RCA VideoDisc VaporWare List


This is a list of RCA VideoDiscs that are not in the US CED Title Database, the UK CED Title Database, or the Test Disc List but which did appear in publications and previews as either being available or soon to be available for the RCA VideoDisc system. It's safe to assume that none of the NTSC titles were ever available for retail purchase in the United States, and I believe very few of these were even test pressed in small quantities. A few of the NTSC titles are PAL/UK releases that were mistakenly listed in US catalogs. The PAL/UK VaporWare titles near the bottom of the page were listed in some United Kingdom forthcoming releases catalogs, but appear to have been canceled when RCA abandoned the CED system.

Please email me at if you have additional information confirming the existence of any of these titles.

PAL/UK VaporWare Titles:

Although the following PAL/UK titles are in the database complete with stock number and sound format, their true existence is questionable:

Funny Girl {77080420394}
Glen Campbell Live {77080445021}
Kid Creole and the Coconuts- Live* {77080345031}
Meatloaf Live* {77080345017}

Mastering records from the Rockville Road plant indicate that copper masters of the following PAL/UK titles were made. With RCA's abrupt departure from the UK market, these masters were recycled, and it's highly unlikely any discs were ever pressed:
