 Mother Superior gigged non-stop across the UK and Europe and recorded an album 'Lady Madonna' in '75 for Polydor.

 In June 1976 line up changes began and the band was no longer entirely female. Lesley originally from New Zealand left to join Australian female band The Daughters of Zeuss and then Garbo. Audrey became part of another all women group Brandy and then the Ivy Benson Orchestra.

  The remaining Jackie and Jackie rhythm section auditioned many musicians before choosing Simon Etchell (keyboards), Janis Sharp (guitar) and Kate Buddeke (vocals). This reincarnation was together for about six months when Janis left to join her husband Wilson in a band called Axess.

 Pete Chapman took over as guitarist until the demise of the band a year later in December 1977.
