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.
