Format: Audio CD
Well, one thing`s certain, Willy had been listening to a lot of Tom Waits. At least three tracks on this fine, eclectic album (which ones I`ll leave the interested to discover) show the obvious influence of the great growler, right down to a mention of alligator shoes. No suggestion of plagiarism, just respect from one maverick artist to another. Besides, if you`re going to be inspired by someone, be inspired by the best.
I have grown to love the late, lamented Willy DeVille over the years, and there`s enough of his trademark Spanish-tinged New York strut here to satisfy even the most discerning fan.
Highlights for me are the almost archetypal De Ville slow-burn romantic number Downside of Town, the equally excellent My Forever Came Today, the wonderful title track, and his tribute to legendary blues singer Muddy Waters, whom he says `rose out of the Mississippi mud`.
His unexpected version of Bryan Ferry`s Slave to love is refreshingly un-slavish, and the album closes with the fine and funky six-minute Trouble Comin` Everyday in a World Gone Wrong. On the way, he goes country with (Don`t Have a) Change of Heart, with memorable results.
This guy made the kind of music he loved - like me, he always appreciated the Drifters, which endears me to him no end - and that`s lucky for those of us who love the one-of-a-kind Willy DeVille, who died three weeks shy of his 59th birthday in 2009. Much, much too soon.
But he left behind glorious music like this.
Thanks, Willy.

I think this is really the best of DeVille's music, and that's saying a lot because I have all his cds and adore everything he does, but this is the one I listen to most. That said, I often put the others on repeat for a few hours. He has done nothing that doesn't bear listening to over and over; nothing that you could ever become weary of. So sad that he died too soon. Much too soon.

I loved this and have been smiling all the way to work when I've had it on. Bought Loup Garou years ago but it was stolen - went to replace and found all these other great albums by him. Great voice, great style, great musician and now sadly gone - yet another - and I never saw him, what a shame. Go for it and enjoy the sheer all- round accomplishment

Format: Audio CD
Willy de Ville is unquestionably one of the few truly original vocal stylists, with a voice and phrasing that echoes the harsh reality of urban life. This collection of musically intelligent songs set to ethnic and blues rhythms is as good a place as any to initiate the exploration of Wily de Ville's sustained creative ouvre. Among musicians and songwriters, he is highly respected, while to his fans his lack of huge popularity will always be a mystery.

The Return Of Willy 5 Oct. 2004
By Tskogg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Willy Deville is undeniably the most underrated performer to come out of the CBGB punk scene in the late '70s. While other performers such as the Ramones, Talking Heads and Blondie went on to success (critically if not commercially), Willy DeVille sunk into what seems like permanent career purgatory. And that's a shame because over the last 25 years, Willy and his band, Mink DeVille, created some of the most varied and creative music to ever come out of New York City.

Although it may seem as DeVille had disappeared, he has never stopped releasing records. An extremely popular act in Europe, DeVille concentrated on that market for the last decade or so but now returns stateside with the release of Crow Jane Alley.

Like most of his albums, Crow Jane Alley is a smorgasbord of DeVille delights. From the opening Mexicali rhythms and haunting lyrics of "Chieva" (about DeVille's drug abuse) to the wonderful Drifter's-like ballad "My Forever Came Today" to the incredible cover of Bryan Ferry's "Slave To Love," Willy hits on all cylinders here. He even returns to the down and dirty rock of "Cadillac Walk" with the timely "Trouble Comin' Everyday In A World Gone Wrong."

If for no other reason then years of dedicated (and talented) service to a almost-forgotten past, give Crow Jane Alley a listen.

Maybe his best 14 Oct. 2004
By Gaylen Halbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a long time Willy/Mink DeVille fan. I believe this album may be his best. I hope the CD is successful commercially if for no other reason than to expose more people to Willy's music. Easily one of the best releases in recent months and a welcome return by Willy.

He's back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 11 Nov. 2004
By Richard Rimmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great return to what Willy did as a solo artist or with Mink DeVille,great ballads,great vocals,and great R and B,granted I really miss songs like Love me like you did before with the great Rock and Roll track.

This is a return to form to me partially because there where many odd things to me about his last release starting with the sweaty rock star photos.I also prefer to hear his songs versus his cover versions.

Having said that I love all of the songs on Crow Jane alley including the two cover songs.

His vocals are great especially on his cover of "Come a little bit closer" and a song I've always loved by Bryan Ferry "Slave to Love" he brings something new to both great songs,both versions are great.I've always hated hearing exact renditions of songs by supposed artists.

The opening song Chieva took a little while and several listens to really appreciate but Right There,Right Then,Downside of Town and My Forever, WOW talk about being revitalised he hit's home runs on all three songs,instant classics all.

I have to say though that my favorite cut on this Cd is (Don't have A)Change of Heart,I don't have any idea how long this song is it might be three minutes I really don't know but it seems like just seconds as you don't want it to stop,in fact I've had not just this Cd on heavy repeat mode on my player but also this song alone I can listen to this song alone for an hour and not get enough.Basically what I'm saying is welcome back Willy,I still have the letter you sent to me when you where in Colorado, Le Chat Blue is still one of my favorite three CD's ever by anyone.Can't wait for your next release.

The return of a Master! 10 Jan. 2006
By Thomas W. Altizer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Many years ago I saw Mink DeVille open for Hall & Oates (odd but true) and I have been a Willy DeVille fan since that moment. That band was remarkable and Willy has continued to be remarkable as well in his various incarnations since Mink DeVille disbanded. A great rock and roll voice with serious songwriting talent and an uncanny ability to pick cover songs (from "Cadillac Walk" to "Slave to Love"), Willy is virtually unrivaled! I never get tired of his voice! This CD continues his interesting career, with a set of songs you'll want to hear again and again. Can't pick a favorite one; they're all fine! Get this and you will not be disappointed!

Another Great CD! 23 Jan. 2006
By B. J. Drwenski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Willy Deville you will not be disappointed with this CD.If I was forced to pick a favorite song on this CD it would be,"Crow Jane Alley".I think I stumbled onto what it is that is so darn wonderful about this amazing artist and that is this: When Willy sings he is wholly present in the moment of that song.I think that is why the listener feels as if he is singing directly to you.
