We are told:
This generous 17-track compilation of Willy DeVille’s live performances covers his early years with Mink DeVille in 1977 extending to solo work in 2006. All songs were recorded in Europe, perhaps an indication of how well he was accepted there as opposed to his home country. That’s especially interesting given how much his music drew almost entirely from American influences such as ‘60s Brill Building pop, New Orleans/Cajun, R&B, and an inner city Latin style best exemplified in a sizzling version of “Demasiado Corazon.”
Many of his heavy hitters are present in fired-up versions, sometimes even better than the studio originals. Get hip on his great renditions of “Venus Of Avenue D”, “Love And Emotion”, “Demasiado Corazon”, “Spanish Stroll” and a splendid version of the all time classic “Hey Joe”.
This compilation is now available on vinyl for the first time!
