2001

(Vigotone / Spank / Repro-Man)

  2001 should have been one of Vigotone's finest hours, but sadly, this year was to be Vigotone's last.  A new Smile box set was promised, but it never saw the light of day.  What we did get were a couple of new box sets, and the Spank label made its triumphant return!

2001 continued with more real CDs for the Japanese market.

The 2000 & 2001 Japanese CDs have reversed matrix numbers, a large "mirrored" area, and "scuff marks" of varying lengths.  These scuff marks may have been caused by the machine that pressed them (probably by some sort of clamp).
