I've been waiting for this!!!! What an excellent album, George wrote most of the songs...and they come from his heart, from his experiences. His website has the stories of some of the lyrics, great reading. It's hard to pick a favorite, but for me....A Song for Harry Chapin, and The White Rose are probably my favorites of the songs that George wrote. Probably smile.gif He does a great cover of Beeswing, catchy song that sort of sticks in your head. And a very emotional cover of Grace. Request and listen, this man's voice is a treasure.

‘Songs that blew my mind away,’ is how George Donaldson describe Harry Chapin’s music on this long awaited debut album. I think those words are also appropriate for the songs on “The White Rose.” According to George, “The White Rose” was 20 years in the making and my opinion is that it was well worth the wait (however, the second one had better not take as long). The songs are full of passion and tell unique stories. Each note rings with genuine feeling, which many of today’s musicians lack. George’s beautiful vocals and amazing music cause the listeners to feel every single emotion that has been woven through the songs and masterfully combined into a work of art.

The White Rose is a terrific album. George's songs are riveting. Hierchy Blues and Halifax Town are two of my favorites.

The White Rose written and performed by George Donaldson is the most moving and inspirational CD I've heard. Georges story telling, voice, passion are beyond words. Every time I listen to it I appreciate it more and more. The words, stories, music and arrangements are absolutely beautiful.

This is an outstanding album, especially for a debut album. Every song on it means something. You can hear George's feelings in all his songs he writes. Love the way he puts words together and love the way he sings them. I predict many more wonderful albums to come from this very talented, humble Scotsman.

Simply love this album! Having seen and heard George sing with Celtic Thunder these past few years, it was such a treat to hear him singsome of his own songs...Each song stands along. Some are upbeat, some thought provking..but all are just perfect!

I truly love Georges voice and the way he writes songs. He is so talented. To hear him sing Grace makes me cry,actually almost every song on The White Rose makes me cry they are so beautiful.
