Open Mic Karaoke Introduction

In short, our website features two karaoke company names that are almost identical in pronunciation. However, they are different companies. They are the Open Mic karaoke here, and then there is Open Mike karaoke.

But they are different labels altogether. In essence, this is the sort of thing that collectors love. However, neither of them makes karaoke discs anymore.

Open Mic Karaoke produced about three times more karaoke discs than Open Mike Karaoke.

Overall, we could only find a few examples of physical discs to buy on the Internet. All in all, eBay looks like the safest bet if you are looking to collect these karaoke discs. However, always check on the condition of the discs before you purchase them.

Keen collectors should know how to use eBay to its fullest to grab rare stuff at a reasonable price. For example, search the worldwide section and not just your own country.

Collecting The Data

In addition to the disc identity (prefix) numbers sent to us, members sent in their songbooks for these. Also, with such a small label, compiling this information was straightforward.

We got a few karaoke jockeys (KJs) to respond to our call for information about this label. Indeed, all had the same system of prefixes. Unusually, they don’t have numbers. However, it is a pretty straightforward way of naming the discs. For example, OPM77959 (OPM-SO) is a disc featuring Stacie Orrico.

To clarify, here is a list of Open Mic Karaoke disc ID numbers we have:

You may download the list of discs for the Open Mic Karaoke series above. However, the songbooks are for members only. So, if you need those, consider joining us.

Karaoke With Guide Vocals

There’s nothing like consistency, and these discs give you just that. Each of these discs contains eight songs, but four have guide vocals. So this means that each disc only has four unique karaoke songs. Considering that a CDG could comfortably have around 20 tracks, are these worth it?

Open Mic Karaoke Review

Open Mic Karaoke - OPM77997 Disc - OPM-AV.

The opening splash screens are decent. The company name and logo are pink on the top of the screen. Under that, you have the song title and the artists.

At the end of the song, you see the songwriters and publishers. So, all the necessary information is available for each karaoke track.

The dark blue background remains to display the white lyrics. That wording turns green as the music progresses. However, there is a slight lag.

In other words, they are behind the beat when they should match exactly. Indeed, we prefer the lyrics to be slightly ahead.

The choice of backing music is excellent. It’s just a shame that the lyrics don’t sync properly. Once you know the song, you will not notice the slight lag. With the sleeves and CDGs having decent artwork, the makers made an effort, without a doubt.

Karaoke Sample

Although we may use numerous songs for the review, we only provide one sample video to represent the label. So, the song sample for our video presentation is OPM94477-04 – Stacie Orrico – Stuck.

Our Verdict

  • On-screen Lyrics: 3.5
  • Music Content: 4
  • Splash Screen, Graphics, Video: 3.5
  • Cover Art: 4
  • Overall Average: 3.75
  • Music And Lyrics Average: 3.75

We gave this collection 4 out of 5 in the rating system below. You can also vote for these, even if you don’t have the discs or tracks. Indeed, all you need to do is watch our presentation video above and judge that.

Desirability Factor

Our song samples showed how this karaoke maker got things right and wrong together. That is because, although the music and on-screen graphics are decent, you only get four unique songs for your money.

Be that as it may, they are a karaoke collector’s dream, even if they take up plenty of space for very few songs! Karaoke Info’s verdict is that it is a hit for a collector. But for the casual user, it may not be so good.

We can’t possibly check every track, but if you have any of these discs, why not give us your thoughts?

To Sum Up

The Open Mic Karaoke Series looks to be a rare find indeed. They come from the golden era of karaoke in the early noughties (2000s), so you will find it hard to discover any now.

Apart from the slight lag, as described above, these are decent CDGs, but with only a handful of songs on each disc, it would be madness for some people to buy them.

  1. Thank you, jomarch, my friend. After researching, I can confirm that the disc you mentioned, OPM-GSP2, does not exist. It has been taken out of the list above.

    Having spoken to the member who sent in the original information, we have found that he had listed it under Open Mic Karaoke. It was a rogue Open Mike Karaoke disc, namely OPM2201.

    Should you find others in the wrong place, please let us know, and we will correct them for the benefit of others.

  2. Open Mic was an offshoot of the Christian label Sparrow and its sister labels. These were original artist discs and were in a 6+6 format. That’s if I remember correctly. The CDGs had good graphics and sound quality. I grabbed mine when they were clearing them out at a distributor!
