"This is not a soundtrack to The Dukes of Hazzard, but rather an album with songs sung by cast members. Most of the actors can't sing, although John Schneider and Tom Wopat have decent voices. One of the most disappointing things about this CD is that the Dukes of Hazzard theme song is not performed by original artist Waylon Jennings, but is instead by the generic "Hazzard County Boys". Other than that, the rest of the album is pretty bad. "The General Lee" is one of the worst songs ever recorded by the great Johnny Cash, sung from the point of view of the Duke Boys' car. There is a terrible cover version of The Band's classic "Up On Cripple Creek", sung by Tom Wopat. The rest of the songs are all originals, and none of them are any good. This album will only appeal to hardcore Dukes of Hazzard fans."
A must have for Dukes fans

"This album is a great album. It features songs from many cast members, along with special guests Johnny Cash & Doug Kershaw, who are a couple of my favorite artists. The version of the theme song is sung by all cast members, which makes the album special. This album does show the people that all of the Dukes cast members do have musical talent, especially Tom Wopat, John Schneider (who both have had several top 40 hits on Billboard's country charts), and Catherine Bach. If you are a fan of country music or the Dukes of Hazzard, this is a must add to your collection. Put this album next to either "Waylon Jennings' Greatest Hits Vol. 2" or "The Essential Waylon Jennings" which have the original Waylon Jennings recording of the theme song and John Schneider's Greatest Hits which features many of his top 10 hits including all 4 of his #1 Billboard country chart hits. Since the time I wrote this review, Sony BMG/Legacy reissued this soundtrack album with Waylon's original version of the theme and the Waylon & Willie classic "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" as bonus tracks and you can find that version here on Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000A1IL0U/"
