ALBUM INFO

This album consists of tracks taken from Porgy and Bess (1959) and Diahann Carroll (1960).
Produced by Jack Lewis.
This is the original back sleeve notes:

The year 1962 will remain a memorable one for Diahann Carroll, for it marked the period when complete recognition came to one of the truly fine artists of our time. Hand-picked by Richard Rodgers to star in his Broadway show, "No Strings", Diahann drew rave reviews from the critics and public for her outstanding performance as a high fashion model in what proved to be one of the smash shows of the year.
  This final accolade was actually long overdue. For Diahann had already conquered the swank night club audiences from coast to coast; had achieved a very special niche as an outstanding recording artist, and in the 1961 had starred in the motion picture, "Paris Blues", again winning applause from critics and public alike. 
  In this album Diahann joins another outstanding performer and talent, Andre Previn to present a program of modern-styled music for your listening enjoyment.
  And, just as the fabulous Diahann and Previn are stars, so the music represents the work of some of the finest composers of our time - men like George and Ira Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Larry Hart, Cole Porter, Alex Stordahl and Sammy Cahn.
  We are sure you will find THE FABULOUS DIAHANN CARROLL one of the best albums you have listened to in a long while, and that you will agree it is further showcasing for a star who has found permanence in the world of entertainment.
