Long Island


This is a completely new to me Mick Jones song, from the soundtrack to a 1993 film Amongst Friends, (not previously heard of that either), set in New York, three friends growing up, gangland troubles, upward mobility and so on. BAD II are on the soundtrack along with The Pharcyde, Lemonheads, Tone Loc, Bettie Serveert, MC Lyte and Mott the Hoople. Mick has two solo songs, this one and No Ennio. I can't find No Ennio anywhere at the moment but Long Island is a laid back, lilting thing with a softly sung vocal and some recurring electronic atmospherics.

I only came across this myself very recently. How did we both manage to miss it for all these years? Great photo too.

Oh, I like that.

No idea Swede. But I quite like finding stuff I didn't know about, a measure of excitement in that.

Assume you've heard this, Mick doing 46664, the last song Joe wrote

Found a copy of No Ennio on a hard-drive and uploaded it to youtube

Thanks Michael, good work. I've ordered a copy of the soundtrack on cd off ebay, a snip at 1.99
