Re: [just-a-minute] just a minute cds and tapes
going through the various questions
There is a list of all the CDs and tapes here
ISBN numbers - I don't know.
I don't think the first ever episode in 1967 has ever been released for
sale. I believe that the producers listened to it with a view to
releasing it for the first Just A Classic Minute release, but found it
wasn't up to standard, either in content or in audio quality. If you
mean the first tape release, the first ever was Silver Minutes, released
in 1992, and then "Just A Minute - Canned Laughter" was released at the
end of 1993.
if you're happy with tapes then I think I'm correct in saying all the
releases except those first two are available through amazon.co.uk and
presumably through other similar sites.
JAM2 was originally on cassette only but was re-released last year on
CD. I think there's no particular reason why the earlier editions were
cassette only except that cassettes were far more popular 10 years ago
than they are today.
Hope that answers all your points!

Thank you for the fast reply. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. I was
talking about the "Just a Minute - Canned laughter" tape (I think).
I would like to find a copy to complete my collection but I don't know
how or where. Searching for "JAM" brings up too many false positives,
so I was hoping an ISBN would help me.

never continued to re-release JAM3, JAM4, etc on cd now that CDs are
more popular. I think JAM2 is now out of print on both cassette and
