Just listen to this album once and you'll be stunned at how good it is. DUST is the 1971 debut for this visionary U.S. group. Visionary & stupendous you may ask? Drummer Mark Bell would soon change his name to Marky Ramone & help found the Ramones. Bassist Kenny Aaronson would later play with Neil & Jan in Schon, Hammer & Aaronson. He would also later guest on Blue Oyster Cult albums. And guitarist Richie Wise, along w/producer Kenny Kerner, would go on to produce the first two Kiss records. These guys had so much talent & ability that the world wasn't ready for them!
This album is major league boot stompin'! 'Loose Goose' is an instrumental showcasing Aaronson's truly gifted bass playing. 'Love Me Hard' cranks; Richie Wise displays a smooth vocal delivery on 'L.M.H.' which is great, especially when so many metal vocalists either just shriek or shout all the way through an album. Wise uses his voice as a sort of counter-instrument throughout the record, so Dust's 3 man lineup gains some extra depth. 'Chasin' Ladies' and 'Stone Woman' are whiskey-drenched rockers.
The magnificent ode to sex, 'From A Dry Camel', is a 7+ minute bombast displaying all 3 Dust-ians at the peak of their superlative skills. 'From A Dry Camel' made the list of Top Ten Heavy Metal songs EVER in the original ROCK BOOK OF LISTS, and you owe it to yourself to hear why.
If someone told you that Kiss, and the Ramones shared similar origins, and that those 2 groups shared strong musical ties with Neil Schon, and BOC, you just might think they were nuts, and that such an idea is preposterous. However, it's the truth, and that truth is Dust - 3 extraordinarily talented musicians who meld their skills together tightly & fabulously in playing high energy music. And this is just their first record - HARD ATTACK, their second, is even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early '70's hard rock December 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Most people have never heard of this group, let alone the music. This is probably one of my top 5 albums of all time. It's hard to compare their musical style to any other major bands, but I'd say it's great hard rock with raw production and great use of stereo (listen to this one with headphones).
Singer/guitarist Richie Wise went on to produce the 1st 2 Kiss albums, drummer Marc Bell went on to become Markie Ramone, and bassist Kenny Aaronson went on to various studio projects, including HSAS (the Sammy Hagar / Neal Schone group of the early '80's)
If you like good old fashioned hard rock, give this a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars »»» The legend of the obscure bands, part two »»» September 21, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In our "obscure bands" exploration, which started with England's bizarre and underrated rock band Stray, U.S. rock group Dust is an even more interesting case. It deserves serious investigation.
"Dust" is an awesome album, from an awesome group. It features some high energized tracks, such as 'From a dry camel' or the instrumental 'Loose goose'. Great bass playing by prof Aaronson, with quite fast drumming by Marc Bell (aka Marky Ramone): if you like stuff in the veins of Cactus or Blue Cheer you are at the good place!
Their second Lp, "hard attack", was one of the very first rock records I got when I was younger (not bad, when you're about 12 years-old, to have John Mayall's "A Hard Road", Edgar Winter, The Beatles "Hard Days Night", Grand Funk and Dust to start a collection!). Dust has always been one of my favorite bands, and the reissues on cd bring me back years behind, like a time machine... Although those musicians (which, at the time, hailed from Brooklyn, New York) were not in a 'sold-out-type-of-group' with Dust, they all achieved subsequent success and a briliant career. This was among their first experiments, and we all know experiments can bring it's part of surprise. With Dust, it has been a huge sonic "BOOM" !!! The radiations of their incredible music continues to fall, like a hard rain. †

5.0 out of 5 stars 70's rock still fits today August 24, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Three piece power rock that still stands up to todays best. At the time it was recorded, technology was just getting started as far as special effects were concerned. Dust used everything at their disposal to achieve a polished, hard hittng sound with very much energy and exciting directions.I first heard this album in 1972 and it is still one of my alltime favorites even today. the quality on this c.d. is wonderful and it makes me want to crank it up more than ever!

Another classic Prog Rock from the 1970's just as thrilling to rediscover in the 201x teens! Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars really neat early 70's hard rock
To me Dust (by the band Dust) is definitely more of a hard rock album than a blues rock one, even though there's a slight similarity to a band such as Ten Years After, and probably... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Obscure Heavy Seventies Classic!
Nice blues-rock from 1971. Neat-o blending of acoustic guitar, electric guitar and slide.
Also look for the 1972 follow-up, the only marginally mellower Hard Attack. Read more

So this is the great, under-rated, over-looked DUST? Anyone care to guess WHY they were so over-looked? Give you one hint: BORING! Read more
