Belafonte, Harry/ Lena Horne - Porgy And Bess.Vendor: RCA
RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON RCA 1959.
RCA LPM 2019 made in Denmark. Vinyl EX. Cover EX.
The first of Belafonte's duet albums with female performers, this one paired two attractive black American singers at the peak of their respective talents. As with Belafonte's later albums, the selections consist of individual performances as well as duets. The subject matter is songs from George Gershwin's operetta Porgy and Bess, capitalizing on the popularity of the Columbia film released that year, starring Belafonte's best friend Sidney Poitier and his Carmen Jones co-star, Dorothy Dandridge. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Belafonte
