I used to have their first release on a cassette. I left it back home, so I don't remember much of it.
I bought Hungry, also on a cassette, here in Canada at a second-hand store, and I know I liked it a lot. Played it until the tape got chewed up. I constantly had my eyes peeled for a used CD, but never come across one, which is usually a strong indication the album is loved by its owners.
You are right, I don't think I've ever seen a used CD for either of their first two albums.
