According to the LA Times, Garth is "one gold record ahead" of Elvis. I know RIAA certifies for albums shipped and not albums sold and all that nit-picky stuff. But this is pretty cool. Officially the #1 Selling solo artist in US History.

Elvis also released stuff on vinyl 45s and 33, 8 Tracks, cassettes, cds, and digitally too:)

Both are impressive numbers!

And Elvis was out way before 1989, but I know what you mean;) I'm sure if he had lived longer, GB would have a ways to go to catch Elvis.
