“In 1989 Caliber Comics published the first issue of The Crow comic book by James O’Barr. Shortly after that James and I met. This was about the same time Caliber was publishing my comic book series, Ashes. James and I were instant fans of each other’s work. The first time I read The Crow, I wanted to make a soundtrack for the book. The music was right there, so apparent to me. The dialog, the scraps of poetry between chapters, even the chapter titles themselves read like great song lyrics. I mentioned the idea of a comic book soundtrack to James, and around 1990 we began working on it.
I composed most of the music to accompany specific scenes from the comic. When it was time to write lyrics, James and I simply turned to the book and read through the scene I’d just scored. In most cases, all the text on those pages fell right into place as song lyrics.
Long before the first Crow film was made and long before the special reissues of the Crow comic books were published, James O’Barr and I envisioned this soundtrack. The true sound of The Crow. A soundtrack for a black-and-white indy comic book no one had heard of, published from the back-office of a comic book store in Detroit, Michigan.
It’s been quite a trip down memory lane putting this special edition together. I know Crow fans enjoy it.
