It’s Been A Long Long Time 78 by Bing Crosby and The Les Paul Trio

December 4, 2011

A funny thing happened to the number one hit “It’s Been A Long Long Time” by Harry James and His Orchestra. It was replaced as the number one song in The United States for the week of December 8, 1945, by “It’s Been A Long Long Time” by Bing Crosby with The Les Paul Trio.

The two versions are totally different and this one has intricate guitar work by the great Les Paul which makes it an essential listen all by itself.

A guitar and vocal master combined for a memorable performance.
