"Five Long Years" is an epic blues song written by Eddie Boyd. It was covered so many times through the years. Surely one of the most famous rendition is that of  Clapton for His "From the Cradle" Album. Besides the same Artist often played this number live (really full of energy!)  with "the Yardbirds" in the early sixties. And also our choice of the day,with Buddy Guy, Ron Wood and Jonny Lang making a stunning  performance of it,has something related to Eric. It was done during His Crossroads Guitar Festival!! Enjoy!!
