This disc chronicles another 14 releases from the Detroit blues label No Cover Productions. This is the ninth sampler in the series each one containing 14 tracks from 14 different No Cover releases, all in cronological order. We start this one off with a couple live tracks from "Psychild" Robert Noll and his Blues Mission Band from the "Retrospect" series of live recordings featuring recordings by No Cover President Mike Boulan during live shows before the label existed in the early 1990's. First it's the "Devil Man Boogie" from Vol. 3 which was a staple of Robert's live shows at this time. Next we hear "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" from Vol. 4 which was also a Blues Mission favorite. Detroit's rockin' reptiles, The Alligators let us hear the opening cut from the CD "Down At Big Kadies" titled "Long Way Down". This is followed by "Your Man's In Jail" from Count Bracey & The Pleasuretones off the 2008 Blues Challenge sampler from the 2008 finals in Detroit. John Latini gives us "Blues Makes Me Feel Good" from The Best Of Heatstock 2009, followed by, the legendary John Sinclair with The Planet D Nonet from the CD "Viper Madness" doing "Struttin' With Some Barbecue". The Billy Davis Rhythm Machine returns with the title track from the CD "Backballed" Billy's 6th release with us! Which is followed by "Bam!" from Crossroads Blues Band off the Blues Challenge 2009 Finals. Roni Collins does a great cover of "If Trouble Was Money" written by his uncle Mr. Bo Collins from the Detroit Blues Society's "Headstone Fundraiser CD" Laith Al Saadi gives us "No One Left To Blame" from "The Best Of Heatstock 2010". The Boa Consrtictors check in next with "Hurricane" from the CD "The Boa Constrictors - Live At Callahan's Music Hall" then it's another trip back to "The Best Of Heatstock" series for a track from the 2011 show called "Gettin' In" by The Flying Crowbars. The Mike Espy Group gives us "P & G Shffle" from "Blues Vol. 2" and finally from the CD "Always Blue" the M. Espy Trio leaves us with "Greenie's Blues" to close this sampler out with style.

Live At Memphis Smoke


NCP098 LENNY WATKINS

It was a great deal of fun doing these recordings, with Neil Sever at the board all I had to do was enjoy the show for the most part. I did have to bring down the Hammond B-3 from the studio for one show, which was a back breaker, but the sound it produced was well worth the effort. After the release of the "Live & Lowdown!" (NCP023) from Bobby Murray, these tapes went into the No Cover archives for a few years. Now it's time to re-visit them for the release of Lenny Watkins' first ever solo CD "Live At Memphis Smoke" (NCP098). Lenny's dynamic vocals and stage presence wow the crowd which only serves to energize him even more. I am glad to have had the chance to work with all the great musicians who back Lenny on this Cd. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.

he can remember. Now he has one called "Merry Christmas To The World" and he couldn't be
happier. The Sax Maniacs have gone through some personel changes through the years which
have only made the band grow stronger. Their new CD "Will The Last One Out Of Detroit,
Please Turn Out The Lights" is a strong set of all-original songs. Robbie Lee Noll is a great Acoustic
Player, and his CD "Dear Friend" shows that rarely seen side, cut live at "Lenny's Coffe Gallery,

Deep In Blues Country


NCP094 CHRISTY AND JEFF HOWARD

Jeff and Christy Howard are a husband-wife, singer-songwriter team, who are well known to the Detroit blues community. This CD "Deep In Blues Country" (NCP094) is their first acoustic release. They are also featured on the "Blues For Katrina" CD (NCP070) doing the song "I've Got A Weakness". They were finalists in 2005, and won the 2006 - Motor City Blues Challenge (acoustic solo/duo division). They represented Detroit in the 2007 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. Jeff was formerly lead guitarist for the late Butler Twins, legends of Detroit blues, who had two hit blues albums in England during the mid-1990s and won two Detroit Music Awards in 2000. Christy's vocal style is soulful but mellow, smoky and sultry, yet melodic and soothing. Her country roots, deep in Tennessee, come out when she sings giving her a distinctive sound and a down-to-earth persona. Together, Christy and Jeff's music is a unique blend of Country, Rock, and Blues. Live they also perform chicago-style and delta blues, featuring some of the original blues compositions that are found on this CD. (13 original tracks)

Midnight Groove


NCPR82 KENNY MILLER BLUES BAND

This CD was originally released in 1990 on the K. Hits record label.
I am glad to be able to help bring this great bluesman back into the limelight where he belongs. Kenny Miller used to be a regular on the Detroit scene when I was first getting involved, but for several years he has been hard to find.
Let's hope that the reissue of this live CD, "Midnight Groove" (NCP082) and also a studio CD Kenny cut in 1996 Titled "Kenny Blues" (NCP080) as well as some new recordings that may happen in the near future will help change that.
Midnight Groove was recorded at Chrissy's Lounge, Mt. Clemens Mi.

Blues For Katrina & the McDowell Family


NCP071 VARIOUS ARTISTS/BENEFIT CD

When Katrina hit, it immediately became obvious that the Louisiana Gulf Coast would be in need of massive amounts of aid and assistance, not just for a few weeks,but for months and years.

Mike Boulan of No Cover Productions decided to help.  Mike started by organizing this CD "Blues for Katrina & The McDowell Family"(NCP071) to assist local bluesman Odell's family.  Odell Blues Boy "D" has 3 sisters who were living in the New Orleans area at the time Katrina hit - two families were in the lower 9th ward.

 The call went out for musicians to come into the studio and over 20 bands and solo performers responded, donating their time and effort to the cause. They recorded 28 songs, mostly originals, for the benefit CD. (Which ended up becoming a 2 CD project) The songs aren't all about the devastation caused by Katrina, although a few are, but the energy and spirit of the performers is readily evident. There was a special energy in the studio over the course of the sessions.

The artists on this CD are:

1. Little Jr. Cannaday: "What Did I Do So Bad"
2. Big Shorty: "Gas Station Chicken"
3. Leonardo: "Love In Vain"
4. Erich Goebel: "City Blues"
5. "Lonesome" Dave Paul: "Mojo Hand"
6. Chris Leigh: "Voodoo Boogie"
7. Wailin' Dale & The DT's: "Out The Door"
8. The Tones: "Windy City (Willie Dixon)"
9. Blues In The City: "Freeway Blues"
10. Mary Thompson & The Delta Children: "Jelly Roll"
11. Bobby Murray: "Sunny Side Of Heaven"
12. The Billy Davis Rhythm Machine: "Katrina"
13. Travelin' Blues: "Nightly Things"
