Brits braced for Elvis' 70th birthday
Updated: 2004-11-30 14:41

The U.K. arm of RCA Records will launch an ambitious singles release campaign next year to mark the 70th anniversary of Elvis Presley's birth on Jan. 8.

Late pop star Elvis Presley
RCA will reissue each of Presley's 18 U.K. No. 1 singles weekly, in chronological order, as limited edition CDs or 10-inch vinyl discs. The campaign will begin Jan. 3 with "All Shook Up" and "Jailhouse Rock" and will end April 25 with the 2002 JXL vs. Elvis hit remake "A Little Less Conversation."

"All Shook Up" comes with a box that can hold all 18 singles in either format; this makes it ineligible for the U.K. singles chart under current rules. All other singles in the series have the potential to reach the chart.
