Re: SOUTHERN KNIGHTS ATLANTA Don Peake Exclusive Announcemen

Also I love the slow, relaxed, stripped-down variation of the main theme at the very end of the episode, which then pretty akwardly fades with the Stu Phillips before-the-end-credits short theme (very bad audio editing there). Actually it was very similar at the end of Hearts of Stone and then we h...

Re: SOUTHERN KNIGHTS ATLANTA Don Peake Exclusive Announcemen

Just wanted to follow up here to say that I received my shipment of all four of the new albums direct from Don himself. For anyone who hasn't seen the thread on Facebook, Don's been going through some difficult times and has had other important matters to attend to which have kept him from being as ...

Re: SOUTHERN KNIGHTS ATLANTA Don Peake Exclusive Announcemen

I was never able to get a response from Don, unfortunately. I went ahead and ordered a second copy of Volume 4 from Perseverance just to make sure I would get one; it should be here Friday according to USPS. If I eventually do hear from Don RE: the original $130 I sent him, and end up getting the co...

Re: SOUTHERN KNIGHTS ATLANTA Don Peake Exclusive Announcemen

KFCreator, that's good to hear. I also just last night looked up Don's Facebook page and sent him a message through there. When I originally sent him the funds back in August I included an extra $30 to cover the shipping cost since I didn't know what it would be. Seeing Volume 4 out on Persey tempts...

I see that Volume 4 is now listed and available for purchase on Perseverance Records' website. Despite sending payment for all four albums to Don and then following up with an email a wee...

Don Peake's Knight Rider Soundtrack Releases 2013

Hey all, In the past I've taken part in discussion on here regarding Don Peake's Knight Rider soundtrack albums released by Hitchcock Media Records (HMR), as I am a huge fan of Don's work on the show and Stu Phillips' original theme. A couple years ago there was talk of four new albums on their way,...

I haven't heard anything lately. Hitchcock Media's website used to say that they were coming "by mid-July", but about a week ago that changed to "this summer".

I still have mine, but in its present condition it would be worth nothing. The voice box works, but the car has been turbo-boosted a lot and it definite...

tharpdevenport, it seems that you are at least partially correct!

I sent in an email asking if there really was a fourth title that had been kept under wr...

I think they are going to be offered on CD, although admittedly I'm inferring that from Ron Hitchcock's words.

Thanks Joe, very cool scan!

I heard back from Ron Hitchcock at Hitchcock Media that they're trying to get the new recordings available for sale by the end of the month. Even if it slips into April, that's still right around the corner. Looking forward to it!

Ah, so there was no vol. 5 mentioned on the card either...sounds most likely to be a misprint. I once had a conversation with Ron Hitchcock where he told me a bit about the "baking" process. At first I thought that was simply a euphemism for some kind of mastering process...I was surprised...

Re: Was the OLD Knight Rider more High budget than the NEW?

I got the same "vibe" as Shadowy Flight and I think the reason why KR:TOS felt so "Hollywood" is because, as others have mentioned, it was actually shot on film using real cars, people and situations. Then again, so were most shows back then -- take Airwolf, for example. Can you ...

I'm not a fan of Buick, either. Given the choice, I'd take Pontiac over Buick. The problem is that reality is getting in the way: Buick is a huge, huge brand in China. In days past, the last Chinese emperor, Pu Yi, used to ride around in a Buick, and people never forgot that. Buick makes money in Ch...
