Noted Arcade Fire enthusiast Dan Patrick of ESPN Radio (above) observed today the forthcoming Tupac CD, ‘Pac’s Life’, is the late M.C./icon’s 8th album since his 1996 slaying.

“Elvis Presley hasn’t had that many posthumous albums, has he?” wondered Patrick.

A quick check of Amazon’s Elvis listings reveals more than 40 Elvis compilations, box sets and live albums (not counting reissues of studio albums) released since 1990…and I’m only halfway through the pile. Stretching back to the King’s passing in 1977, it is safe to presume there were previous attempts to plunder the vaults.
