Frand DeVol's Hustle/The Longest Yard
11-May-2017 - Quartet Records and Paramount Pictures are glad to present the world premiere release of the very cool score composed by Frank De Vol for Robert Aldrich’s neo-noir 1975 film Hustle. Hustle is about two weary and bitter LAPD detectives who are assigned to investigate the death of a young woman whose body is found on an isolated beach. They conclude, with the support of the coroner's report, that the victim, a hooker and known drug user named Gloria Hollinger, committed suicide using pills.  As a bonus, they have included the short score for The Longest Yard (1974), another De Vol-Aldrich-Reynolds-Paramount collaboration. For this cult sports comedy film about a workaholic convict who recruits a group of fellow prisoners to play football against their guards, De Vol composed another catchy tune as a main theme, along with some brief underscore cues and adaptations of famous Americans marches. Sadly, the session tapes of this soundtrack are long missing, so the only source that could be used was the mono stems, beautifully restored by Chris Malone for this release. The package includes a 16-page full-color booklet.
