His Latest Flame (2005 Single)
The ninth single in a line of seventeen #1 re-issues. Design This CD-single comes in the original US cover for the outer sleeve, the inner sleeve contains a copy of the original UK wrapper, a standard RCA sleeve. The vinyl edition only has the original UK sleeve, so no picture sleeve. Content Never thought I’d go out and by one of my favorite Elvis tunes, “(Marie’s The Name Of) His Latest Flame” as a charting Top 40 single. How good it is to be an Elvis fan these days. This song is featured two times on this single, an alternate take is the bonus song. There is not much difference between these takes, but we get this great rocker two times, so who is complaining? This single contains two Pomus / Shuman compositions. Besides the already mentioned “His Latest Flame” the other song is “Little Sister”. Somehow this song makes me think of the end of the sixties, this song is a bit ahead of it’s time due to the rhythm and guitar sound. Conclusion Elvis had four #2 singles in a row, hopefully this single will make it to the top, the competition is less strong than last week … although the pre-sales figures don’t look promising. For those who don’t care too much about the charts, these detailed reproductions are real gems to collect on either CD-single, vinyl (or both …). Quiz! Courtesy of BMG Nederland you can win a copy of Elvis' single "His Latest Flame", simply use the banner in the left menu.

Well, so it's official: No 3. Well what can we expect? Pity, because this single really should have deserved better! Still, history is beeing written!

What a bloody shame. This single HIS LATEST FLAME should have been No.1. What a missed opportunity. No thanks to BMG, EPE, Top of The Pops and HMV and what else??

I went into HMV Belfast today . loads of cds of all the singles, even "A fool such as i" which was very hard to get. hundreds of vinyl of all the singles, all the singles except one ofcourse, the current one "His latest flame! I questioned the manager and with a big smile he said "At the end of august theyr releasing the box set in full" ... he just didnt get it.
