Her first major success was the Jagger-Richards composition As Tears Go By (1964) followed by three 1965 top ten records including Come and Stay With Me and This Little Bird (both 1965) Between 1966 and 1970 her career was overshadowed by her relationship with Mick Jagger which was relentlessly followed by the international press.
