Notes

This version is an early 1955 reissue based on label style that ran from 1955-60, but still housed in the first state cover. This was the first iteration of the "shaded dog" labels with "Nipper" in full color. Second state cover can be seen here: Gershwin - Porgy And Bess. The second state cover included releases on both red and maroon 1955-60 labels.
