    Thanks for letting me know! I checked out ebay before I asked and it did seem to be the case that everything was only on vinyl, but then when I googled specifically for CDs it seemed to be suggested that I might be able to find them on CD as well? It may have been the sites in question lumping vinyl and CD together though.

    It will be a difficult task - most of the discography exists only on vinyl, including the reeditions. You can always check discogs for more information.

    Anyone able to offer help finding her music on CD? So far I've only managed to get hold of a single and a collection album.

    A deep loneliness and sadness through her voice and words. I hope she's fine now. (3)
