We now know the inspiration for the upcoming Song CD release, 'Bossa Nova Baby'. A new Heineken television commercial features the (re-mix) song Bossa Nova Baby in what is hoped will bring demand for the CD. In the TV commercial a young man is on a unique journey set to the music of the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Elvis Presley's Bossa Nova Baby sets the tone for a glimpse of a single man's journey to find a mysterious woman. The new ad is being broadcast in countries around the world and Elvis fans can watch the complete online version (below) or by visiting Heineken.com.

Originally written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, the song was recorded for Elvis' 1963 film 'Fun in Acapulco'. Recorded in RCA's Studio B in Nashville, the song reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Chart and #20 on the Billboard R&B Singles Chart in 1963.

The commercials description states the following: A single man embarks on a city adventure with only the missing cards of a mysteriously beautiful woman to guide him. Each card takes him deeper into the neon heart of the city but will his wild woman-hunt eventually lead to the girl of his dreams? Of course it will, but that doesn't mean it won't be a blast finding out how.

You can pre-order the CD now. It is due out on June 3. (See Below).

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
