Re-release of a classic
If you like the musical, this is easily one of the best recordings. A true classic. Note that this version is based on the single CD release version of only 15 songs. It is not the 2 record collection that was originally produced on vinyl.
Porgy and Bess with Ella and Louis
I've heard probably twenty different versions of "Summertime", and this one with Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong is one of the best. And I mean, even better than Miles Davis' version, almost as good as the actual opera recording. But there's even more here from this great American opera, really enjoyable tracks like "My Man's Gone Now", "It Ain't Necessarily So" and "I'm on My Way". These two could really sing.
Where's The Rest of the Album??????
This is a pheonominal recording, but only a partial album???? Where's the rest of the album???? Getting a little tired of only finding partial albums here...
