  1. 1. Elvis Australia Official Elvis Presley Fan Club Search ElvisPresley.com.au : Elvis Presley Shop Elvis Presley: The Australian Singles Chart : 1956-2006 Elvis managed an incredible twenty-year streak of placing hits on the singles chart from 1956 to 1975. From 1956 to 2006, he spent 1,780 weeks in total with 120 entries on the Australian Singles Chart. He accumulated a total of 61 weeks at No.1 with his 14 #1 hits and had 48 Top 10 singles, with some of these being 'double A sides', thus taking his tally to over 50. Elvis also holds the record in Australia for 'The Biggest Gap Between First and Last No.1's', a period of 43 years, 1 month and 1 week (16-May-1959, A Fool Such As I and 24-June-2002 for A Little Less Conversation). A Little Less Conversation also holds the record for 'The Longest climb to No.1', as it first charted in November 1968, reaching No.64, but then 33 years and 7 months later it finally debuted at No.1. And now, fifty of Elvis' Top 10 Hits are to be featured on the double CD compilation; Elvis Presley: 50 Australian Top 10 Hits 1956- 1977 to be released in Australia on January 8, 2010.
