Ricky Martin's Menudo Days Return On Video

With stock in all things Ricky Martin going through the roof, one company is hoping that fans will want to check out the Ricky of yesteryear.

Next month, Lightyear Entertainment will release a vintage concert video from the Latin teen pop outfit Menudo from the days when Martin was a member. "Menudo Video Explosion," which hits stores on August 10, features Martin at the tender age of 14 delivering the group's hits to a sold out Miami crowd in 1985.

Martin can be seen belting out the Louis Prima classic (turned David Lee Roth cover hit) "Just A Gigolo" as well as Menudo tracks like "If You're Not Here," "Hold Me," and "Like An Explosion."

Meanwhile, the somewhat more mature Martin of 1999 is preparing to launch a U.S. tour in October. If you'd like to check out the more current model, here's where to look:
