Wilma Burgess was a vocalist who became popular during the late 1960s, after joining the Decca group of artists in Nashville. Producer Owen Bradley noted that her style was similar to Patsy Cline; as such, Bradley cultivated her artistry to fill the void left by Cline's untimely death. Burgess enjoyed 15 chart hits, including two that reached Top 10 Country, before she retired from recording.
Wilma Burgess recorded 115 masters in roughly 38 sessions that took place between 1962 and 1981, which includes three Decca masters that remain unissued to date. As with other artist discographies found on this website, Burgess' masters are catalogued and cross-referenced with issues by date and format. Indexes of songs, composers and session personnel are available. Some radio transcription performances of Burgess have been issued on CD, and are therefore included in the Studio Sessions page of this discography, alongside her master recordings.
Labels and formats are reported with issue titles, although catalogue prefixes are ignored. Albums of simultaneous mono and stereo issue are displayed using the stereo catalogue number. Reissues are only mentioned in the notes of the first release, unless the programming or track sequence differs from the original. Issues after 2013 are reported only if the compilation was produced by a reputable label, or if rare material is included.
