OK kind of a very specific question, but hoping someone here knows the answer!

I've been getting into collecting laserdiscs lately (I do have a player, and a backup one in case the current one goes kaput) and there are apparently 2 Human League laserdiscs. I have yet to get my hands on them. One is the white cover Greatest Hits from 1988 and the other is the 1995 Greatest Hits with the black cover, which has a few more tracks obviously.

My question - the 1988 one lists "Sound of the Crowd" Directed by Steve Barron as one of the videos. I have never seen a music video for that song, and am assuming that's an error, as I'm sure that video would have been included on later video compilations including the Anthology. Is this a mis-print? Did they just use a live or TOTP version? The listing for "Love Action" says TOTP so maybe they just switched those two around. Just wondering if anyone can confirm.

I don't own any THL laserdiscs (I think Joe - The Snake does) but I'm 100% sure that there isn't a SOTC video and that it's a misprint. I think you're probably right that they mixed up SOTC & Love Action.

Yes i have both of them. The sheet info say Directed by TOTP for SOTC .
I don't own a player for laser disc's so can't play to confirm buy would imagine info sheet is correct.

Thanks! I figured that was the case but was just curious. For a moment I thought maybe there was a video for SOTC that I'd never seen before!

c15 is right there's no promo video for SOTC. There are a number of TOTP videos for SOTC and these have been used on a number of GHs compilation videos both VHS tape and DVD.

I have both laserdiscs and a player. As everyone has stated the information above is correct. I digitized my laserdiscs awhile ago.
