TEN LONG YEARS * B. B. KING * KENT 338 * USA
Originally issued on RPM 437 this reissue was released in the early 1960s a time in which B. B. King dominated the label, having close on to half of the releases from #300 to 400 series. The song is not a 'top-up' to Eddie Boyd's Five Long Years released two years earlier but an atmospheric Blues about how after ten years of happiness B. B. King's baby leaves him "all alone".
