5.0 out of 5 stars Deville-Knopfler Collaboration Works Well March 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For long-time Willy Deville fans, any new album is cause for celebration. With the release of "Miracle", Willy hoped to please a larger segment of the populace. By collaborating with Dire Straits' mainman Mark Knopfler, Willy expanded the bounds of his previous vocal efforts and added some serious musicality and near-audiophile quality to his song selection. Tracks 2 through 4 - From "Could You, Would You" to "Spanish Jack" might be the highlight reel of Willy's career. "Storybook Love" is from Knopfler's score to the movie "The Princess Bride". The songs "Southern Politician" and "Angel Eyes" match anything Mink Deville ever recorded. A must for Willy completists, "Miracle" should also please all fans of a well presented rock song or ballad. One of the best voices in rock, Willy Deville really shines on "Miracle".

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten 1987 Classic & An Audiophile's Wet Dream! September 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Willy DeVille's "Miracle" was released in 1987 in the UK on Polydor (LP - POLH 39, CD - 833669-2). It was produced by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits and featured his distinctive and beautiful guitar work across all 10 of its tracks. The album has contributions from Jeff Pocaro on drums from Toto, Chet Atkins on guitar gracing the gorgeous "Heart & Soul" and backing vocals provided by the lovely Margo Buchanan and Vikki Brown on 4 of the tracks. All tracks are written by DeVille except "Could You Would You" which is a Van Morrison cover (off the 2nd Them album from 1966, "Them Again") and a co-write with Knopfler on one track "Spanish Jack".

The album was a Full Digital Recording carrying the then desirable DDD code on the back of the sleeve - and was of course an audiophile's dream. Beautifully produced by Knopfler and played sweetly by all, the album gave vent to DeVille's New Orleans street romanticism - a style and a way about him that has captured his fans since his stunning "Cabretta" debut on Capitol in 1977. I've been a fan ever since then and have bought his albums with a sense of glee every time!

"Miracle" received good reviews at the time, and with a heavy-hitter like Knopfler on board, it should have garnished better sales and exposure, but for some reason it failed to break into the top 50 here in the UK. It's worth mentioning that it officially spurned 2 singles here in the UK which had 3 formats each (7"/12" and CD Single). The 1st was "Miracle" (CD single Polydor POCD 891) 1. Miracle. 2 I Call Your Name 3. Could You Would You. You'll no doubt notice that "I Call Your Name" is a NON-ALBUM track and is an absolute sweetie. A real shame Raven didn't use it as a bonus track here where it would have matched the release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Knopfler's Assassin November 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Willy Deville? Who is this guy? Well, for me it begins at a websight devoted to Mark Knopfler. He played this guitar and used this amp on this Willy Deville song. So I had to check out this "Miracle" CD. I bought it. Willy Deville is so captivating I forget Mark Knopfler is part of every song - Which is like an Elvis fan forgeting "the king" is part of an albumn! Lord have mercy! This Willy Deville is good...

5.0 out of 5 stars Willy's most consistent work ever! January 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"Miracle" was not a hit, despite the production by Mark Knopfler. This album though is Willy's most consistent work. Though Willy's best songs are elsewhere ("Cadillac Walk", "This Must Be The Night" and "Each Word's A Beat of My Heart"), this set has no lulls at all. Brilliant background vocals and band work plus the ever-fabulous Willy lead vocals make every song a keeper. The additional Jack Nitchze-produced trio of songs from the horrific Pacino flick "Cruising" are more interesting in hindsight than they turn out to be in actuality on this disc and the lengthy interview is interesting the first time you hear it, but not subsequently. Nevertheless, "Miracle" is well worth the premium price it commands these days because Willy is a rock and roll genius. Attention should have been paid, but it never really was, at least here in the USA. Thankfully he found an audience in Europe and has sustained a cult-figure career that has never been less than interesting and never more consistent that on the record. A miracle indeed!

Whether recording with a band as Mink DeVille, or "solo" as Willy DeVille, Mr. DeVille put out some great music that has stood the test of time. This guy had talent galore, along with a confident swagger and a rocker's bad boy attitude, and oh that golden voice!

This album, produced by Mark Knopfler, should have been MUCH better bigger when it was released. Not sure what happened. Maybe the record label dropped the ball or they didn't know to properly market Willy DeVille, but any lack of sales was not due to lack of quality songs; this album had 'em in bunches. Songs like "Could You Would You" (a Van Morrison cover), "Heart and Soul" "Assassin of Love", the title track, and "Storybook Love" (from the film "Princess Bride") rank some with the best songs DeVille ever recorded. The only real dud on here is the strange opening track, "(Due To) Gun Control." Over the years I've hoped that song would grow on me, but it never has. And I also have to say; I hate this new CD album cover. Bring back the one from the original album. This new cover just looks tacky.

Of the four bonus tracks, three are from the controversial 1980 film "Crusing." One of those songs, "Heat of the Moment" is quite good, but be prepared for a dated disco arrangement! The final bonus track is an interview with Willy (Raven must like doing this: they also tacked on a Willy DeVille interview on their reissue of the "Le Chat Bleu" CD). Nothing essential, but interesting nonetheless.

This may not be the best DeVille album, but I won't argue with anyone who says it is; it's certainly ONE of his best, and perhaps one of the more consistent ones he recorded too (barring that opening track). If you are a Mink/Willy DeVille fan, you'll want to add this one to your collection too. Fine, fine stuff.
