Guide Review - 'The Dukes of Hazzard' - Various Artists
Waylon Jennings sang the theme song of the show, "Good Ol' Boys." Every week he lamented about how they showed his hands on tv but not his face. Johnny Cash's distinctive voice can be heard singing "The General Lee." And Doug Kershaw lends a Cajun beat to "Ballad of General Lee." Catherine Bach, Daisy Duke, sings "Down Home American Girl." John Schneider sings "Them Good Old Boys are Bad" and really adds to the country flavor of the CD. Waylon & Willie sing "Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys" and Waylon's theme song closes the CD.
In general, this was a great CD. I think fans of the show would probably appreciate it the most, but everyone would enjoy the good music. They did leave a lot of the chatter from the actors throughout the CD, so if you didn't watch the show you would have no idea what they were talking about for the most part. But the bottom line is that the music is really good and puts a smile on your face.
