Technical note: While CDs were predominantly glass mastered and moulded in a US Nimbus-facility until 2000 (Mould SID code 24xx, 'Nimbus' quote in the matrix), releases from 2000 and later were manufactured by JVC Disc America (Mould SID Code 41xx). Please take into consideration that a title originally issued until 1999 has to be considered as a 2000+ repress if Mould SID Code 41xx appears.
