Wild Pitch Records

Wild Pitch Records was a hip hop record label started in the mid-1980s by Stuart Fine that was eventually distributed by EMI. Artists who released records on the label included Main Source, Lord Finesse, Ultramagnetic MCs, Chill Rob G, Gang Starr, UMCs, O.C., Brokin English Klik, Hard Knocks, Super Lover Cee and Casanova Rudd, and The Coup. Together, Fine and Howard reestablished and released the label's catalogue, while also releasing records by Mary Lees Corvette, BigMouth, Mighty Purple, the Wallmans, and Chico Hamilton under its All Points Jazz label. The hip hop catalogue was eventually acquired by Jay Faires, who tried to reactivate it as part of his short-lived JCOR Entertainment label. Since the majority of its albums were released in the early 1990s and went out of print, Faires re-released the label's catalog on April 22, 2008, through Fontana Distribution.
