Corb Lund Counterfeit Blues on 180g LP + Download Card

A spirited set of rockabilly, rock n’ roll and honky tonk country, Corb Lund’s New West Records release, Counterfeit Blues, was recorded live, off the floor, at Sun Studio in Memphis in much the same way Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash did 60 years before in that same room. Lund and his band the Hurtin’ Albertans recorded the rousing collection over a breakneck two nights resulting in an album that as Lund puts it is “raw, organic and dirty.” 

“It turned out really well,” Lund exclaims. “Partly because we know the songs inside out and have played them live a thousand times and partly because recording at Sun is a very old fashioned, low-tech process that ends up sounding really great if you can pull it off. My band has been playing behind me for ten years or more, with all the same members so it was a great way to capture the live chemistry we’ve developed over many, many tours. You can’t fake that.”

Armed with just a couple guitars, some mics, a pedal steel guitar, stand-up bass, drums and the amps they plugged into, the foursome eschewed studio trickery for the lightning in a bottle approach and blasted through 12 songs with a confidence and swagger that can only come from years of playing together. The end result serves as both an exciting introduction for the uninitiated and as a fun must-have for the fans. 

A Juno Award winner (Canadian Grammys) who has multiple Canadian Gold Records to his name, Lund has played on bills, at festivals, and special events with The Who, Emmylou Harris and Robert Plant, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, James Taylor, and Joni Mitchell. He has also won the Canadian Country Music Awards Roots Artist of the Year eight times running. 2012's Cabin Fever made the Polaris Prize longlist and received rave reviews across the board.
