(Vigotone / Madman / Classics Revisited)
1998 saw the return of the Vigotone label. Pegboy was retired and no new releases on that label were forthcoming. There were two releases on the Madman label, which were its last.
Mitsui Gold CDRs gave way to Kodak Gold, until Vigotone settled on standard Mitsui CDRs. (It's hard to know exactly when Vigotone made the switch between the different brands of CDR, but it's likely the Kodak Gold discs started with Vigotone 163 (Heroes & Vibrations) and went until Vigotone 170/171 (We Had Known A Lion). (Madman's Got Any Toothpicks was also a Kodak Gold disc.))
Standard Mitsui CDRs probably made their debut with Vigotone 172/173 (The Ultimate Beatles Christmas Collection).
There is a rather oddball Vigotone release this year too (as it doesn't follow the typical Vigotone CDR pattern).
Tales From The Who is this odd release. The first version of it had a printed label. And for this printed-label version, Vigotone used a CDR for it that it doesn't seem to have used for any other release. This CDR has no brand name on its inner hub and its data side is dark green. The inner hub will have a serial/batch number similar to this (but probably not the exact same): 2C801276072A11.
Only the printed label version has this type of disc. The later release has the usual stamped label on a standard Mitsui CDR.
