“The album is finely balanced with a brace of introspective numbers and some rootsy ramblings. Long Ride Home is a cosmic cowboy lament, an intricate lace of slide and electric guitar with mandolin and accordion it’s a valedictory to life on the road and beautifully delivered. What Do You Recall is a stripped down piece, piano and fiddle and voice only as Starr peers into a memory of a love, a song that is painfully wonderful, like a love song to a dementia sufferer if that’s not supposing too much. Memory also features on the slinky and slick night-time blues of Afraid as Starr revisits his past while The Beautiful Music Of You (featuring Furay on harmonies again) is a simple love song with a hint of sadness provided by mournful viola. Love and Sabotage is an excellent album and the good news is that Starr is currently touring the UK although he’s performing solo. However, on the strength of this he seems well worth seeing”

 

““ David Starr convinces with ‘Love And Sabotage’ again with his vocals and melodies, and must certainly get the attention that he (absolutely) more deserves. Discover this captivating singer-songwriter!... “ Eric Schuurmans www.rootstime.be

 

"From the opening full on guitar riff of 'Love and Sabotage' to the haunting harmonies of ' The Beautiful Music Of You' this is an album to treasure. David Starr has produced a record of exceedingly good quality . His mellow and warm vocals draw you in to each song leaving you wanting more. Now of course you're immediately drawn to the fact that luminaries such as John Oates, Steve Cropper and Richie Furay guest on the album, but as good as these collaborations are , (and they are very good indeed), it's David's talent that shines through. So if you like Americana, Country Rock or good honest Country Music you're going to love this album. This cd is going to be on my playlist for quite some time!" David Tonberg, UK's most northerly Mainland radio presenter.

 

“David is a fine songwriter, influenced by Southern California singer songwriters and Delta bluesmen, by Levon Helm and Jackson Browne. It shows through in his writing and in his voice. He’s recorded five CDs, four solo and one with the David Starr Band, the latest one called Love and Sabotage. Like a lot of artists, it’s hard to say why he’s not better known, though it’s obvious he’s got an Arkansas audience.”
