"...Breathes new life into old songs with fresh arrangements and a flair for the exotic."
―Jay Trachtenburg, Austin Chronicle

"….What might well be the most honest, haunting and intense version of ‘Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?’ committed to CD........Put simply, pianist/vocalist Bett Butler and bassist Joel Dilley make great records.”
―Jim Beal, San Antonio Express-News

"What Bett Butler did in "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?"―included in her glorious American Sampler―should make Bing Crosby's jaw drop. Never has the song been recorded with such tension and edge."
—Enrique Lopetegui, The Current
