Could be RPO part 2. Usually the series releases another installment from the same artist about a year after the first.Are there any rumours or planned releases to celebrate the 50th anniversary, previously released or not? It's already May and apart from the fan organised event and Randy's new book, there has been no information about music. I know there are still 8 months left of this year but I remain hopeful we will get a decent celebratory release, probably from Japan, as usual. Does anyone know if Richard is working on or involved in anything? The wonderful RPO project was not branded as anything to do with the 50th so I am ever hopeful of something else. Anyone have any ideas/info? Richard has surprised us in the past...
Otherwise it'll be a compilation as we know it... something like "40/40." Maybe "50/50."
I don't think there's any information about that currently.
The RPO album spent about 20 weeks in the top ten on the classical album charts. Still remains in the top 20.
It was certified silver in the UK (60,000 copies sold).
I don't know if they moved enough product in order to do another.
Elvis w/RPO was 3X Platinum (1 million sold).
Roy Orbison w/RPO Platinum (300,000 sold).
I'm not sure when those numbers were certified, but those are from their first RPO albums.
Its possible Carpenters with the RPO would have to go platinum in order for the label to consider Part 2. But, not a clue what Universal's criteria is.
