Star Quest Karaoke Introduction

Star Quest Karaoke is yet another set of CDGs from those heady days when labels started to flood the market.

All in all, we know of just eight discs in this series. Even though the Star Quest Karaoke firm has long gone, we found the eight-disc set available online in August 2014.

In May 2017, after an update on the Karaoke Info website, we found they were selling as a new purchase on Amazon. So, this shows that these labels will keep reappearing.

That check showed they sold for $29.99 in the US and £18.50 in the UK. They are also cheaper on eBay. But we only saw used discs there, which wasn’t surprising since the company ceased production long ago. Second-hand CDGs are not a problem if they are in good condition. But it’s always worthwhile to ask questions before purchasing used discs.

In brief, nobody here at Karaoke Info has heard of the Star Quest Karaoke series. However, an Australian member on the old forums provided us with the discs for reviewing purposes.

Star Quest Karaoke Discs

To clarify, we list the Star Quest Karaoke disc ID numbers (prefixes) as he shows them in his songbooks. The prefixes look good, so most karaoke jockeys (KJs) will use these prefix numbers:

  • SQ0001
  • SQ0002
  • SQ0003
  • SQ0004
  • SQ0005
  • SQ0006
  • SQ0007
  • SQ0008

Star Quest Karaoke Review

When we set out to review the Star Quest Karaoke discs, we had no idea what to expect. However, they have songs by big-name artists such as Frank Sinatra, Cher, and the Bee Gees. So, they have to be good, yeah? Well, let’s find out!

Star Quest Karaoke SQ0008 Disc - Frank Sinatra Songs.

The splash screen has on-screen graphics that are big and bold. On it, you will read, “The Highest Quality Karaoke Star Quest Presents (Song Title)”.

The end screen says the same but replaces the song title with “Getting There Never Sounded So Good.”

The on-screen lyrics largely matched the beat on all our sample tracks. But we feel that on some occasions, there was a slight lag. In effect, there was nothing to complain about too much.

Indeed, the lag is hardly noticeable if you choose a song you know well. The abstract artwork on the sleeves is weird and meaningless. Meanwhile, the CDGs are plain and boring.

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 SQ0002-01 – Cher – If I Could Turn Back Time.

Videos are subject to change!

  • Music Content: 4

Desirability Factor

We know there are better karaoke discs, but these may become collector’s items down the line.

While these discs are still available, we need as much information about them as possible. Of course, it doesn’t matter that they are pretty old. So, if you have this Star Quest Karaoke disc set, please consider writing a review about them yourself. That applies even if you only have the odd one.

Blowing Your Own Trumpet**

This is what is shown on the back of these karaoke discs.

“Within every song, there is an ambience that captures the audience and transcends musically to the heart and soul, a feeling that cannot be explained by musical notes and lyrical rhyme.”

The label continues, and we quote:

“We make karaoke albums, not karaoke discs.”

SQ0006 - Josh Groban CDG.

Well, talk about blowing your own trumpet! But if you’ve got it, flaunt it. That’s what we say. Indeed, these discs get our famous seal of approval and are a collector’s item, especially if you have a complete set.
