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). Jimmie Burton, also known as "Arkansas Jimmie" who recorded 4 songs for Texan TNT label in 1956-57 ("No Love Have I", "I've Got The Blues Tonight", TNT 142/143 / "Let's Pretend" and "Run Along", TNT 146/147) must also be another musician. In addition, 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 (for instance with Dale Hawkins, Bob Luman, Ricky Nelson, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, The Everly Brothers, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Elvis Presley, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Lee Lewis and a countless number of others) are not included.
