Vision (old) (VSN, 1989-1992)

Vision was originally a dutch demo group, probably formed in 1989 (at least that's when their first productions were released). 1989 saw the release of no less than two megademos from this young group, as well as some minor productions. The following year would see a massive amount of releases being poured out, before they presumably died in early 1992. Only one production was released that year, the Anarchy cooperation slideshow "Focused On Art".

Dutch USA-Team (Music Assembler format, 7724 bytes, 1 subsong)
Info
Cooperation with Mirage. The music credit seems dubious (the D-USA Team was a c64 group, famous for creating the music editor RockMonitor on that platform), it is possibly a cover version? There was a Venlo Meeting on this date, and it was probably released there... It is more uncertain exactly what party this intro is supposed to invite to... I can find no reference to a 1991 copy party in 'Tilburg', and no others that match either :(
