Note that I have used the title that was printed on the labels of the original US and UK single releases of Elvis's version. However, some European picture covers showed it as simply "His Latest Flame" (and presumably this was how it was shown on the record labels). Some listings indicate "(Marie's The Name Of) His Latest Flame" (note the "of"). Other variations can also be found. BMI records state that the "legal title" is simply "His Latest Flame" and that an alternative title is "Marie's The Name Of His Latest Flame" (without parentheses, but with "of").
Recorded first by Del Shannon on 21 June 1961 (other sources indicate May), just a few days before Elvis recorded his version during an all-night session, starting at 6PM on the 25th June and continuing until 7:30 the next morning. Shannon's version was considered as a possible follow-up to his huge success with "Runaway," but this was not to be and he quickly wrote "Hats Off To Larry," which was used instead in order to keep the publishing rights. Rumour has it that both Bobby Vee and Bobby Darin attempted the number even before Del Shannon, but I have found no proof of this. Shannon's original recording appeared on the LP, "Runaway," and was listed simply as "His Latest Flame." The LP was released on BigTop 12-1303. Sadly, Del Shannon committed suicide early in 1990.

record information:
THE RECORD HAS A 'BELL SOUND' STAMP IN THE TRAIL-OFF VINYL (DEAD WAX) AREA, WHICH IS GENERALLY CONSIDERED A PROOF OF AUTHENTICITY OF THE FIRST PRESSING

A very old friend came by today                                                                                                                                                                                 
'Cause he was telling everyone in town                                                      
About the love that he just found                                                      
And Marie's the name of his latest flame                                              

He talked and talked and I heard him say                                               
That she had the longest blackest hair                                                     
The prettiest green eyes anywhere                                                                
And Marie's the name of his latest flame                                                    

Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning                                                      
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye                                             
He was gone but still his words kept returning                                            
What else was there for me to do but cry                                                   

Would you believe that yesterday                                                              
This girl was in my arms and swore to me                                                
She'd be mine eternally                                                                             
And Marie's the name of his latest flame                                                       

Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning                                      
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye                                            
He was gone but still his words kept returning                                           
What else was there for me to do but cry                                                   

Would you believe that yesterday                                                              
This girl was in my arms and swore to me                                                  
She'd be mine eternally                                                                             
And Marie's the name of his latest flame                                                     

Yeah marie's the name of his latest flame                                                 
Oh, marie's the name of his latest flame.....
