Corb Lund is a Juno Award and Canadian Country Music Association Award winner. His new album, “Counterfeit Blues” has been released in Canada. It contains 12 tracks and is available digitally, on CD and on vinyl. In addition, a two disc CD/DVD containing “Counterfeit Blues” and the documentary “Memphis Sun.”

Prior to listening to the album, I had not listened to Corb Lund previously. I highly enjoyed “Counterfeit Blues.” As the record is a compilation of fan favourites, it is a great introduction to new listeners. However, it will also please prior fans of the artist. The tracks were rerecorded live in a two day recording session at Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. It has a raw sound and successfully pulls off recording “off the floor”.

My favourite tracks on the album are “Good Copenhagen”, “Hurtin’ Albertan”, and “Five Dollar Bill.” If you have enjoyed Corb Lund’s previous releases, definitely purchase the album if you have yet to. If you, like myself, love country music, I would recommend checking out “Counterfeit Blues.”

Rating: 3.5/ 5
