Indeed, this is the Karaoke Bay reviews page

The Karaoke Bay Series (KBA)

Firstly, at the Karaoke Shack, we understand that new karaoke discs are few and far between presently. Those heady days, when boat loads of karaoke discs came off the production line by many different firms, are no more. However, there are still new karaoke disc collectors trickling onto the karaoke scene. Obviously, they will need information about the various karaoke manufacturers old and new. Also, they are seeking information about the quality of the discs produced by them. In a word, join in with us and help out the karaoke community.

Just to point out, looking at the disc labels, it’s clear to see that some are 8+8. In effect, this means they only have 8 songs. To clarify this, it means there are 8 tracks non-vocal and 8 tracks with-vocals. While there are many people who like this situation, many don’t. Indeed, for the new karaoke disc collector looking for the most karaoke tracks, this is not value for money. However, some find the with-vocal tracks help them to learn a particular song. Basically, it is down to what your requirements are.

On the whole, we found there was a lot of Karaoke Bay discs for sale all over the internet. In brief, they were selling at various prices. Indeed, we found Karaoke Bay discs from very cheap to standard priced, mint condition discs. In fact, some are still available complete with cellophane wrappers!

To Clarify The Discs

Indeed, we will list all the Karaoke Bay disc id numbers. In general, we found the disc id numbers were pretty confusing with 8 digits. However, this is how all KJ’s who sent in information listed them. Indeed, readers will note that they all end with a number 2. In fact, there was no need for this. But, if that identifies the Karaoke Bay, so be it!

In the first place, after inspecting the Karaoke Bay disc identity numbers, it is clear that there are gaps. However, if we are to add discs to our list we would need clarification that the ‘missing’ discs actually exist. Also, we hope that anyone who is willing to help out with a small review will do so. Obviously, this will help other potential buyers and karaoke collectors. This is because it helps them to make sound decisions before parting with their cash.

To Sum Up

Just to point out the obvious, these Karaoke Bay discs all end in a number two. This obviously makes things slightly more difficult to work with in karaoke books. This is because it adds that extra number to the disc identity which is totally unnecessary. In general, the ‘average’ human can remember five numbers and letters in a row comfortably. But, after five we tend to forget things. So keeping the karaoke disc id numbers down to a minimum should have been a priority.

That said, it shouldn’t distract us from the overall aim of the Karaoke Shack. Obviously, that is to find out which set of karaoke discs are worth chasing up to buy. However, our policy is that staff here remain tight lipped. Indeed, we leave all reviews and comments to the members. This obviously gives independent opinions. Generally speaking, karaoke collectors now and in the future need all the information they can get.

So, if you have any of these discs, please make a comment or two.  It is the quality of the music and on-screen lyrics that we basically have an interest in. But, not forgetting price. The cost comes last because most of these karaoke discs are old and should be available cheaper than new discs.

Indeed, if you know how to work the marketplace you can make it a lot cheaper! For example, ebay is a great place to look for these discs. Obviously, don’t bid higher than you should. After all, they will come back around again for sure if you miss out the first time. However, just remember that there is no substitute for quality. So, weigh up what you know about these karaoke discs with cost. Of course, the ultimate aim is to get the best quality karaoke collection cheaper.

Finally

On the whole, should you have any Karaoke Bay discs, please consider making a small review of their quality.
The Karaoke Shack Forum will be here for all discussions about Karaoke Bay discs and all othe karaoke matters.
Obviously, we all want to know your opinions as to the sound quality. Moreover, what are the on-screen lyrics like? Also, any experience you have had with them, we all want to know – seriously! This is because, with so many karaoke labels, we want to establish whether we should accept or reject these. One final point here, we are also looking to eliminate dupes as well.

Karaoke Bay Song Book Also

We now have the information about the discs and the opinions of others. However, we need the track listing for Karaoke Bay. Indeed, we have this available. As previously noted, it was a pain putting all this together. However, after many months, we managed to compile a complete list. So, if the disc is in the list above, the track listing is also available. Finally, if you know of any discs not on the list, let us know. In short, click the link below for the song list.

    It appears that Sterling/UAV, the company which produced this series of Karaoke CD’s went bust in 2006. UAV was largely a VHS company and distributed everything from Disney films to these CDs. Archive.org versions of karaokebay.com seem to confirm this. After 2006 the website was parked and then squatted.

    A friend of mine got ahold of KBA33872 and I just ran through some of the tracks. My overall impressions are as follows.

    The overall sound seems accurate but, not high-end studio quality sound. The instruments are pretty authentic but, it sounds about the same as if a local garage band went to a cheaper local studio to produce an album. It is more “raw” and unpolished than the originals but, not a bad sound overall.

    Backup vocals seem to take a minimalist approach. There aren’t a lot of them but, the singers are spot-on when present.

    I couldn’t really tell off the top of my head if the key or tempo of the songs were accurate but, they seemed close to me.

    Overall, I’d give this a 6 or 7 out of 10 but, will round up to 7 overall. This label appears to be dirt-cheap used or new on Amazon and eBay.

    While I have several Karaoke Bay discs, and I like most of them, there are some outstanding ones. My favorite is Crazy by Patsy Cline, and it is on more than one disc.
    The company did go under in 2006, but they are not (IMO) a bad buy
