Wouldn't it be great if our boy could close the gap on, & eventually overtake, the Beatles & Queen ?

I reckon it's 'do-able'...

I have been thinking about that issue also Colin and I agree with you. Elvis should get at least another 25 weeks in the Top 75 with the next RPO album putting him ahead of The Beatles. Of course things like deaths e.g. Paul McCartney or Brian May would be a problem or even other new releases. However, definitely do-able as you say.
