The music is mix of classic rock and indie folk type songs. Mitchell, 16, contributed two of the originals and Van, lots older, contributed two as well. Everything is upbeat and fun ... this CD is 30 minutes of sheer acoustic musical deliciousness!
The first song, One The Ground, is a Mitchell Solkov original. This surprisingly complex love song has a wonderful melody and great progression. The lyrics, as always, belie Mitchell's age and have a voice of a wise and thoughtful soul.
Track two is the first cover, Tom Petty's Free Fallin'... as with every song on the CD, Mitchell's lead guitar work is melodic and mature and the acoustic presentation of this classic gives it a delightful twist.
The Third tune is a Van Solkov song ... Forever Yours is dedicated to the amazing love which fills the hearts of Van and Nancy Solkov; if you enjoy bilingual songs speaking to the spirit of true love, then, you'll truly love Forever Yours.
The House of the Rising Sun in the fourth track on the CD. As the song moves into the guitar solo, you'll find yourself transported from the Big Easy to the sprawling desert of Mexico and then back again ... Mitchell's solo absolutely ROCKS on this track, it's down-right whip crackin'!
Mitchell Solkov's second original is the fifth tune. Titled "Alone", this straight-forward blues tune is a gem. From the gritty delivery of the lyric to the solo interlude, this tune has it all. Please enjoy!
The last track, All I Know, is a long-time favorite penned by Van Solkov. This upbeat and driving rocker always gets people up and dancing at shows, so, here's a chance to have some fun whenever you want with this van-tastic song!
Solis - The First Time Around is just that: the first time Mitchell and Van Solkov have collaborated on a CD together. There's more coming, but, add Solis - The First Time Around to your play list now!
