By 1984, George Gershwin's "American Folk Opera" Porgy and Bess had received many recordings of varying length and in various styles, from full-scale treatments in a classical vein to abridged versions that oriented it toward show music, jazz, and pop. A work first heard on the Broadway stage, it had been adopted by opera companies, and several of its songs had become standards with many recordings by pop singers.
