Info for Counterfeit Blues
The spirited set of rockabilly, rock n’ roll and honky tonk country was recorded live, off the floor, at Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee in much the same way Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash did 60 years before in that same room.
For the rousing collection, Lund and his band the Hurtin’ Albertans chose fan favourites from some of their early albums – 2002′s breakthrough Five Dollar Bill, their first gold record in Canada, and 2006′s Canadian Country Music Association’s Album of the Year, Hair In My Eyes Like A Highland Steer – and re-cut them in a breakneck two-day recording process resulting in an album that, as Lund says, is “raw, organic and dirty.”
“It turned out really well. 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.” (Corb Lund)
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 to the acclaimed band’s early material and as fun must-have reinterpretation of the classics for the fans.

Recorded at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, TN
and his band just played the Stagecoach Music Festival in Southern California and are currently wrapping up their Spring Thaw tour of the Western U.S. and Canada. The fourth-generation rancher and former frontman of the punk/metal band The Smalls has been a road warrior since releasing his most recent album Cabin Fever in 2012, which shot to #1 in Canada and earned him significant new fans in the U.S and abroad. Over the last couple years he has played upwards of 200 shows throughout North America, including opening an arena date for self-professed fans Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley, a tour with friend Hayes Carll, who co-wrote and duets on the hilarious stand out “Bible on the Dash,” a showcase at SXSW and tours in Australia, New Zealand and all across Europe.
A Juno Award winner who has multiple Canadian Gold Records to his name, he has played 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. Cabin Fever made the Polaris Prize longlist and has received raves from the likes of NPR, Uncut (9 out of 10) the New York Times and the Washington Post, who said,”Lund is a revelation, laconic and scary smart, with a devil’s eye for details.”
