Working on "Porgy and Bess"

Porgy & Bess. I'm working on converting this from LP-to-CD. Same album cover, except the LP I have was issued by Columbia Records, not Philips. This soundtrack is not available as a CD. And in researching it, it appears very unlikely that it ever will be. . I also found an LP with the music from the Porgy & Bess Broadway musical, which goes all the way back to 1935 (the music, not the LP). It is not nearly as cool as this movie soundtrack is.

Hi, I just ran across your page while searching for Porgy & Bess information. Please know that this soundtrack has been released on CD as an import (not released in the US). If you search around hopefully you will be able to locate a copy. GOOD LUCK!

wow. Amazon-Music shows the CD for this - a single used CF - selling for $245.00. I presume this is because - as you note - it is not available in the US.

I'm happy that I am able to convert LP's to CD's. Much cheaper in this case.
