ALBUM REVIEW: Corb Lund ~ Counterfeit Blues

ptw scorebw7.5corb_lund_counterfeit_blue copyThe story behind Corb Lund’s eight album involves a trip with his band the Hurtin’ Albertans down from Canada to Memphis’ legendary Sun Studio for a completely live recording session over two nights. That approach has certainly reaped rewards with the album sounding raw and alive. There is a real sense of the players bouncing off one another and riding the vibe and tempo changes in real time. Lund has taken a strong honky tonk brush to his songs with a strong rock n roll and rockabilly undercurrent and it suits their sound perfectly, regardless of the setting. Counterfeit Blues is blast of fresh air in an ageing art form.
