"Love Like a Man" is a song and hit single by British blues rock group Ten Years After, first released in 1970 and taken from their album Cricklewood Green.

Singles chart success[edit]

The single is the group's only hit in the UK Singles Chart.[1] Written by the group's lead vocalist Alvin Lee and produced by the group,[2] it was the band's fourth single. The song entered the UK charts at #48 in June 1970 and reached #10 in August finally leaving the chart in October 1970.[3]

Unusually the A-side of this single is to be played at 45 rpm whilst the B-side is to be played at 33 rpm.[2] The B-side is a live version of the song recorded at Bill Graham's Fillmore East and runs at 7:56 in marked contrast to the A-side's shorter, 3:05.[4] Earlier versions of the disc carried no mention that the B-side is 'live' only an overprint in black ink on the paper label that the playing speed is 33 rpm.[2]
