Richard, Presley reunited in charts

Richard, Presley reunited in charts

Cliff Richard is sharing a top-10 chart billing with rock legend Elvis Presley for the first time in 36 years.

With more than a dozen number one singles to his name, Cliff is no stranger to chart success.

But his entry at number seven in the album chart this week sees the two icons reunited for the first time since 1977, when Cliff charted at number five with 40 Golden Greats and Elvis placed eighth with Moody Blue.

Elvis's revived success in the UK is thanks to the recent release of The Nation's Favourite Elvis Songs, while Cliff's good fortune comes from a record inspired by the King himself.

The Fabulous Rock 'N' Roll Songbook, which features nods to Elvis, Buddy Holly and more, is the 73-year-old's 100th album. It was recorded live at Blackbird Studio and The Parlor in Nashville, Tennessee, in the US, and is described as Cliff's tribute to the greats of rock 'n' roll.

Cliff said: "I had so much fun recording this track of Elvis's. It brought back so many memories. I am thrilled that once again we are in the top 10 at the same time, but as usual I need to catch him up."
