Notes

An ‘Exclusive Commemorative CD’ for subscribers to The Spectator - a long running (since 1828) weekly British magazine which focuses primarily on culture and politics. This, together with the fact that it comes in a sturdy card sleeve with different cover art (& different catalogue numbers etc) is what differentiates it from the almost identical release: www.discogs.com/Various-The-Gershwins-Porgy-and-Bess/release/2613616 which was distributed via different channels.

Photos from the production and the following text on the rear of case:

The Gershwins’ PORGY AND BESS, a bittersweet love story set in the Deep South, is one of the towering achievements of 20th century theatre.
