"High Society" was extremely successful at the time of its release and ever since, it has enjoyed great popularity.

The glamorous score by Cole Porter has also been a bestseller since its release on LP back in 1956. Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra handle their vocal assignments in their superb manner, and Louis Armstrong & His All-Stars also shine in the film. Bing singing True Love to Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra's renditions of You're Sensational and Mind If I Make Love to You stand as the musical highlights.

This CD contains all the original music from the movie soundtrack and two additional studio versions of the most popular tunes. You can also enjoy a charming introduction by Grace Kelly and some comments by Crosby and Sinatra on Cole Porter's music. This was Porter's memorable comeback, fine music that has long outlasted the movie it was composed for.

Recorded with the MGM Studio Orchestra, conducted by Johnny Green.
