PRODUCER AND RECORDING ENGINEER - SAM C. PHILLIPS
many years Wanda Ballman was best known to Sun Records aficionados as the composer of Carl Perkins' "I'm Sorry I'm Not Sorry". However, a deeper dig into the vaults revealed that Ms. Ballman had a fairly long lasting affiliation with Sun Records.
Even a single was contemplated at some point. Over the years she continued to pitch material to Sun and Sam and actually had two sessions of her own at 706 Union during 1957, during which five of her compositions were recorded.
We have resurrected four of those titles - a fifth appears to be lost. Wanda gave it
a shot during which time she revealed herself to be a honky tonk singer at heart.
