Product Description

Rock and Roll hall of Famer Robbie Robertson's "Shine Your Light" is the first song he's ever written and recorded specifically for a film. For this new movie LADDER 49, about a group of Baltimore firefighters, Robertson penned "Shine Your Light," a stunning track that recalls the enduring material of Music From Big Pink and The Band, both landmark albums from the songwriter's former group. Part anthem and part gospel hymn, "Shine Your Light" plays in its entirety over the film's dramatic culminating scene; it's the only sound that's heard. In addition to Robertson's track the Soundtrack is filled with songs from the greats like Bonnie Raitt, Tom Petty, The Black Crowes and even newer artists such as David Grey. The feel good oundtrack of the Fall!

HASH(0xa4acf294) out of 5 stars My Salvation Feb. 16 2005
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Ladder 49" is an excellent song collection that is able to be enjoyed both in reflecting on the film & as its own stand-alone collection. The Band's Robbie Robertson opens up with the lovely anthem "Shine Your Light" that marries an inspirational lyric to a midtempo pop melody, "Don't want to be a hero, just an everyday man, trying to the job the very best he can, but now it's like living up for all time out on the rim over the line." From David Gray's "Lost Songs" CD, "As I'm Leaving" is a wistful pop melody with Gray's unique delivery. Another track that I find delightful is the little-know Alexi Murdoch's "Orange Sky" that of course thematically fits a fire-filled skyline. Coming to the U.S. from Scotland, Murdoch has only put out one EP with 4 songs, one of which is included here. Murdoch's track builds emotionally and powerfully, "In your love, my salvation lies." From Sam Phillips' 2001 CD "Fan Dance" the producers have placed "How to Dream," a midtempo track with Phillips' expressive growl. Bonnie Raitt contributes "Love Sneakin' Up On You" from her 1994 CD "Longing In Their Hearts." It's another journeywoman performance from this master musician. The instrumental interlude by Robbie Robertson, "Reflection-Adagio" is truly an orchestral gem with its lovely melody, stately build & powerful wallop. Breeders, Pogues & Black Crowes all rock joyfully. This is an excellent collection that stands alone as a quality musical experience. Enjoy!

HASH(0xaad95378) out of 5 stars Tear jerker Sept. 5 2005
By Nadja Williamson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bawled my eyes out when I watched the movie "Ladder 49". Then when I listened to the soundtrack, my eyes watered with the memory of the movie.

This is a great soundtrack. The theme song, "Shine Your Light" is such a moving song. It's one of those songs you can't get tired of. It's uplifting, as well as providing a rememberance for the simple things in life. Life itself.

HASH(0xa540bc9c) out of 5 stars This is an excellent CD for an awesome movie... Oct. 20 2004
By Lance Berryman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a volunteer firefighter, seeing this movie kind of struck a spark in relating to those guys in the movie. My younger brother is a firefighter as well we were both speechless at end but agreed that it was an awesome movie and a fitting tribute. The music on the CD fits very well with the events of the movie and all bring back some image from the movie; especially "Shine your light" and the fitting tribute for the Firefighter funeral. The "Call to Courage" track is one of my favorites as well. This is a must have! Now when is the DVD coming out?!

HASH(0xa4acf630) out of 5 stars Wonderful Movie, Soundtrack Awesome June 5 2005
By W. L. Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This soundtrack is wonderful. It contains a wide variety of music, yet they all fit together. The main song by Robbie Robertson is amazing.

See this movie, and then buy the soundtrack. You won't regret it.

HASH(0xa4acf7bc) out of 5 stars Not the original soundtrack from the movie Jan. 31 2009
By movie lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
We own this movie on DVD and notice many of the songs from the original movie soundtrack written by William Ross are not present. Actually the only portion of his original score is the last 7 minutes with a medley of 3 of the soundtracks scores. I wrote to the composer to tell him how disappointed I was and he said that wasn't his call but the company who distributed the movie and the studio. They decide how the soundtrack is mixed to sell to the public and decide what to put on it. Some movie soundtracks have songs that weren't even in a film. It's all about marketing and not really a movie soundtrack as it used to be several years ago. I have a copy of the actual soundtrack on CD with all of Mr. Ross's music. And I can assure you I enjoy it more than listening to this one.
