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.
