What we wanted to do here was list the total number of offical RCA/BMG/Song releases by year, FTD label releases by year, and also officially licensed releases. Then list the bootlegs released and show just how many releases there have been.
This isnt a complete, or accurate list, but shows just the volume of releases. This information has been taken from our own DVD Omnipedia.
Official Sony and FTD Releases to 2018 = 907
Bootlegs to 2018 = 1086
Boxsets Cd releases = 761
Heres a conundrum for you. Consider this. Ive just listed the totals as per one cd release.
BUT, lets take the CD "ELVIS PRESLEY 1984 RCA PD 81254". This one CD was released 24 times in the USA between 1984 and 1998, and also released in 18 worldwide countries between 1984 and 1999.
It was then re-released as a remastered and bonus cd 21 times between 1999 and 2015. It has also been released a further 6 times as a double cd set, and also twice more (once under the legacy label and then the let it rock label).
So...... The technical question is that the cd "Elvis Presley" although only counted once for our stats above, can you count that this CD has had a total of 71 releases in various forms between 1984 and 2015 ? And we havent included that it was also in the "Young Man With The Big Beat" release.
