AFTER COMPLETING HIS MILITARY SERVICE, ELVIS RELEASED AN ALBUM THAT CONTAINED THIS SONG BUT I HAVE AN INTERESTING STORY ABOUT IT. MANY YEARS AGO, WHEN THE CASSETTE TAPES HAD NOT BEEN INVENTED YET, THE WAY TO RECORD SOUND IN TAPE WERE BIGGER AND HEAVIER MACHINES WITH BIG REELS OF TAPE AND USING AN EXTERNAL MICROPHONE. THOSE WERE MOSTLY FOR PROFFESIONALS AND WERE EXPENSIVE, NOT EVERYBODY HAD ONE OF THOSE BUT THERE WAS ONE IN MY HOME. I WAS VERY YOUNG AND I HAD A FRIEND WHO WAS IN A MUSICAL GROUP THAT PLAYED ROCK IN SPANISH. ONE DAY HE CAME WITH A GUITAR AND ASKED ME TO DO A DEMO RECORDING OF A SPANISH VERSION OF THIS ELVIS SONG FOR THEM TO WORK ON IT. SO I HELPED HIM. DAYS LATER HE BROUGHT THE TAPE BACK TO ME AND SAID 'THANKS'. MANY YEARS PASSED AND ONE DAY, WHEN CLEANING OLD STUFF, I REDISCOVERED THAT OLD TAPE AND THE MACHINE STILL WORKED. I KEPT IT. IT'S A LONG STORY. HE MAY BE DEAD BY NOW. I HAVEN'T SEEN HIM FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS BUT I'M MAKING THAT DEMO TAPE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME.
