Soundtrack

The Dukes of Hazzard Soundtrack is an original album from The Dukes of Hazzard series.

Album History[]

The album was originally released by the Scotti Brothers in 1982 before being released in 2005 after the remake movie. Due to the fact the album was originally on cassette the first six songs were on side one with the last five on side two.

The album had eleven released songs with three additional bonus tracks included in the re-release. The album is categorized as County, Country Rock, and Outlaw Country. The album plays like a mini episode, the songs linking together with a short commentary to tell a story of everyone getting ready for a major race, Boss and Rosco trying to stop the Dukes from participating and the Dukes winning the race before catching a country singer and their band with a speed ticket and forcing them to perform at the Boar's Nest.
