Selections from George Gershwin's folk opera Porgy and Bess

Highlights from Porgy and Bess es un álbum de música de 1935 que contiene la ópera de George Gershwin, titulada Porgy and Bess. Esta ópera debutó en Broadway el 10 de octubre de 1935. Mientras la ópera era interpretada por un elenco completamente afroamericano, el álbum de 1935 presentaba principalmente a cantantes de ópera de raza blanca. El involucramiento de Gershwin queda claramente señalado en la carátula del álbum, el cual señala "Grabado bajo la supervisión del compositor".

Las grabaciones originalmente fueron lanzadas en cuatro discos de vinilo de 12 pulgadas y 78 rpm. RCA Victor le asignó los números de serie 11878 Victor, 11879 Victor, 11880 Victor y 11881 Victor a los discos.
