The Leontyne Price-William Warfield recording (conducted by Skitch Henderson, I believe) is a souvenir of the PORGY AND BESS production that toured the Soviet Union in 1955, following a European tour.

Her performance as Bess established Price as a star. Truman Capote, who was along for the ride, wrote a book about it called THE MUSES ARE HEARD.
