Years ago I left a disc in my PR-8210 player after playing it and it warped. I was able to unwarp it and never did that again...

25 years ago this month I got on Usenet for the first time. AVL was a favorite newsgroup. I still do Usenet, just for alt.obituaries. I see some usernames here from AVL. I was the guy who pointed out that the LD "The Black Hole" looks better when I run my Sony Wega in 16X9 mode...

"That's the kind of sh!t that needs to be preserved".

A thread about industrial LDs would be nice. I could talk about ILDs I once had:

Early 80's AMC/Renault training discs. Their one eight inch is in the database here.

1989 Chrysler/Plymouth training discs...

"And I like this site cause I collect nowadays p/s cause not all were actually p/s but rather scanned from the top of the negative to the bottom".

Your talking about Open Matte. I'm doing the same thing, by buying old LDs...

19 years ago I had some VHS tapes. "Rock Video Monthly" that I copied to DVD. I used the 1 hour mode on a Panasonic DMR-E80HS to get CD like audio on the discs. I play them back, and the image looks better than the original tapes...

"Judging from your experiences, that seems to suggest Sony DVD players were pretty much in the same reliability league as their LD players then?"

Correct. I had an MDP-800 or 850 and it had a herringbone pattern right out of the box. Sony couldn't/wouldn't fix it...

I bought a Surfing Movie on DVD. Ignored the FBI Warning at the beginning at first, but noticed it was funny. The movie is called "Five Summer Stories", shot in 1970...

Blazing Boards

Chrystal Eyes

Endless Summer

Endless Summer 2

Follow the Sun

Follow the Sun 2

Free Ride

"If we start documenting all the Thailand pirate filmed-in-theater => badly encoded releases... we're all dead"

Guys, wait a minute. Not a database of releases, but just a forum dedicated to discuss them in. And while I'm here, a forum to discuss Industrial titles...

Rule of Thumb for me is:

If the finale aspect ratio, as listed by IMDb is 1:85.1 it is an open matte film and I'll buy the LD. If the finale aspect ratio is 2:something, I'll buy the DVD...

I saw a copy of this on Ebay:

Now That's What I Call Music Video: vol.01 (1983) [MP139-15VN]

I already had a rotted copy, bad enough to affect the audio tracks.

Rotted Mint Marks: MP139-A01 1A150227

Playback Perfect Mint Marks: MP139-A01 1A151414

The seller told me it played back okay, so I bought it. No rot or dropouts...
