Even though they're mainly considered "just another one of those cult/classic/crap old German Metal labels" by most, they had plenty of non-Metal acts in their roster as well. They also distributed a handful of private/micro-label releases, so occationally their logo turned up on albums that weren't really their own products (listed at the bottom). Inbetween I've included the only (?) 2 titles on Backbone Records, Wishbone's reissue branch active for a short term in the late 80's.

WBLP 1 Tsunami s/t LP 1984 The heavy "Call Off The Dogs" display some sharp teeth and could almost have fit on an early Exciter album as the token Heavy Cruncher, otherwise it's pretty play-by-numbers US Heavy Rock.
