1996

Vigotone / Pegboy / Madman

  1996 was a year of firsts (and lasts).  This was the first year of the Pegboy label.  Pegboy replaced Vigotone for two years as the premier Vigo-label.  1996 also ushered in another new label: Madman.

1996 was also the final year for standard CDs.  Beginning in 1997, all releases (and subsequent re-issues) were to be on CDR.

Since Vigotone continued to laminate labels onto the discs (making the matrix number unreadable from the front), in 1996 the matrix numbers were reversed, making them appear "normal" from the back of the disc.  Apart from the reversed matrix number, the discs themselves look like the ones used in 1994 & 1995.
