Fried Green Tomatoes At the Whistle Stop Cafe: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

The score by Thomas Newman to this film is almost superior to the film itself. It truly captures the sweet melancholy of the Fall. Try listening to it with headphones and you'll hear a highly dimensional sound, delicate and subtle. Reflective and spiritual. The tracks " Visiting Ruth" and "Ghost Train" really make you think about the meaning of the film and what it says.

The real gem here is Grayson Hugh's cover and re-arrangement of Bob Dylan's, "I'll Remember You". Truly one of pop music's great voices. So soulful, so bluesy and rich in harmony.Every song on this soundtrack has so much character, especially the instrumentals by Thomas Newman!
