Eddy Merckx Bravo Eddy45

Since this blog is about mainly cycling and records, I thought I would drop a few cycling related records on here. It is unlikely that I will be discussing Kraftwerk or John Tesh's contribution to cycling music, but there will be a few oddities and historical items as the come along.
Decided to go big right off the bat. If you talking cycling, the Cannibal is high up on the list so he is the 1st subject of the WWDIS cycling record series.
On this 45 Janneman sings "bravo eddy" b/w "twee witte muizen". "Bravo Eddy" has a nice hockey rink organ and oompa type beat. Flemish lyrics. Fun song.
Flipside has Janneman doing a more rock type song. Punchier with horns. Maybe in a Neil Diamond type style. It almost rocks for the 1st 10 or so seconds.
Back cover lists his palmares up to 1970 when this came out. Weekend records(pWE18.077-X) Record must be from late 70 or early 71.
On a topical note, he had one Milan-San Remo 2 times by the time this record had been put out.
