Dearly departed, please help me find the work in which you each have been immortalised. May you all rest in peace.  We the living miss you all.  In loving memory.  Bless you all!
Names I've deleted from the lists must've gotten the message!  Must be working then.

Honourable mentions: Mariska Veres from Shocking Blue who I didn't know qualified for the list until after I found their CD.*  Then original Gentle Giant drummer Martin Smith as I found their first two albums on CD and forgot to put him here knowing that he's gone too.  Then Peter Haycock from ELO Part II as I finally found that as well.*
