Music by Don Peake
Knight Rider theme composed by Stu Phillips and Glen A. Larson
We are proud to announce the SIXTH volume of Don Peake's scores from the the classic 1980s television series, Knight Rider. Knight Rider, as the voice over will tell you before each and every episode, was "a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who did not exist". For four seasons we saw crime fighter Michael Knight and his fully loaded car, K.I.T.T., fight bad guys. The show made David Hasselhoff a worldwide star while Knight Rider lives on in reruns and on DVD.
This is something very special: It is not a CD, but rather a credit card-sized USB flash drive that contains wav and mp3 files of the music Don composed for the episode "Chariots of Gold". The flash drive itself has a capacity of 8 GB, but only less than 1 GB is used up by the music files, so you have over 7GB to store your own music or create a Best of Knight Rider compilation. You can do whatever you want with the extra space. Only 250 of each volume were made, and a lot of them were sold at the Knights of Atlanta fan con when Don introduced these new gadgets. Limited quantities remain!
This is not a Perseverance Records release, but a CD that Don Peake produced himself and that we are distributing for him thru an extraordinary deal with Universal. Thanks to Philip Cohen for this!

"Chariot of Gold" (Season 1 Episode 19: February 25, 1983 - the one before "White Bird"). The hero music changing to the eerie K.I.T.T. lost it music at Helios gave that sense of mystery of the episode. Added dinner music.
