I am going to go grab the reviews from our brothers and sisters who posted on the ABB site forum before we had this wonderful new home!
Anyone else who wants to tell us what you think, please do so! We love to know what your thoughts are!

Dusty can play the hell out of the slide. Very authentic. Has that 'Mississippi Mud' tone happening. His playing takes ya way back in the alley. He is deserving of our respect and patronage. If you like the old blues, you will dig Dusty.

After listening to this cd (Blues Take Me Home) for a couple of days, I find it to be a very enjoyable record. A link to the old blues of Charlie Patton and Tommy Johnson. Dusty claims to be an uneducated musician, which is half right. He is a musician. A blues musician. It is obvious he has dedicated many years to learning these old blues forms and in the process, he became a blues master. The tunes on the cd are the ones almost any person who has sat on the porch and picked the blues with his pals play. This is a good primer for anyone interested in hearing them played right. You will not hear any sampled phrases, or synthesizers, no turntables scratching, no fancy production at all, just a few guys, playing the blues, and playing them right. Blues Take Me Home feels good. If acoustic blues interests you at all, this is a winner. Dusty plays some mean slide through out, and is joined by some wonderful players. I am glad there are people like Dusty who continue to play this style of music. For some reason I find it important.

Hey Dusty, and Pam, got the CD yesterday, I really enjoy it! To use a term often used in chopper building, it's "Old School". Man I could've sat in my rocker on the front porch all night long listenin' to it, with my dog at my feet and the mason jar in my hand! It's the real deal! Lookin forward to seein' Y'all at the VIBES! Tim

Playing it as we speak (or type, or something).

Sounds pretty good.

I'll let you know what I think after a few listens.

Thanks Pam!



The best place for me to listen to music is in my car on my way to work - which is a 45-50 minute drive. Finally got to play Dusty's cd again today. It was a very enjoyable ride. The country blues mixed with some bluegrass really had my toes tapping - which is not always a good idea on Chicago expressways . I really like this cd - for some reason I really liked Crow Jane. There is a lot of good music on this cd - it was definitely a good buy, and I will be playing it more on the way into work. It's always good to start the day out smiling - and this music had me in a good mood when I got to work.

Thanks Dusty, and Thanks Pam!

Been meaning to chime in here for a while now, had my cd a couple o weeks now and I love the sripped down simplicity of it all...nothing but some damn fine playing. Listening to the songs my feet just start moving on their own...put that cd in and just let her run, sit on my deck and watch the sun go down...seems to be a forgotten art these days (for me anyway). And the topper to me is hearing those (t'ick) New England accents again...thank you Dusty and Pam...now if I could just learn to play 1/100 th of what I hear...
