The answer to this depends upon the state you are in when the recording is being made.  Laws with respect to recording conversations vary from state to state.  In Arizona, generally, it is legal for one party to record a conversation without the other parties knowledge or consent.  To be sure, you need to verify the law in the state you are in when you plan to make the recording.
