The Last Jim is the second album with English lyrics by Danish rock band Gasolin'. It was released in some Western European countries in November 1974 on CBS, simultaneously to its Danish counterpart Stakkels Jim. The songs are identical on the two albums, except for the lyrics. Like on their previous album Gasolin' of the same year, American Leonard "Skip" Malone, helped the band translate the Danish lyrics into English.[1]

All songs are Gasolin' originals, except "Blood Brothers" which is their interpretation of Robert Burns' 18th century poem "Auld Lang Syne".
