Music by Don Peake
Knight Rider theme composed by Stu Phillips and Glen A. Larson
We are proud to announce the SEVENTH and FINAL 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 episodes "Knight of the Juggernaut" and "Return to Cadiz". 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!

Enjoyed "Knight of the Juggernaut" (Season 4 opener: September 20, 1985) the episode in Chicago that introduced us to Super-Pursuit Mode and RC3. The music reminded me of Molecular Bonded Shell neutralizer and the battering ram. Then the rebuild.
"Return to Cadiz" (Season 2 Episode 6: October 30, 1983) K.I.T.T. driving on water, the slower and faster paced cruise music along with the secret hiding place music gave variety.
"FINAL volume": I understand how things were taped and stored, etc.
I would have loved riding in Las Vegas listening to "Goliath".
This brings the grand total of Knight Rider published music between Stu Phillips and Don Peake to 7.3 hours. Thank you.
