Dusty and The LoveNotes / Press

“A female Neil Young, with a country, classic rock/folk feel. The band is incredibly strong and pro, laying the twang on pretty thick, and bouncing bass lines on home in perfect time. The singing isn't "American Idol" in fashion, it is a more folky, storytelling kind of approach, akin to the before mentioned Neil Young, but definitely with a dose of female country.”

“ dusty recor is more than the world's biggest country singer. her album "better world" is a one-woman song factory with a rock and roll heart. john shelton ivany jsitop21.com</HTML>”

“. singer/songwriter/flutist Dusty Recor and guitar/harp veteran Indian Joe. .. are back with Better World, writing and arranging 10 original country folk-rock tunes, that include the contributions of Floyd Fronius on violin and drummer-about-town Brian (Nucci) Cantrell... Joe still carves plenty of licks, but there is a much more eclectic mix of moods, textures, and overall vibe, helped by the addition of Fronius, Recor’s flute work, and plenty of acoustic guitar. It all comes together on the opener and title song. Recor’s simple tune about improving the world through cooperation is sung/spoken over smooth lead guitar fills and pleasing violin accents. “Lead a Horse” takes the promise shown in the opener to another level; it is a catchy country-gal rocker that glides as Joe’s slide duels with Fronius’ fiddle, and Recor is perfectly in the pocket telling her lying lover, “You got by on good looks/ Those good looks got up and left.” It is a standout track, and more are”

““What Did You Expect” is a “Treasure Trove” of knowledge, wisdom and experience. I can’t begin to list everything I found in the lyrics..! Indian Joe played lead guitar, bass,& some rhythm tracks,did back up vocals & helped with the production & arrangement...a very, very talented guitar player.. I found all the tracks easy to listen to, with some good “hooks” to keep the music bouncing around your head, it shows several different styles of music so you don’t get bored half way through the CD.. its somewhat humorous,& laced with common sense.. Dusty’s voice comes through clear as a bell & is perfect for this style of music...So, I rate “What Did You Expect?” by Dusty and the LoveNotes, 10 stars and a “thumbs up”! I hope you and Indian Joe have 10 or 11 more songs kicking around somewhere, Ms. Dust! ”

“Recor, who produced and arranged the album with collaborator/LoveNotes member Indian Joe, is clearly a skillful songwriter as well as a skillful vocalist. Recor wrote everything on this 2010 release, which has plenty of contemplative, deep-thinking material (including "It's Over," "Geordie's Song," and the abovementioned "Antigua") but has its humorous moments as well (most notably, "S.P.C.A" and "Blue Satin Thong," which is about leaving an item of sexy clothing in an ex-lover's drawer in order to remind him of what he is now missing). ... this is a memorable, promising effort that fans of roots rock, Americana, and country-rock should be aware of.”

“This CD is a fine start and leaves us wanting more. It’s filled with promise and is clearly only a beginning in her musical travels. ”
