The album featured no black singers at all, even though the opera was written for a mostly African-American cast (the whites in the opera speak, but do not sing). It was recorded by RCA Victor on September 12 and September 13, 1950. The album was originally released on one twelve-inch 33 1⁄3 rpm LP with the catalog number LM 1124.

RCA Victor Orchestra/Robert Russell Bennett Reissue Producer and Restoration Engineer: Mark Obert-Thorn NAXOS HISTORICAL GREAT OPERA RECORDINGS . 10287-88. Opera, folk opera or musical? All these descriptions have been used to describe Porgy and Bess. Personally, I think ones answer is largely determined by early seeing or hearing experiences.

Highlights from Porgy and Bess, the 1935 album of George Gershwins opera, was recorded just days after Porgy and Bess opened on Broadway on October 10,1935. While the opera was performed by an all-African American singing cast, Gershwins involvement is clearly stated on the album cover, which reads Recorded under the supervision of the composer. Naxos Records re-released the album on CD along with the complete 1951 recording, Robert Merrill, baritone Risë Stevens, mezzo-soprano Robert Shaw Chorale RCA Victor Orchestra Robert Russell Bennett, conductor Track listing and synopsis from Naxos reissue.
