Slowdive – Souvlaki (2005)(Deluxe Edition)

Souvlaki is an album by the British dream pop/shoegazing band Slowdive. It was released on May 17, 1993 in the UK and on February 8, 1994 in the U.S. Widely regarded as their best album, it benefits from synthesizer contributions from co-producer Brian Eno on ‘Sing’ (which he co-wrote) and ‘Here She Comes’. The album’s U.S. release includes the previously unreleased cover of ‘Some Velvet Morning’ (written by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra in 1967) and three tracks from the band’s 1993 5 EP, comprising the four U.S. release bonus tracks.
According to interviews with the band, the album was titled after an explicit skit on the first album by telephone pranksters The Jerky Boys, containing the line: ‘My wife loves that Greek shit. She’ll suck your cock like souvlaki’.
