Editors’ Notes

Corb Lund spent the two decades before Counterfeit Blues becoming a country star in his native Canada while remaining a cult figure in the U.S. But for Counterfeit Blues, Lund traveled to Memphis to record at one of rock 'n' roll's legendary birthplaces, Sun Studio. In keeping with the atmosphere, he cut the entire album live in the studio, achieving an organic, appealingly gritty feel. Lund filled the record with tunes from his early Canada-only releases, which will be new to most U.S. listeners. The raw, Dylan-esque title track has a rock edge, and "Big Butch Bull Bass Fiddle," a tongue-in-cheek ode to the stand-up bass, bears a rockabilly feel, but most of the tunes are pure country. Tapping into Lund's cowboy roots, "Buckin' Horse Rider" is a country waltz depicting a rodeo man's downward spiral, while "Little Foothills Heaven" is a light-footed Western swing tune tipping a 10 gallon hat to the Canadian hills from whence the singer/songwriter hails. Actually, for an album made at Sun, Counterfeit Blues has plenty of Canadian color.
