On some records Louis Killen is listed as Lou Killen but in this discography I have always used the proper name. In her last years she changed her name to Louisa Jo Killen but, as all of her recordings were before that, I chose to stick to her former name in this discography.

Non-essential albums, e.g. various artists compilations with Louis Killen tracks easily available elsewhere, are listed in grey instead of black.
