         From Keef's Life:

         Mick and I knew by now that really our job was to write songs for the Stones. It took us eight, nine months before we came up with "The Last Time," which is the first one that we felt we could give to the rest of the guys without being sent out of the room. If I'd gone to the Rolling Stones with "As Tears Go By," it would have been "Get out and don't come back." Mick and I were trying to hone it down. We kept coming up with these ballads, nothing to do with what we were doing. And then we finally came up with "The Last Time" and looked at each other and said, let's try this one with the boys. The song has the first recognizable Stones riff or guitar figure on it; the chorus is from the Staples Singers' version, "This May Be The Last Time." ... That was when it really clicked, with that song, when Mick and I felt confident enough to actually lay it in front of Brian and Charlie and Ian Stewart, especially, arbiter of events.
