Release Info: Wim Mertens - A Visiting Card 12"
Massive thanks go out to Dan, who has contributed this Mertens rarity to the blog.
I notice you've shared some Wim Mertens stuff. Would you like to share his Japanese 12" version of "A Visiting Card" with a completely rare/unheard version of "Educes Me" on the b-side? it's a 10-minute version played on an electric keyboard of some kind, sounds really weird but... that's Mertens.
This is a sort of Best Of/Worst Of for Wim Mertens, one of his best short pieces coupled with one of the worst performances (on a creaky electric organ) of a longer, less accessible work. No wonder he's never released it since. It remains one of a handful of early works that have nearly disappeared.
Dan has ripped this from the original vinyl at 320 Kbps.
