50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong: Elvis’ Gold Records, Volume 2 (or simply known as, Elvis’ Gold Records, Volume 2) is the fourth compilation album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley, issued by RCA Victor in November 1959. It is a compilation of hit singles released in 1958 and 1959 by Presley, from recording sessions going back as far as February 1957.
There has long been some confusion over the actual title of this album. The title is shown on the original record’s labels as “Elvis’ Gold Records, Vol. 2,” with a comma and an abbreviation of “Volume”, but on the jacket, it appears as “Elvis’ Gold Records – Volume 2”. The phrase “50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong” does not appear on the labels on any of the original records, and it is the title of the records on the labels—not the jacket—that is usually given preference when conflicting titles appear on albums. Therefore, the phrase was not part of the original title of the album. Beginning no later than 1962, RCA Victor added “50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong” to the labels of a few mono records and to the then newly released “electronically reprocessed stereo” records. The boasting on the label appears nearly exclusive to records manufactured at RCA Victor’s Hollywood pressing plant; copies pressed at the other plants tended to use the proper title only. The ‘50,000,000’ phrase remained there for several years, but by 1968, it was removed from the new orange RCA labels and was not found on any record labels for years afterward, but then it was added (again), this time to the compact disc releases of this album, where it has remained.
“Elvis’ Gold Records, Vol. 2” peaked at number 31 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart. It was certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for a Gold Record Award (based on $1,000,000 in wholesale sales) on November 1, 1966. It was certified for a Platinum Record Award for sales of one million copies in the US on March 27, 1992.
