People, my love for lists knows no bounds and this is one of my oldest lists. It is in some sort of vaguely chronological order, with more information for some shows than others (because that first concert was about 30 years ago and who can remember).  Paléo and Montreux are grouped at the end.

Please believe me that I understand completely this is here more for me than for anyone else (although there is a small “wink” to someone forever dear to me).
