Kimberly Album Discography
By Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: December 7, 2011

Kimberly was owned by Precision Radiation Instruments, Inc. (PRI) of Los Angeles. The "Frankie Capp Percussion Group" consisted of Bud Shank, Robert Drasnin, Richie Kamuca, Marty Berman, and Ronny Lang on saxes, Al Porcino, Frank Beach, Ray Linn, and Conti Candoli on trumpets, Dick Noel, George Roberts, and Harry Betts on trombones, Bob Florence on piano, Buddy Clark on bass, and Emil Richards, Larry Bunker, and Frank Capp on percussion instruments. The songs were arranged by Harry Betts. Actually, all of the Frankie Capp Percussion Group albums were reissues of the Dave Pell albums on the P.R.I. label, with a percussion overdub by Frankie Capp.

Mono records were issued in the 2000 series, while stereo versions were numbered correspondingly in the 11000 series. The Kimberly label was blue with silver print, a large "K" logo on the right side of the label.
