By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've said it before, and I'll say it again here: Willy De Ville never made enough records. However, this one, from 1999, is an almost routinely excellent affair. Because it's on East West, it benefits from a decent recording budget, and De Ville responds with a bravura set of performances, vocally and lyrically, and the mixture of originals and covers is never less than superb. He thoroughly re-invents the hoary old Searchers chestnut, 'Needles And Pins' with something far darker. The Gospel / Blues stomp of Mississippi Fred McDowell's 'Goin' Over The Hill' is equally stirring, and the calypso-flavoured 'the Downing of The Flamingo', a story-song, is delightful. 'Bacon Fat' is a sleazy, bluesy old school R&B slow smoker, too. The production, by Jim Dickinson, allows De Ville to shine without stepping all over him. A fine record, arguably one of his best. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new side of Willy 8 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a surprise, a new side of Willy.
A lot of nice covers but als a set of nice new songs. Willy turned out te be a 'Music Hall' singer.
Nice quite songs mixed by more bluesy songs. CD not suitable as background 'wal paper'. You start tot like the CD once you really listened to the songs. Can't wait to see him doing a live gig!

5.0 out of 5 stars Track this one down - you won't be disappointed 23 Mar 2008
By Ronald Pesch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Willy/Mink DeVille fan who hopes one day to see the band on tour stateside. The vocal emotion that comes through from DeVille on each release is always a highlight of his albums. "Time to Time" is heartbreaking, and perhaps my favorite DeVille ballad. Called the "leading romantic of the post-new-wave era," I believe one could expand the span of time to include the modern age.

Gypsy Deck of Hearts, Across the Borderline, Lay Me Down Easy, (Don't Want You) Hanging Around My Door: each are individually stunning. This is a great album, and well-worth your effort to track down a copy. I sure hope his latest, Pistola, is released in the states!

By Michael A. Shirer - Published on Amazon.com

This is a $ 40.00 cd. I had a copy and can't find it. I ordered another copy (that is how good it is !!!!!). DeVille is an astounding tallent who dosen't follow fads and has the highest artistic integrity.

it is a great injustice that willy deville was not more popular in america. perhaps it is because his songs represent so many different influences that it is difficult to classify his music. his albums are very difficult to find. this one is very good- i especially like the 1st 3 songs, "bacon fat" and "18 hammers." also see his great live performances on youtube.
