Details: Kitty Wells' 1965 'stereophonic' album, "Burning Memories," was released on DECCA Records. Label sticker print looks a little off, but otherwise this is in fantastic condition: the inner sleeve also looks new. Great condition LP. Album is still in shrink, but open.

Description: "The title-track of Wells' album was originally penned by Mel Tillis with Wayne Walker, this song about moving on from a relationship by destroying all evidence it ever happened was a Top 10 country hit for Tillis in 1977, not long after he was crowned CMA Entertainer of the Year. But it had already reached Number Two in 1964 in a lush pop production for Ray Price. Others who would record it included Waylon Jennings in 1964, Kitty Wells a year later, and Jerry Lee Lewis in 1969. In 2002, Pam Tillis included her version of the mournful breakup tune on It’s All Relative: Tillis Sings Tillis." S.B., Rolling Stone

"Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American pioneering female country music singer. She broke down a female barrier in country music with her 1952 hit recording, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" which also made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts, and turned her into the first female country superstar. “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” would also be her first of several pop cross over hits. Wells is the only female artist to be awarded top female vocalist awards for 14 consecutive years. Her chart topping hits continued until the mid-1960s, paving the way for and inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s.

Wells ranks as the sixth-most successful female vocalist in the history of the Billboard country charts, according to historian Joel Whitburn's book The Top 40 Country Hits. In 1976, she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1991, she became the third country music artist, after Roy Acuff and Hank Williams, and the eighth woman to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Wells' success and influence on country music garnered her a title "Queen of Country Music'." - Discography of American Historical Recordings
