KHCD-ST011 (MONO) - The Strange One - Music from the Soundtrack of the 1957 Columbia Pictures Movie Production - Music composed and conducted by Kenyon Hopkins - The film, based on the story "End as a Man" by Calder Willingham, is about the strange power that a cadet has over underclassmen at a Southern military academy. This film marked the debuts of Ben Gazzara (the star of the film) and George Peppard. Kenyon Hopkin's score blends jazz with some (then) emerging rock and rockabilly styles with a searing touch, befitting the film's unsettling storyline. The mono Coral LP used for this transcription was in fair condition, but the end result, after some careful restoration, is very satisfying. Click on the thumbnail for an MP3 sample. A welcome reissue.
