In the late eighties, Ben was very active in the US and Europe, recording and producing music under a number of artist names and labels. During this time, he met and worked with a large number of artists we now consider important in the history of soul music.
Some of the Ben Schwag recordings were released, others were stored away for future work. The songs were recorded on analog tapes, mostly 16-track but in some cases twinned 16-track recorders to get 32 tracks of music. This is the way things were done back then!
In some cases, time has not been kind to the tapes. But work is ongoing to digitize the material, clean up the sessions and start remixing.
