What the DJ's and writers are saying

Forrest -- what a GREAT release Turnaround Blues is absolutely great! Wowza!!

Thank you! I'm a fan! - Bluesletter Kim KVRM 91 9 Eugene, OE

Forrest This is blues, top-notch and worthy of a spot among the greats. I recommend it highly to one and all with no exceptions.

Bill Wilson – Reflections in Blue

This posse is so skilled that even their covers sound new. The Forrest McDonald Band will turn one’s blues around with “Turnaround Blues”! Highly Recommended.

Reviewer Rainey Wetnight - Blues Blast Magazine

Forrest has a bluesman’s soul, he’s a helluva guitar player and he pulls no punches. Everything he plays is “Certified Blue” all the way through. With Turnaround Blues, he and the band have cooked up another sure-fire winner!

Don and Sheryl’s Blues blog

This is the way real blues albums used to be. It’s highly recommended.

Norman Darwen – Blues in the Northwest

Turnaround Blues is one of those CD’s that you are just lucky to come across. Get a copy. You’ll see! This is the real deal. This is a great band! I love it! It's a 12-cylinder blues band.

Blue Barry - Smoky Mountain blues society

Turnaround Blues is really a superb album with plenty of down home blues and excellent musicianship!

Jean Claude - Musiczine

"Certified Blue" received great reviews from Living Blues (40th Anniversary Issue) and Blues Revue's 20th Anniversary Issue. Certified Blue - a warm, R&B soaked slice of Texas Blues with a classic Chicago club vibe.
