Editorial Reviews

The mind and voice of Mink DeVille-the band who brought roots music to the '70s NY punk scene-passed away in 2009. He was a compelling, charismatic performer; this comp collects live cuts from '77 to 2005: Storybook Love (his song heard in The Princess Bride ); Spanish Stroll; Savoir Faire; Slave to Love; Little Girl; Slow Drain , and more!

Format:Audio CD
At first it seemed only a matter of timing that had Willy Deville and his band, Mink DeVille, part of the New York punk rock scene. Though they shared a stage with the Ramones, Patti Smith and Television (and toured with Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello), their music drew more from the Brill Building than CBGB. Signed to Capitol, the band's first four albums were produced by Phil Spector protégés Jack Nitzsche and Steve Douglas, and each brilliantly melded the Drifters' romanticism with electric blues, Latin influences and the downtown edginess of the Velvet Underground. What really made DeVille fit among the punk rock scene was his artistic daring; the band's fine-tuned productions were the polar opposite of punk rock's DIY aesthetic, but their music was a comrade in the sort of emotional authenticity that challenged the reign of corporate rock.

DeVille provided a visual center point for the act with his bouffant hair and pencil-thin mustache, crooning perfectly crafted originals and well-selected covers. Those who saw them in club dates, or touring concert halls with Lowe and Costello were regularly blown away by DeVille's showmanship and the resonance of his music. Eagle Records' seventeen-track set cherry picks live performances from 1977 through 2005, collecting along the way many of DeVille's best originals, including "Venus of Avenue D," "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl," "Spanish Stroll," "Just Your Friends," "Just to Walk That Little Girl Home" (co-written with Doc Pomus) and a moving version of his Oscar-nominated end-title theme for The Princess Bride, "Storybook Love." Also included are covers of songs he made his own, including Moon Martin's "Cadillac Walk" and Barry & Greenwich's "Little Girl.

Great live performances from a very underrated musician. This will give you a better feel for him than his studio albums. Thanks for the memories Willy!
