The Kingston Trio is the Kingston Trio's debut album, released in 1958 (see 1958 in music). In 1997, all of the tracks from The Kingston Trio were included in The Guard Years 10-CD box set issued by Bear Family Records from the Hungry i as a two-album CD in 2001.

It's easy to rate the group's debut album too low, since its two best-known songs ("Tom Dooley," "Scotch and Soda") have had no shortage of appearances elsewhere in the decades since, and the group went on to cut more than 20 additional albums in their prime years. A little less polished and accomplished than, say, the music that Terry Gilkyson and the Easy Riders were cutting at Columbia around this time, it makes up for those shortcomings with youthful spring, exuberance, freshness, and a number of song choices that spoke of a new generation of folk singing --.

One song title differs on the record label, from that on the album sleeve-track B3 is titled "Santy Anno." on the label and "Santo Anno" on the sleeve.
Cover is stock US.

US release specifies writer credits for B2 as Lee Hays and Carl Sandburg.
Neither wrote the song as it was originally a traditional folk song from the Bahamas. Carl Sandburg included it in a collection of folk songs, "The American Songbag" in 1927 and Lee Hays (a member of the Weavers) helped popularize the song in a rendition released in 1950 titled "Wreck of the John B". The Kingston Trio version was the inspiration for the Beach Boys' 1965 version: "Sloop John B".
