Inevitably there is some duplication across the concert recordings but overall I think he did an excellent job of varying the set-list over the years.

There’s not much consistency between the members of the backing bands but I should point out:

  1. Albert Collins guest starred in 1990 and played on songs 6, 7, 8, 9 and11.
  2. In 1990 and 1995 his band included saxophone players and, in 1990 a trumpet player as well. The last three concerts are played as a four piece band with Moore on guitar and vocals plus keyboards, bass and drums.
