Offered for sale is a still sealed stereo promotional copy of the 1959 LP Porgy and Bess by Diahann Carroll and the Andre Previn Trio.
About this copy: This copy of Porgy and Bess is an original 1959 stereo pressing on the United Artists label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The loose bag wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears, or holes. There is a slight bend in the upper left hand corner.
The label version is unknown. The back cover has been stamped “PROMOTION COPY NOT FOR SALE.” We don’t know if the album has a promotional label or a stock label, as we haven’t been able to find any photos of promotional copies of this fairly rare LP.
A nice copy of a rare LP by two terrific artists and a very hard album to find as a stereo first pressing.
Background: While best remembered as an actress, Diahann Carroll was also a singer, and she released a dozen albums between 1957 and 1974.
This LP, from 1959, paired her with jazz pianist Andre Previn, performing songs from Porgy and Bess.
