$$$$$ Elvis' $ales figures at $un $$$$$
When he came to sell the contract to RCA, Sam Phillips made some handwritten notes totalling up the sales of the five Elvis singles.
These notes were published in one of Ger's books.
This is what they revealed:
Sun 209 That's All Right/Blue Moon of Kentucky - total = 101,578
Sun 210 Good Rockin' Tonight/I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine ... - total = 69,232
Sun 215 Milkcow Blues/You're a Heartbreaker - total = 51,179
Sun 217 Baby Let's Play House/I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone ... - total = 91,906
Sun 223 Mystery Train/ I Forgot To Remember... - total = 47,029note:
Sam Phillips was allowed to carry on selling SUN 223 for the Whole of DECEMBER 55 and into January 1956 by RCA,
and with the RCA extra publicity, probably added a good few more Discs to this List....(Thanks to Colin.B for re-printing this Info)
