Additional comments A TV show by and with Chet Atkins and some of his closest friends. Very emotional for Mark Knopfler as he was playing with his childhood heroes, Chet Atkins and the Everly Brothers. The highlight is when the Everly Brothers sings Mark's song Why worry. Mark Knopfler plays guitar on all songs. Also emotional when Chet sings a song about his father, I still can't say goodbye. Mark Knopfler plays guitar on all songs. One sided 12 inch LaserDisc, NTSC format, Japanese edition including seperate info-sheet and 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.
