LaserDiscs [or LazerDisc if you’re in the USA] were a home video format but never managed to gainwidespread use in the USA, largely due to high costs for the players and video titles themselves and the inability to record TV programs. It was not a popular format in Europe and Australia when first released but was popular in the 1990s . By contrast, the format was much more popular in Japan and South East Asia. Its superior video and audio quality made it a popular choice among videophiles. The technologies and concepts behind LaserDisc were the foundation for later optical disc formats including CD, DVD and Blu-Ray.
Many laserdisc releases had sleeve variant that were interesting for collectors of artists or bands and given their fairly short life, some now have a cult group of collectors who have little interest in playing them but collect them for their artistic value.
