What is the law regarding 2-party consent states for recording phone calls?

If a state requires 2 party consent to record a telephone conversation (as does the state where the call is originating from), if one of the party’s announce “This Call Maybe Monitored or Recorded” does this also allow you to record? Do you also have to announce this to them. I was told by them it only gives permission for only them to record. No one else is allowed to. Seems a little one sided since they require you to allow the recording. They recently backed out of something they said they would do and then decided since I can’t prove it was said there is nothing they can do. I told them to pull the recording and they said it’s not available.
