It has been requested that the title of this article be changed to Still Life (Rolling Stones album). Please see the relevant discussion on the discussion page. Do not move the page until the discussion has reached consensus for the change and is closed.
The album was preceded by their cover of the Miracles' "Going to a Go-Go", which became a Top 30 hit in the United Kingdom and United States, while the follow-up single, "Time Is on My Side", reached the lower part of the UK charts.
Still Life was a commercial success, reaching #4 in the UK and #5 in the U.S., going platinum there, but was not critically well-received, being admonished for sounding too slick and lacking any rough edges expected in a Rolling Stones performance. Former Stones bassist Bill Wyman may agree: the album received only a brief and dismissive mention in the otherwise heavily detailed chronicle of his life with the band, Rolling with the Stones. Of particular chagrin to Stones fans was the fact that nearly half of the Hampton Coliseum rendition of "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)" was edited out for the release.
