"Long Version" was composed by fellow City Pop singer Yasuhiro Abe（安部恭弘） and written by Reiko Yukawa（湯川れい子）who has also written songs for Akina Nakamori（中森明菜）, Kyoko Koizumi（小泉今日子） and TUBE. The title refers to the fact that a woman who has just had a one-night fling wants a more permanent relationship....a long version, if you will. When it was released in November 1983 as his 6th single, it peaked at No. 50 on the Oricon charts. It was also one of the tracks on his 2nd album, "Shylights".
11 years later, Abe himself did a cover version of his own song on his album "Passages" in 1994. His version is a bit different in arrangement but it's still just as smooth as a fine brandy. Enjoy!
