Guilty Pleasure Time

I was thinking of O'Malley this morning, and I haven't yet been able to see him and his band in person.

So I just ordered two O'Malley's March compact discs: "Celtic Fury" and "Wait for Me."

Too bad he was short on name recognition and money. He really belongs in the White House.

2. About O'Malley's March

You can find out more about O'Malley's March on Google; but his compact discs are available at Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=O%27Malley%27s+March&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3AO%27Malley%27s+March

Since he withdrew from the Democratic presidential primary, he has made appearances with his band (all sold out). Apart from having been a great mayor of Baltimore and an outstanding governor of Maryland, he is the leader of his own Celtic or Irish band. He plays a mean guitar and banjo, and he sings rather well. Lots of fun.

Here's a bit more:

It is wonderful. O'Malley's voice and guitar are clear and very pleasing. The mix of the recording is perfect. Forget about the YouTube recordings. This is the real deal, and it sounds wonderful. Worth every penny.

I will give a full review when I have more time. Another reason to admire and love this guy. And there are so many reasons.
