Post subject:  Late LD releases (2004)

I have heard about very late LD's releases (2004), but never encountered them.
Also I always thought these late releases were 8" discs.

Now Julien has been adding a lot of Karaoke releases over the last days (thanks :thumbup: ), I was quite surprised to see :

Teichiku Laser Karaoke: vol.279 [30LV-279]

It's a 18/03/2004 release, 12" with 2 sides and 28 tracks, would be interesting to see which factory still manufactured this late.
Anyone has such discs in their collection or a picture available ?

Br, Edwin

I had to double check the 8" vs. 12" but 14 songs of 4~5 minutes is really a full 1h CLV side.
First batch would seem to have started in 1982 with Teichiku Laser Karaoke: vol. 1 [30LV-1].

It might be the longest running LD collection ever!


The next series I added were the 01DK-XXX and these are 8" also from Teichiku.

Most recent known/confirmed is Utaemon: vol.370 [01DK-370] (1999).

I googled a bit and found pic of 30LV-237 (not yet in LDDB), indeed a 12", also found they had own carrying cases ...

They probably release thousands of Karaoke titles to feed all the Karaoke business in Japan in the 80's and 90's.

Tons of releases that are not listed on LDDb.com -- but also have very little interest to 99.999% if the people.

Did the same on VHD, then DVD, etc. Probably running on NAS/cloud now.

As long as you can skip/seek chapters, they were in business.
VHS was ill-fitted for Karaoke business.
