David Solway’s Musical Debut: Blood Guitar and Other Tales

And yet, even though a couple of central motifs run through them, walking through these songs is like passing through a museum of very varied displays. Like straightforward love songs with sweet country-style melodies? There’s “I Live to Love You.” Looking for a black-comedic tour de force about man’s perplexities in dealing with woman? There’s “The Witch.”

And there’s the title song “Blood Guitar,” superficially happy-go-lucky even though “when you look beneath the hood, you see it’s not all good”: that is, that there’s something scary at the heart of life. And there’s “Rose of Time,” yet another take on the time theme, this one expressing the wistful wish that one’s lover had always been one’s own exclusively—and finally hinting that maybe, on a spiritual plane, that really is the case.
