Souvlaki is the second studio album by the English dream pop/shoegazing band Slowdive. It was released on 17 May 1993 in the UK and on 8 February 1994 in the US. Widely regarded as their best album, it includes synthesizer contributions from co-producer Brian Eno on "Sing" and "Here She Comes." The album's US 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."
All songs by Neil Halstead, except when noted.
A two-disc remastered re-issue of the album was released in 2005 by Castle Music, a subsidiary label of Sanctuary Records.
