Vigotone / Spank / Slick-O

  1995 was a pretty good year for Vigotone.  Three special box sets were released on the Vigotone label and Spank saw its share of interesting releases.   Spank was "retired" after this year for six years, returning for a couple of cool releases in 2001.  This year also saw the Vigotone reissue of two titles that were originally on the Howdy! label.  And, Slick-O made a one-time comeback!

The 1995 discs are basically the same as 1994 discs, but Vigotone started to laminate labels onto them.  These laminated labels covered the entire disc, hiding the matrix numbers.  The matrix numbers could still be seen on the rear of the disc (where they'd appear backwards).

Vigotone "Early-style" reissues

Vigotone appears to have reissued two titles that were originally released in 1991 on the Howdy label.  These two releases have 1995 copyrights on them, yet they have the 1996 disc style (backwards matrix numbers).  Unlike the 1990 "early Vigotone" releases, these CDs have clear inner areas.  Also, the matrix numbers on these CDs match the catalog numbers (something none of the 1990 releases can claim).
