Backatcha Records presents Swave Villi Us, a collection of sixteen sought after independent soul cuts, recorded between 1971-1984 by various artists across the US and beyond.

The album comes as a 2xLP, complete with extensive sleeve notes, featuring top-shelf rarities end-to-end.

From 70s Californian psych-folk, to downtempo ballads from the southern states, from mid-tempo gems and sweet soul from the Midwest, to 80s Sunshine State talent show entries and Bahamian dreamy percussion-led guitar jams, the selection showcases essential top-shelf regional sounds spanning the broader soul spectrum across nearly two decades.

Previously released on Backatcha in 2019 from the vaults of DC’s Black Fire records, Theatre West’s ‘Children Of Tomorrow’s Dreams’:

Also featured are two previously unreleased versions of Nature’s Choice ‘Never Get A Chance’ and Watch Tower’s ‘Forever, Together’ led by Ohio talent Maurice Moore, from original session tapes and exclusive to this compilation.
