Elvis Presley on the Album Charts USA / UK / Australia / Germany

Some countries did not develop recognized national charts until the 1960s.

Elvis Presley, the King of Rock & Roll, leads all acts on the Billboard 200 with the most charted albums: 108 (between August 1963 through November, 2015). Elvis' most recently hit the list with the collection 'Elvis Presley Forever', which peaked at No. 11 on the Sept. 5, 2015-dated chart. And then with 'If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' which peaked at No. 21. Elvis' incredible sum is dozens ahead of the next-largest total, the 73 collected by country titan Willie Nelson.

(It's important to note that many of Elvis Presley's albums were released and found popularity before Aug. 17, 1963, the first week of research for this survey.)

1956–1963

From 1963 through 1973, Billboard would not list Christmas or Holiday albums on its Pop or Hot 200 album chart; it would only list those albums on its Christmas or Holiday album charts.

Elvis begins his musical comeback in late 1968 with his NBC TV Special. In 1973 his Aloha from Hawaii TV special is broadcast worldwide and seen by more than 1 billion viewers. Soon after his death in 1977, another TV special, 'Elvis In Concert' is broadcast in the US. Soundtrack albums for all three specials are released soon after the performances.
