McDonald's "Spirit", though released in '99, carries a feel of traditional quality. The opening song "That's My Baby" churns with a boogie woogie piano opening, and the voice of Raymond Victor, that is soul shaking. This entire disc weaves in varying directions of Blues, in a nearly "How-to" fashion. World Talent Records is a fresh independent label, and this self produced effort rings of simple meat and potatoes recording methods mixed with current technology, making a fine palette for the wide array of Blues styles covered here.

The disc sleeve doesn't mention who wrote the songs, but it does mention the names of the talented musicians performing on the recording. They are Forrest McDonald on guitar and vocals, Raymond Victor-lead vocals and keyboards, Diane Dutra-bass, "Cap" Capdeville-drums and Dave Parnell-saxophone and vocals. McDonald executes clean licks with great feel and emphasis on tone. Combined with the Raymond Victor Band makes on wonder when they might be playing nearby. An interesting piece of trivia this reviewer discovered, Forrest McDonald performed the solo on Bob Seger's classic hit "Old Time Rock'n'Roll!"
