artist's record company must submit sales figures and request the certifications.

RCA Records continues to document Elvis' ongoing record sales and continues to research past sales and seek appropriate RIAA certifications. This listing will be updated whenever there is new information. (For double or multiple disc albums/CD packages, each disc's sales are counted. For instance, a 5-disc box set goes gold after selling 100,000 sets as 5 discs X 100,000 sets sold = 500,000 discs sold. ) 0

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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.
