Note: The guitarist James Burton is not to be confused to the Canadian country artist named Jimmy Burton who has released at least one LP titled "Man In Black" (Ranch RA 6204). Also Jimmy Burton on Vi-Flo Records ("Little Pretty Baby" / "What Good Is Love", Vi-Flo 804), Prescott Records ("It's Easy To Remember" / "La Bomba" Prescott F-10551/F-10552) and Guyden Records in 1975 ("You Done Me Wrong" / "The Room Next To Mine", Guyden G-TWE-6006, "If I Had A Reason For Leaving" / "If I'm A Fool For Leaving (I'll Be Twice The Fool To Stay)", Guyden G-TWE-6009) are very likely other persons of the same name.

Excepting the releases by Jimmie Haskell & His Orchestra, The Shindigs and The Pebbles, James Burton's session works are not included.
