ELVIS WAS A HERO TO MOST/ BUT HE'D NEVER GET A GODDAMN BRIT FROM ME: Simon Tyers writes again to bring our attention to the ongoing Times letter page Elvis debate, with a George Edwards of Harrogate firing a riposte which suggests not only was Elvis shit, but there have only been four albums in the history of recorded music that were worth buying:

My daughter and I continue a competition to agree which albums contain a full quota of good tracks, justifying the cost of their purchase. To date we have identified only four: Rumours (Fleetwood Mac), Graceland (Paul Simon), International Velvet (Catatonia) and Bat Out of Hell (Meat Loaf). Presley, with his many appalling movie soundtrack albums, deserved no better than two awards.
