It plays really well, I don't have a high end player (CLD-D406) but the transfer looks very good to me. The nature scenes especially look sharp.

I love DiscoVision, but I only have 19 titles so far. My favorite, obviously, is ABBA. I also collect Magnetic Video releases, including their Japanese counterparts.

Try collecting CEDs too, or being an American collector of VHDs. ;)

Update: With the exception of a few packaging variations, I now have at least one good copy of every title (that we know of!) released by MCA for consumers under the DiscoVision name. :clap:

Right now I'm working on finding non-GM industrial titles. I recently purchased a crazy disc from our own user "cjm" on which a Library of Congress training program (for LoC employees) occupies side A and a Medical Radiology tutorial occupies side B.

I'm also going through the 600 or so discs-without-covers I received along with the Charles Shishkevish collection and have run across many sides from unreleased titles including one that hasn't been found elsewhere: Solo (1972) on the back of side 5 of Coal Miner's Daughter.

… and I surprisingly have no fewer than five copies of side 3 of the unreleased "The Monkey's Uncle". :crazy:

Cool :) How well does it play? (31-32dB isn't that great for a handpicked disk, but I guess it was acceptable to them then)

I purchased this from cjm and can report that it looks much, much better than what you'd expect from 31-32dB VSNR.

Just bought "The Birds" last night. My first Discovision LD, the seller said playback was good in Description, I'm eager to try it out...
