“The Last Time” was a transitional single for The Rolling Stones. They were about to leave their blues oriented roots behind and move toward becoming one of the world’s best rock bands.
While it still had some R&B elements, the Stones were in rock mode. It reached the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart in early March of 1965 and peaked at number nine.
The Rolling Stones were about to embark on the first classic period of their career and “The Last Time” was leading the way.
