The Kingston Trio discography

The Kingston Trio's discography is large and diverse, covering over 50 years and many record labels. Their early—and primary—output was virtually all recorded on Capitol Records and produced by Voyle Gilmore. After their release from Capitol in 1964, they recorded four albums for Decca.
