Elvis Presley has been famous as ‘the king of rock and roll’ and has more UK number albums in his kitty than any other male solo music artist.

Elvis Presley’s all-time hits include Heartbreak hotel, Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, Love me Tender, Too Much, All shook Up, Teddy Bear, Paralyzed, Party, Jailhouse Rock, Don’t, wear my ring around your neck, hard headed woman, king creole and one night.

Here’s Elvis Presley’s big hit- ‘If I can Dream’.

Elvis Presley’s former Wife Priscilla Presley received the award on the star’s behalf and quoted that Elvis always wanted to do this album and would have been so pleased to know that he still has a huge fan following and they adore his music till date. Priscilla was glad that Royal Philharmonic Orchestra have put up this album and helped them all realize an unfulfilled dream.

The top 5 UK albums have got a number of biggies too streaming up for Rod Stewart’s ‘Another Country’, Guy Garvey’s ‘Courting the squall’, Ed Sheeran’s ‘X’ and Jess Glynne’s ‘I Cry When I Laugh’.
