Subject: RE: Porgy/Bess? Lyrics: Summertime, when the liv
Way back in (I think) the 60's Nina Simone recorded an LP, I again think, (whew) called 'Porgy & Bess'. I suspect that "Summertime" might be on it as well as "Mississippi Goddam" & "Pirate Jenny". Probably haven't heard her do these in 30 yrs & with my faulty memory I can still remember how mighty she sounded. Barry
