Default Gobliiins & Gobliins 2 CD versions won't work for me

I just found the "Sierra Classics" CD versions of the first two Goblins games at the back of my cupboard. WOO HOO!

I've been trying to get them to work in Windows XP but have had no luck.

Gobliiins starts up fine, the opening "movie" works okay, but the game itself re-defines the word "choppy" (Instead of 80 frames per second, I'm getting about 1 frame every two seconds!)

Gobliins 2 on the other hand won't even start-up. It just hangs with a black screen. (The CD isn't even being acessed)

I've downloaded Goblins 3 from this site (great site, BTW) and it works fine (maybe because it doesn't include CD music, speech, etc.)

I've tried running these games with VDMSound, but there's no difference.
In Win95 Compatibility mode there's also no change.
And in DosBOX the CD doesn't seem to be recognised (even though I've mounted it on drive D).

I was hoping someone here had an idea, an inkling, or even an inspiration as to how I can run these CD versions.
