This CD is AMAZING!!!
"Take a waltz with wind as she kicks up the leaves." I love how George puts words together like a work of art.
There's powerful stories here, some tragic and true, others sweet and heartfelt. Songs very different, but tied together by a theme of a great vision of humanity and from the first word and song to the last a message of "Hope". Each song is my favorite as I'm listening to it and when the song ends I want to listen again. The stories, the music, the arrangements are outstanding, with George's voice sweet and tender to intense and powerful, guiding us through this incredible journey that is
"The World in My Mind".

Another Amazing Offering
This talented Scot has done it again. He has put together another beautiful CD you will listen to over and over again without getting tired of any of the songs. His music entertains, informs, calms, and educates you. He gives you history and personal glimpses into his heart and his mind with his beautiful baritone voice you can't help but love listening to. This album is up to the standard of his first release, The White Rose and you will enjoy it just as much.

More songs and stories!
As I listen to The World in My Mind, I am swept up in many different emotions. From the beauty of love in Belle of Liberty to the despair of Commune, George takes you on a journey through so many feelings. The tunes are wonderful, and the lyrics of his original songs are just amazing. George is a songwriter and singer who needs to be heard! I loved The White Rose, and The World in My Mind is equally good, but unique as well. Well done, George!

This Album is A Treasure Trove
In these songs, George carries us through heart-rending history of the land (and sea) of his ancestors to a more personal history, illuminating his love of family and his drive for self-expression. The album feels intensely personal & sheds light on the dreams, loves, & compassion of the man. I felt I was hearing the traditional song "The Parting Glass" for the first time, & it moved me to tears (even as I think about it now, as I write). The vocal and instrumental support is exquisite & I cannot imagine the hauntingly beautiful "Galway Shawl" without the equally hauntingly beautiful piano accompaniment.
Yes, this album is a treasure & you will want to return often to admire the jewels it contains.

The World in my Mind
Another terrific album from the Great Scot!. Using his talents as a folk singer, musician and storyteller, George weaves his magic with 11 new songs, letting his words tell the stories, as his wonderful music carries the words. With backup from the great Plunkett McGartland on violin, this is another hit~ making its debut on cdbaby today!
Great job, George!
