About

On November 13, 1994, Mike Boulan formed No Cover Productions to record James Glass. He wanted his new company to be different from other record companies. He wanted the artists to have more freedom to create better music. As a guy who spent almost ten years prior to the formation of No Cover doing live recordings for local bands, it is likely he was building towards a record company ownership without even knowing it. Mike says that in the course of doing his live recordings, he came so outraged by the tremendous costs of putting out a CD that he decided to take some classes at the Recording Institute of Detroit to see if he could do better. Studying under the legendary Motown Sound Engineer, Bob Dennis, Mike says he wound up graduating at the top of his class.


Releases

In February, 1995 the Detroit Blues Band was discussing the fact that they did not have the money to release their album. Since Mike had worked with the Band for over four years as their sound engineer, he felt confident enough to approach them with his recording contract. They immediately accepted; and on June 28, 1995, the Detroit Blues Band's album became No Cover Production's first release.
