A Long Time Comin' is the first album by American rock band the Electric Flag, released in 1968. The album has a mix of musical styles, including soul along with blues and rock, with a horn section.

It opens with an updated take on the Howlin' Wolf blues classic "Killing Floor" and includes an adaptation of Sticks McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine, Spo-Dee-O-Dee" titled "Wine". The album also contains "Groovin’ Is Easy" and "Over-Lovin’ You", which had been released as a single in 1967.

It is widely seen as an ambitious debut album by music critics. The album was somewhat of a failure in the charts, much to the disappointment of Bloomfield, who had worked hard on the album. His disappointment was worsened by the success of the Al Kooper-directed Super Session, which, featuring Bloomfield, charted much higher than A Long Time Comin' despite only being recorded over a period of two days.
