The information here isn't exhaustive, to avoid overloading you with information. Backing vocalists aren't mentioned, and the Other column largely contains only those whose names will already be familiar. As far as backing vocalists go, the Earth Band has had top names and many have continued over long periods, e.g. Stevie Lange, Maggie Ryder, Doreen & Irene Chanter, Dyan Birch, Denny Newman. I should also mention Barbara Thompson's regular contributions on sax.
Where cells are blank, the previous member continued, with the exception of the Other column.
