ELECTRIC FLAG A LONG TIME COMINí Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP

Overview:
A Long Time Comin' is the first album by American Rock band The Electric Flag, released in 1968. The meat of the album is Soul along with Blues and Rock with a horn section. It is widely seen as an ambitious debut album by music critics.

Ex- Paul Butterfield Band guitarist Mike Bloomfield, drummer Buddy Miles and others put this Soul-Rock band together in 1967. Their debut is a testament to their ability to catch fire and keep on burnin'. Electric Flag appeared at the Monterey International Pop Festival with the Blues Project, Paul Butterfield, and Janis Joplin, and all these groups had some musical connection to each other beyond that pivotal festival.

A Long Time Comin' was called the "New Soul" and tunes like "She Should Have Just" and "Over-Lovin' You" lean more towards the Soul side than the Pop so many radio listeners were attuned to back then. A song like "Groovin' Is Easy" is a classy production, containing intellectual ideas with lots of musical changes, a subdued version of what Janis Joplin herself would give us on I Got Dem Ole Kozmic Blues Again, Mama [MOVLP465] two years later.

A Long Time Comin' influenced bands who would go on to sell more records. The material is pretty much composed by Mike Bloomfield and Barry Goldberg, spiced up by a cover of Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" and spoken-word news broadcasts.
