Shine a Light is the soundtrack to The Rolling Stones concert film of the same name, directed by Martin Scorsese. It was released on 1 April 2008 in the UK by Polydor Records and one week later in the US by Interscope Records. Two different versions were released, one a double disc and the other a single disc.
Shine a Light is the ninth concert album to be released by the Rolling Stones. This collection, like the two 2006 shows it was culled from, features no performances of songs from their 2005 album A Bigger Bang. The two-disc version features all but two of the songs played on the two nights; the missing numbers are "Undercover of the Night" (included as a bonus track on the Japanese edition and as a download on iTunes Store) and "Honky Tonk Women".
Shine a Light features several guest performers: Jack White, of The White Stripes, performs on "Loving Cup"; Christina Aguilera appears on "Live with Me"; and bluesman Buddy Guy performs on Muddy Waters' "Champagne and Reefer".
The album was very well received, especially in the UK, where it debuted at No. 2, selling 23,013 copies in its first week – the best chart position for a Rolling Stones concert album since 'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!' in 1970. In the US, it debuted at #11 on the Billboard charts with 37,117 copies sold—the band's highest US debut for a concert album since 1995's Stripped.
