Frank Zappa famously commented: “It isn’t necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.” On this, the 75th anniversary of the birth of Clark Kent / Superman, MoS film-makers – which includes Hollywood auteur Zack Snyder and writers David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan – have soared past the potential of “Death by Nostalgia” by delivering into today’s world the most super of all comic book heroes – portrayed by island of Jersey-born Henry Cavill. Helming the film’s music is maestro Hans Zimmer.

Allison Crowe appears in the film very much as she does in concert – a troubadour of fiery spirit and true passion. Her cameo, performing the iconic Johnny Cash tune, “Ring of Fire”, is result of a day of filming at the Cassidy Inn – an historic miners-to-bikers bar located on Vancouver Island, just about ten minutes drive south of where Crowe’s born.

A relationship begun in 2008, between the bi-coastal artist, who is at home in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, and her birthplace, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and the dynamic movie duo of Director Zack Snyder and Producer Debbie Snyder, is cherished by the independent Canuck.

Celebrating the experience of “Man of Steel”, released this month by Warner Bros. studio and its partners, Allison Crowe’s own label, Rubenesque Records Ltd., has compiled “Songbook” – an oeuvre-spanning, 22 track, collection representing each album+ release from Crowe’s dozen+ years of recording as one of the great singer-songwriters, interpreters and live performers in popular music.
