Zebra Album Discography
By David Edwards, Mike Callahan, Patrice Eyries, Randy Watts & Tim Neely
Last update: April 27, 2014

Zebra Records was founded by Ricky Schultz, formerly Jazz Vice President for Warner Bros. and then MCA Records. Zebra was distributed by MCA.

In 1983, a year before this label started issuing records, there was a Zebra Records in France. That label was a subsidiary of Cherry Red Records of the UK, and had no known relationship to the US Zebra Records.

The Zebra label was white with black print.
