Try these:

http://buysoundtrax.stores.yahoo.net/knigridvolon.html

http://www.hitchcock-media.com/Artists/ ... rider.html

Bought it from hitchcock media myself. Don't anything about that other site selling it. And yes, It is an amazing piece of KR soundtrack.

BTW, any news about the vol. 2 release?

Aye, it's been ages since the first volume. The problems I had with that first volume though, was that each track was at least 10 minutes long, and the tracks weren't properly seperated, unlike Stu Phillips' OST, which was spot-on. Also, you can faintly hear the original dialouge and sound-effects in some places of the Don Peake Volume 1 tracks, which is VERY odd, as both he and Ron claim that they've used the original masters, but in-fact, it just sounds like they've taken the original DVD's, ripped the audio track from them, and heavily mastered them, but of course, the DVD's hadn't been released before Don's Volume 1 had been produced.

What's more, for the amount of money that you are paying for Volume 1, the front and rear artwork covers have been very cheaply printed using a standard home inkjet printer, and not a proper professional, sharper and expensive printing machine, again, unlike Stu Phillips' OST, which was done to perfection.

Just got a reply from http://www.hitchcock-media.com

Thanks for your inquiry.
Volume 2 is in the works but not out this year.
Volume 1 may be signed by composer Don Peake at no extra cost, he's happy to accommodate. He lives close by and when asked, stops by within a couple of days to sign requests.

Best regards,

All good points. But Don's vol 1 is WAY better than Stu's OST in my book. Mainly because I never really liked Stu's compositions that much. For me Don's music is the real KR music. And it really doesn't matter if the cd and sleeve/back are cheaply done. All that counts is the groove!

While cue-for-cue I take my Peake CD over Stu's (both excellent CDs nonetheless), what he said above is true. You can hear it.

Some cues have different sound qaulity, some have the show edits in the music.

I can only hope Volume 2 -- which I'll purchase in ah eart beat even if the same -- is better. Otherwise I can't see justifying the current price.

Now Stu;s is a different because of who released it. FilmScoreMonthly has access to top notch professional and software to make things sound like new. Even from inferior sources.


Just the other day I was talking to someone who got a CD of unreleased scores from the show, by Peake, but said his car got robbed. :-(

Even with a bootleg, the High-Tech bootleg, and the Hitchcock MEdia CDs, fans of the show's scores -- like myself -- still find themselves wanting more. Hopefully HM will still do that second volume.
And when things appeared to get better, they got worse, and everyday was a day to cry.

While Googling to find out what was happening with a Volume 2, I found this old notice I had forgotten about.

It's not almost 2009; wonder if plans are totally scrapped for a second CD. Would be very disappointing if so.

I can tell you that Don is working on The Goliath episode CD which will be ready for release at Knight Rider Festival
God willing!
However he ask me to remind him about Knight Fest when we are about a month from the show, because it is his intention to have it for everyone soon.
He has been extremely busy scoring music for various movie trailers as well as various artists who come to his studio which is a very cool place by the way.
So to sum up Don really wants to have the CD out as soon as possible but he wants it to be top notch, so only time will tell whether it wil be out by March, so I will keep you posted.
One thing is for sure & that is it will be out in 2009 & will be fantastic.

What a great news! Can't wait for the new CD!

Do you know if Don's preparing the music from Goliath episode only, or can we expect some other episodes as well?

Blackcat;

I can tell you that it will be mostly Goliath, however there will be other material from season two
also.
Don is very happy to be producing this CD & if you have his last Knight Rider CD you know
he does a fantastic job.
All the best,

Dave Doggett. :kittspi

I heard back a reply from Hitchcock Records. Appearently at the time they wanted to do Volume 2, it was possible, but the the studio was bought by another and things got tied up and waht not. They say it's looking good now and they hope to announce something in the near future.


I just hope the mastering job is better that Volume 1. That was pretty bad, considering the qaulity of Stu Philips' CD from Film Score Monthly.



I've seen a couple episodes from Volume 1 on TV recently. Found out the scores were not complete, but they did offer scoring not in the episodes.

Hitchcock Media Records started listing a week or so back that the Volume 2 "Knight Rider" CD is coming soon. I can't wait. I hope it's a better remastering than the last, though.

It says 'available exclusively on Knight Rider Con'. Does this mean us non-US fans will never get to hear it? :(

That's the problem; I don't buy digital albums, only CDs (I'm collector type). I do have the two previous albums (Don Peake vol 1 and Stu Phillips scores).

As I understand, the one being sold at the Con, will be the same one as the next HMR CD, just at a later date than the Con.


If not, I know I would be sorely disappointed; not all of us can afford to travel.

Got this e-mail from Hitchcock Media Records today:



Knight Rider: Best of Don Peake v.1, v.2, v.3 are available exclusively for the Knight Rider Festival taking place this weekend in Las Vegas. When we return, we are able to ship March 25th.


Best regards,

Not only is the Volume 2 about to be released, but they sneaked in a Volume 3 without any news about it. Nice.

Appearently Volume 3 is the same contents as the Hi-Tech Records bootleg from a number of years back. One can only hope it's at least mastered a little. But in the end it will give people who don't want to buy bootleg,s a hcance to buy a legitimate version of these scores, so ... nifty.

I must've missed something at some point but how is the Hi-Tech Records soundtrack that was released back in 2000 a bootleg? I bought that CD as soon as it came out and the only thing I remember about what happened after it was released was that the company said they were working on a Vol. 2 CD but then promptly shut down and were never heard from again. Those tracks that were released on that CD in 2000 sound damn near perfect by my ears and I can't see how it was bootlegged. Is it worth paying the $24 for Don's new "rerelease" Volume 3 CD if it just contains the same tracks on the Hi-Tech Records CD? I hope someone can clarify this.

Thanks for the link. I just ordered all three volumes from Hitchcock Music, which I reached from Don Peake's site. I can't wait to get them.

I wish Stu Phillips would do a re-release of his, too. I'd love to get my hands on an actual CD of it. I have it through Napster, but they only allow it to be downloaded, not purchased.
