unfortunately not my little panda chum... :(

well...i should qualify that - I've been trying to get hold of these for so long now it hurts. They really are The Grail as far as I'm concerned, software, (as far as I know) never had a CD release and, given it's fairly poor sales at the time and the fact that it was released during the "least cool" period of the band, I'm almost resigned to never seeing this little gem in shiny plastic.

Wrecking Ball on the other hand did secure a CD release through "great expectations" CD's back in the early nineties, I used to have a copy of this which I lost. It's been deleted for a long time now however it's worth scouring e-bay or similar sites for.

The only thing I can think of is if enough people contact those nice people at Evangeline records who gave us the wonderful Manhole CD release..hmm..I think I might do that just now :)

maybe i could find it on ebay or something. i dunno.
i might send a letter to evangeline or just straight to grace altough i doubt she'd pay very much attention seeing as i have tried that before.
oh well. if you hear anything tho please tell me sky.

actually I've been thinking about it and my reply was possibly a little despondent..

I mean...if anyone had told me even a couple of years ago that "Planet Earth Rock & Roll Orchestra" would be available on CD then I wouldn't have believed them..yet here I am listenin' to it..thanks to the good people over at the jefferson starship site who had it reissued.

the moral being, never say never :)

and, of course, if I find out anything I will let you know.

Not sure if you were able to download Software or Wreckingball.. but I have mp3s of the entire album of Software, though they're not the best quality, but they're listenable. :)

A friend of mine sent them to me, I believe a friend of his had the album and somehow managed to record them from there. If you're not able to get them, pm me.

Hi there:

If you go to http://www.gemm.com there is a treasure of out of print CD's that can be found as well as vinyl!!

They have merchants from all over the world post items and yo ucan check their rating/ship time and feedback.

Registration is free and sometimes you will find the impossible.

If you are looking for Grace Slick you can type Grace Slick and also try Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship.

Have fun and happy hunting,
