6Although he appeared in the original production, John "Bubbles" Sublett did not sing the role of Sportin' Life in the so-called "original cast album" of "Porgy and Bess", made in 1940. He was replaced on that 78-RPM album by Avon Long, who then went on to sing the role in both the 1942 Broadway revival of "Porgy and Bess", and in the first 3-LP recording of the work, made in 1951, the most complete version recorded up to that time. Sublett finally recorded his two big songs from "Porgy and Bess" on the 1963 hi-fi/stereo LP of excerpts from the opera, starring Leontyne Price and William Warfield.
7He could not read music; composer George Gershwin had to teach him the music for the role of Sportin' Life in "Porgy and Bess" note by note.
8Retired from show business in 1967 after a stroke that left him partially paralyzed.
