(detailed list of sessions) 
This is the list of the sessions I know Tommy Eyre appears... I've classified them into several categories:

Sessions with former/current bandmates:

So when they started recording a new album, Assault attack, former colleague Tommy Eyre was called to play keyboards.

Naked thunder was recorded with great guitarist Steve Morris, friend Roger Glover, Tommy Eyre (keyboards) and Simon Phillips (drums). It also features John Gustafson on backing vocals and Peter Robinson on keyboards. After the album was recorded, Tommy joined Ian Gillan's band, as we can read in the bio page.

This was their first album, and it contains collaborations by fine singer Maddy Prior (from Steeleye Span) and Tommy Eyre (keyboards on three tracks, 'Plain dealing', 'Fast lane driver' and 'Song without a band'). The album was produced by Hugh Murphy.

Ah, for those interested in knowing... The three members rejoined Lindisfarne again in 1978, after four albums as Jack The Lad.

Appearing here, John Turnbull (guitar), Rod King (pedal steel guitar), Gary Taylor (bass), Tommy Eyre (keyboards), Graham Smith (violin), Andrew Steele (drums), Jon Field (percussion). 
Gabor Szabo
Gabor Szabo is a superb jazz guitarist. This is a live album recorded at The Troubadour in Hollywood, California, and for some reason unknown to me, Tommy is featured as a guest in a track (the bassist Wolfgang Melz played with Mark-Almond, but not in the same period as Tommy). This was the live lineup: Gabor Szabo (guitar)
Wolfgang Melz (bass)
John Dentz (drums)
Mailto Correa (percussion)

Dave Cousins (guitar, vocals)
Dave Lambert (guitar, vocals)
Chas Cronk (bass)
Rod Coombes (drums)
Mailto Correa (percussion)
They had just lost their keyboardist John Hawken, so that's why so many keyboardists are guesting in the album: Rick Wakeman (keyboards, former member), Tommy Eyre (keyboards) and John Mealing (keyboards, from superb band If). Also featuring Jack Emblow (accordion), Tony Carr (percussion). A pity this album has never been reissued on CD

Halcyon days is a 2CD compilation, and it includes some obscure tracks, as well as their more famous songs (plus some songs from Dave Cousins solo album and songs from Hudson-Ford). The list of musicians is amazing. I'll only mention the members of my Olympus that play here: Miller Anderson (guitar), Nicky Hopkins (keyboards), Tommy Eyre (keyboards), John Hawken (keyboards), Blue Weaver (keyboards), Jon Hiseman (drums). Oh, beware, there are two different editions (the American vs. the British edition), with many differences.

B.B. King
A living blues legend. I've only been able to attend one of his gigs. At that time, he was 62, but he behaved like a child, enjoying while playing. After two and a half hours of endless performance, his musicians convinced him that he should finish the concert and leave the stage. He still wanted to keep on playing. :)

King of the blues is a 4CD boxset, comprising tracks from his very long career. So, the list of musicians featured is just endless. Tommy Eyre appears here because of the inclusion of the track 'Since I met you baby' recorded by Gary Moore with B.B. King guesting. Other musicians who'll be covered in my site someday are: Kenny Aaronoff (drums), Wilbur Bascomb (bass), Merry Clayton (vocals), Bob Daisley (bass), Martin Drover (trumpet), Cornell Dupree (guitar), Venetta Fields (vocals), Anton Fig (drums), Jim Gordon (drums), Wayne Jackson (sax), Jim Keltner (drums), Carol Kenyon (vocals), Clydie King (vocals), Al Kooper (keyboards), Russ Kunkel (drums), Michael Landau (guitar), Will Lee (bass), Andrew Love (horns), Hugh McCracken (guitar), Frank Mead (horns), Gary Moore (guitar), Dean Parks (guitar), Nick Payne (horns), Nick Pentelow (sax), Bernard Purdie (drums), Neil Stubenhaus (bass), Klaus Voormann (bass), Ernie Watts (sax). This will take me my whole life! :)

People such as The Rolling Stones (with Darryl Jones on bass), Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Van Morrison, Tracy Chapman, or Paul Carrack, to name a few. Lots of great backing musicians here: Neil Hubbard (guitar), Michael Landau (guitar), Johnny Lee Schell (guitar), Hugh McCracken (guitar), Marty Stuart (guitar), Dean Parks (guitar), Randy Jacobs (guitar), Reggie McBride (bass), Pino Palladino (bass), Reggie McBride (bass), James 'Hutch' Hutchinson (bass), Tommy Eyre (keyboards on 6 songs), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Billy Payne (keyboards), Jools Holland (keyboards), Jon Cleary (keyboards), Leon Pendarvis (keyboards), Paulinho DaCosta (percussion), Lenny Castro (percussion), Darrell Leonard (trumpet), Joe Sublett (sax), Mickey Raphael (harmonica), Jim Keltner (drums), Tony Braunagel (drums), Andy Newmark (drums), Kenny Aaronoff (drums), Steve Jordan (drums).

The album was recorded to raise money for the Save The Children Fund. 
VV.AA. (various artists)

Featuring Mick Weaver (song 'Mercy, mercy, mercy'), Joey De Francesco, John Medeski, Art Neville (from Neville Brothers), Michael Omartian, Jimmy Smith, the great Mike Finnigan, Ricky Peterson, Larry Goldings, Reuben Wilson, and Jack McDuff, the band Galactic, and Tommy Eyre.

Along year 2000, some albums will be released featuring Tommy Eyre. New albums by Marino, and Keb Mo, plus some others.

I still need to confirm if Tommy also played in some session for Hall & Oates, as well as with George Harrison, Mick Jagger or Allison Moyet.

I need to include his playing in a Procol Harum album. 


Chuck Kirkpatrick He recorded some tracks in 1999 with Tommy Eyre (keyboards), Bob Glaub (bass) and Tony Braunagel (drums). 
Marino
Marino is a gifted guitarist who has played in albums by Santana (he also composed the theme for Spanish Olympic Games in 1992!). He has been recording tracks for a forthcoming album, produced by Tommy Eyre (also playing keyboards), and featuring Scarlet Rivera and great singer Alex Ligertwood.
