Audio preservation of the Italian laserdiscs

I have an idea that you can preserve the audio tracks of Italian laserdiscs as well as other languages.

It would be useful to create a space or a base for the preservation of Italian audio tracks.

Many laserdiscs produced by Philips are unfortunately starting to suffer from laser root.

Do you think this could be an interesting project?
Actually I thought about this idea many years ago... agree that there are some Italian tracks on laserdisc that have a better quality than DVD - like PCM 1441kbps vs DD 192kbps.

Title that came to mind are Raiders of the Lost Ark original dubbing - that, if I'm not mistaken, is only available in DD 2.0 224kbps, and would benefit from the Philips and/or the Pioneer edition - and The Blues Brothers, that "may" have the original Italian track on the Pioneer edition.

Have you a list of notable titles that should need a preservation?
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

I had thought of the Blade Runner track on the Italian laserdisc
What about Robin Hood? I'm aware that the first (non-extended) edition had the original dubbing, but IIRC it was only DD 2.0 surround - probably 192kbps; so the Italian laserdisc PCM would be a nice preservation!

Forgot to mention: Cliffhanger! AFAIK no original dubbing on any digital media.

all interesting titles
...then I read somewhere that Cliffhanger in UHD-BD has the original lossless 2.0 mix... must discover if it's true!
