I've looked all around, but it seems like these two titles haven't been fully archived by any group yet (as far as I know, of course).

[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login and the [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login were some of the earliest known CD-ROM games to be released (as documented in [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login). Both utilized a mixed-mode format - all the game data was stored on the data track and all the digital speech data was stored on a single large audio track.

Why the history lesson? Well, because there were in fact two different releases of Mixed-Up Mother Goose VGA CD (no, not [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login one), both employing a different method of storing and playing its digital voice samples - a red mixed-mode disc and a blue 'data' disc (all the digital voice samples were simply stored as data files on the CD). Apparently, the audio quality of the red mixed-mode disc was superior to that of the blue data disc according to [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login. The blue data disc is much more common than the red mixed-mode disc, being the the version they included in the [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login collection.

While the blue data disc version of Mixed-Up Mother Goose has at least been identified and dumped by [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login, Jones in the Fast Lane and the early red mixed-mode disc version of Mixed-Up Mother Goose VGA still remain unaccounted for.

Does anyone have copies of these? If not, I may have to scour eBay or elsewhere to get my hands on a legitimate copy in the hopes of preserving these obscure treasures.
