"The Last Time" is a song by the British rock band The Rolling Stones. This was The Rolling Stones' first UK single written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. It was the band's third UK single to reach No. 1 there, spending four straight weeks at the top on most of the numerous UK music charts (there was no one UK chart at the time considered to be an absolute and definitive authority) in March and early April 1965. "The Last Time" was recorded at RCA Studios in Hollywood, California in January 1965. Footage still exists of a number of performances of this song by the Rolling Stones in 1965: from the popular BBC-TV music show Top of the Pops, the 1965 New Musical Express Poll Winners Concert and American TV shows including The Ed Sullivan Show, Shindig! and Hollywood A Go-Go. The footage establishes that the distinctive guitar riff was played by Brian Jones while the chords and guitar solo were played by Keith Richards.
