The name John Moore shows up on some country & western productions from Nashville in the second half of the '70s, but it is not the same fellow who picks progressive bluegrass on mandolin and guitar beginning in the early '90s. The obscure keyboardist and background singer is a good excuse to bring up a fine Mickey Newbury album, Sailor, in which the Moore presence evokes the usual image of a record producer, hunched over a telephone and asking, "Can we get more Moore?" Alan Moore was the arranger on this record, hiring John Moore. Bob Moore played bass, something that can be said about a lot of country albums.
