The 321st Soundtrack of the Week is this CD of Stu Phillips's music for the television show Knight Rider.
The theme is well known, as well it should be. There are numerous reprises of it and many cues that make use of its pulsating rhythm.
Sometime in the last year I heard a guitarist in a Boston subway station playing it, solo, using a looping device. Whoever you were, you did a great job!
Listening to this music was very nostalgic for me. I used to watch this show during its original run. Phillips's music is great, often creating miniature dramas themselves and covering a lot of different emotional territory while maintaining a stable identity.
