Additional comments
Recorded at the Prince's Trust Rock Gala 1988. Great show with Mark Knopfler playing on several tracks other than Money for nothing. Great cover with a nice picture of all musicians together with Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Two sided 12 inch LaserDisc, NTSC format, Japanese edition including seperate info-sheet.
 
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.
