Front & back cover
Concert registration of the first show before the Golden heart tour. Remarkable to see that this official LaserDisc contains the tracks Sultans of swing and Money for nothing while these two tracks are missing on the official DVD that was released in 2003, except for the early Mexican DVD edition and the rare Korean Video-CD. Rare to see that a LaserDisc is more complete than a DVD. 12 inch LaserDisc, NTSC format, Japanese edition including seperate info-sheet and up-located Obi.
|Extra information Obi||
An Obi strip is traditionally a strip of paper
looped around the left side or folded over the top of Japanese LP albums.
Obi strips are also found folded over the left side of music CD's, video
games, DVD's and even on the covers of books when they are sold new. The
Japanese word "Obi" refers to the traditional sash or belt worn with a
kimono. The features of the obi strip include the title of the product
usually in phonetic Japanese, the track listings, other information such as
price, catalog number and information on related releases or artists from
that same record company.
|Laserdisc information||The LaserDisc (LD) is an obsolete home video disc format, and was the first commercial optical disc storage medium. Initially marketed as Discovision in 1978, the technology was licensed and sold as Reflective Optical Videodisc, Laser Videodisc, Laservision, Disco-Vision, DiscoVision, and MCA DiscoVision until Pioneer Electronics purchased the majority stake in the format and marketed LaserDisc in the mid to late 1980's. While LaserDisc produced a consistently higher quality image than its rivals, the VHS and Betamax systems, the laserdisc never obtained more than a niche market with videophiles in America. In Europe, it remained largely an obscure format. It was, however, much more popular in Japan and in the more affluent regions of South East Asia, such as Hong Kong and Singapore. Laserdisc was the prevalent rental video medium in Hong Kong during the 1990's. The technology and concepts provided with the Laserdisc would become the forerunner to Compact Discs and DVDs.|
