Okay, some of you do not find this guide helpful a shame primarily because I run a karaoke do my own cabaret with it and combine songs from various labels onto one disc to take round on the several times a week I go to other karaokes to learn and listen hopefully to new material, I come home and look at a site called KJPRO which lists virtually every known karaoke disc in fact 320,000 plus songs which as far as I am aware no UK based custom karaoke can offer though a USA one I know can obtain most and the best of the best karaoke discs are probably DKG which sometimes are for sale on EBAY. personally I believe that this medium is a serious artform, for the singer it gives one greater freedom of expression less dependance upon the limitations of the backing players and a vast range of songs and styles not suited to many artists. The primary drawback is before purchase how can one assess the quality of the CDG, never buy more than one and be happy with the reproduction that make it possible to sing as you comprehend the song many CDGs fail by altering the words tampering with the music so that one is uncomfortable with the result, when you have found that brand of karaoke CDG that you are happy with then you can expand the range of that brand. karaoke should be a visual product avoid so called karaoke audio tracks after all your song range can expand dramatically with a sly on screen look for guidance, widen your horizons be adventurous. good luck and good hunting.The introduction of DVDs into the karaoke market is interesting many advertise 10s of thousands of songs, however most rely on current listings of music to be found on karaoke and not on those karaoke labels who have demised, where many of the authentic versions lie. As with many cover versions it is rare for the current crop of artists to exceed or improve the original artist so do try to find the track artist that you prefer, Ebay sellers have many labels now out of issue search through. As a singer I have over 700 different karaoke discs of CDG variety, with some you will require more professional kit as certain multiplex issues will not play on ordinary players and VCD issues can be at odds with your system. The quality of the original laser discs is very good but the players are scarce, the laser disc is LP size and heavy however if really cheap a good investment it had a short time in the limelight.
