Do I need a new alternater or is something else wrong?

It's been sitting for a while. Replaced the battery a few months ago. I get nothing when I put my keys in the ignition. No electricity at all. Starts right up when jumped but dies once you stop revving the engine.

Both battery and alternator need to be tested!
