Pocket Songs Karaoke Introduction

In short, the Pocket Songs Karaoke collection is massive, with a songbook over 200 pages long.

This label was one of the top players, without a doubt. However, like most karaoke firms, they couldn’t compete profitably in an ever-shrinking market. The firm no longer produces karaoke discs.

Be that as it may, they have left their mark in the karaoke world and are legendary in their own right. So, read on and find out more information about this massive karaoke label.

Pocket Songs Karaoke - PS1411 - Front Cover.

Have You Heard Of Them?

Pocket Song Karaoke produced a myriad of discs. Because of this, they are easy to get hold of. And in turn, you can acquire them reasonably cheaply. Of course, they managed to cover the most popular genres. But, they also specialised in show songs, musicals, and Broadway shows. All in all, their reputation is second to none, but have you heard of them?

Ask most people what their favourite karaoke label is, and they will usually say something other than Pocket Songs. Be that as it may, collectors can buy these karaoke discs with complete confidence, as this info and reviews page will reveal.

Different Labels

Pocket Songs Karaoke is a big label. You can see that in the list of CDGs below. However, Pocket Songs is responsible for the following karaoke labels, too:

Apart from the Just Tracks label, all the rest, including the Pocket Songs featured in this info section, have guide vocals. These are great for those who like to learn new songs. However, some consider guide vocal tracks unnecessary.

This Karaoke Info page is all about the Pocket Songs Karaoke label.

We are listing each label separately for a few reasons, even though each one doesn’t have a unique splash screen:

  • The sleeves, including the CDG itself, have their very own unique branding
  • Each label could, in theory, target a specific group, KJ or karaoke collector
  • It’s a lot tidier this way

Although each label has a songbook, we have a special one for the whole lot (see below)

Duplicate Songs

With such a massive karaoke label, there are duplicate songs. However, this mainly applies if you have a mixture of discs from all the series above. Casual karaoke collectors, only after the Stage Stars, for example, will have no dupes.

So, if you are selective, you will not get too many dupes from this label. Of course, a keen karaoke collector will want the entire series!

Pocket Songs Karaoke Left A Great Legacy

This label has indeed made its mark on the karaoke scene. However, some karaoke jockeys (KJs) did find some annoying discs in this collection. That is because some discs can come without on-screen graphics.

For example, this disc by Rolling Stones (PS1228) has no lyrics.

Just below halfway down on the rear cover, it informs us that the publisher declines the use of the lyrics.

Of course, these songs are available on other labels in our directory and will likely have graphics.

We always thought that releasing karaoke discs without graphics was silly.

Indeed, singers need to know a song inside out to sing it without on-screen lyrics.

We wouldn’t recommend CDGs without lyrics unless you want the complete collection. That is because we have used such discs before and found them useless. Thankfully, there are not too many of these. Also, the label should tell you when there are no lyrics. So, be aware of this when buying.

Pocket Songs Karaoke Discs

Compiling a list from this massive collection was a big task. However, we asked our members to submit their songbooks. Over many months, we finally put a complete list together. That includes all the tracks from the karaoke discs.

Since Pocket Songs no longer makes karaoke, we don’t think the list will change much. However, some discs are not on our lists. So, if further information comes to light, we will adjust the lists.

You have plenty of information about this karaoke label. Now let us move on to the list we have:

Pocket Songs Karaoke Review

PS1141 - The Beatles CDG.

The splash screens are usually void of images, but they give plenty of information. For example, there is the company name and song title. However, some splash screens might show the writers and publishers. You may even see the song duration as well as the starting key.

The on-screen information display is not uniform because of the number of CDGs the firm released. Indeed, the colours can vary a lot. That is the same with the word font. However, we found most word fonts to be legible. Of course, that is the essential thing.

The synchronisation between the on-screen lyrics and the music varied in our samples. Some were spot on, but some had a very slight lag. Be that as it may, none were too far behind, so that’s a blessing.

The choice of backing music was excellent, with sparkling highs and thundering lows.

There is plenty of variation on both the CDGs and sleeves. There are images galore, and they provide much information. Indeed, we will always appreciate the efforts of the Pocket Songs Karaoke makers. Their contribution to karaoke is something to be revered.

Karaoke Song 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 PS1008-19 – Roy Orbison – Only The Lonely.

Our Verdict

  • On-screen Lyrics: 4
  • Music Content: 4.5
  • Splash Screen, Graphics, Video: 3.5
  • Cover Art: 5
  • Overall Average: 4.25
  • Music And Lyrics Average: 4.25

We gave this collection 5 out of 5 in the rating system below because of their dedication to karaoke. This label gave the world of karaoke plenty of discs. So, it demands a high score. 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.

Karaoke Info verdict: a big hit!

Desirability Factor

The staff at Karaoke Info doesn’t beat about the bush with this label. The karaoke scene is a far better place because of companies such as Pocket Songs.

You can buy these discs with confidence because they are excellent. If you have any Pocket Songs CGDs, give us your opinions. You can use the star rating and review form or comment below.

To Sum Up

All in all, there are a lot of Pocket Songs Karaoke discs in the above series. Indeed, some have duplications on the Screen Tracks series. So, to save money, use our lists to avoid duplication.

Also, some “missing” discs may not exist, so tell us if you think they do.

You wouldn’t survive in any industry with bad service or poor quality goods. You would expect a karaoke firm that released around 1,000 CDGs to have been excellent. Of course, that is a logical way of thinking.

Karaoke disc collectors can get a fantastic deal on these discs on the second-hand market. There were hundreds of deals when we searched the internet. Indeed, we saw some bargains on eBay. Moreover, some had a factory seal. If you buy on the second-hand market, you should ask about the condition of the discs.

OK, the Pocket Songs Karaoke producers made many karaoke discs, but what are they like?

We think they are great, of course. But our aim at Karaoke Info is to allow independent reviewers to share their thoughts. That is because we don’t want to appear biased.

With this in mind, you can influence and help others. So, be factual if you leave a comment or two. The Karaoke Info website is fully responsive with a forum. Indeed, we cater for all your karaoke needs!

We know about the discs with no on-screen graphics, so that shouldn’t be an issue. Of course, if the label gave no indication, it would. But, other than that, what are the pros and cons of Pocket Songs Karaoke?

Pocket Songs Karaoke Songbook

Now that you have a lot of information about the Pocket Songs label, you need a song list to accompany the series.

Because of the size of this collection, our Pocket Songs songbooks are well over 200 pages. It was time-consuming to compile. However, it will hardly change now because the company stopped disc production. So, unless an odd disc turns up, this track listing will remain the same.

If you purchased some PS discs because of this review page, let us know in the comments below. Generally speaking, a couple of lines will do. Just give an honest assessment. In short, click the link below for the Pocket Songs songbook.

  1. As of January 2015, the Pocket Songs Karaoke company no longer produce karaoke discs. Indeed, no karaoke tracks at all.

    Unfortunately, as we have seen over the years, many karaoke firms have folded and ceased the production of karaoke. To see Pocket Songs disappear is very sad as they have been in the game for so long and made many good quality karaoke discs.
