Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Corb Lund (acoustic guitar, electric guitar); Harry Stinson (acoustic guitar, background vocals); Kurt Ciesla (double bass).
  • "Horse Doctor, Come Quick," the lead-off track on Corb Lund's American debut album LOSIN' LATELY GAMBLER (following five previous Canadian releases, three of them credited to the Corb Lund Band), is the first of two songs on the disc about veterinarians, which is two more than just about any other album. It's an insight into the oddball worldview and subtle humor of Lund, who before a band-leading and solo career was part of an indie punk rock band called the Smalls. Even though he's switched over to roots country music, he has retained something of the irreverent attitude and a cowpunk feel. He sings in a molasses-thick adenoidal tenor over the playing of his backup band, dubbed the Hurtin' Albertans, which provides arrangements in a variety of rural styles including rockabilly, talking blues, Western Swing, Johnny Cash-style chicka-boom two-step, Tex-Mex, good old rock `n' roll, and Waylon Jennings-style Outlaw country. This is a songwriter who believes in writing about what he knows, and what he knows about is the cowboy life of western Canada. At the very least, his delighted listeners will never think about veterinarians the same way again.
