5.0 out of 5 stars Energy 7 Sep 2012
By Bulldog
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is so good. Willy is at his best and the energy in his voice and in the music makes this one of my favourites - 3rd to Crow Jane Alley and Chat Bleu. One of few artists who could come across so consistently great in a live recording. So sad his career was cut short too soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Willy outdoes himself here 23 Feb 2000
By Ralph Jas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite live recordings of all time. It's spontaneous and the sheer pleasure that went in the making is present in every song. All the goodies are here, including Spanish Stroll, Demasiado Corazon, Hey Joe, Lilly's Daddy's Cadillac, Bamboo Road and a very special, emotional rendition of Heaven Stood Still, with just Willy's voice and a violin. If there's only one album by Willy DeVille you should like to have, it should be this one. But if you like this... you want to have the rest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like being there . . . 6 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been a DeVille fan since he first broke in the late 70s and have seen him countless times in NYC -- including the date that this album is recorded at. At first, I wasn't really taken with the idea of a live album of his, because its release seemed like a throw-away, "let's just get this out there" kind of effort. I knew it was out for a long time, but the preceeding review prompted me to order it and check it out. Simply put, I was totally blown away by this thing. Only in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that a live recording would capture Willy's gut-wrenching vocals and both the subtle nuance and raw power of the band. I saw these shows and they were incredible experiences. The CD captures it all -- perfectly. Great performances, very good sound quality. It ranks up there with his very best studio albums and is, quite possibly, his finest release ever. This thing kicks like you couldn't imagine and even if you're not a big fan of Willy's, check it out if you like ballsy deliveries and a Grade-A band. Simply fabulous.

Willy Deville at his best alive. A great album that you can find reissued under the title "Live in Paris and New York". Look for it and enjoy. Live in Paris and New York

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best live albums ever 27 May 2012
By Luigi Facotti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Prompted by the Ace/Big Beat re-issue project - which includes this superb Wagram/FNAC CD - I went back through my Willy De Ville CDs to see what was new. This CD, the first I bought on a trip to Barcelona in 1993 (my copy is on the Spanish label Tabata), sounds as good now as it did then. Well recorded with lots of energy and great musicianship - a professional at his peak and an excellent place to start for anyone interested in Willy. I never saw the live shows, but can only imagine - having listened to this one and his live release on Eagle with shows from Berlin - that the energy must have been up there with Kid Creole and the Coconuts - consumate entertainment.
Willy has not been well served in the availability of his music - the early stuff on Capital as Mink De Ville (except for an excellent 24-bit remastered 2000 Collection on Capitol EU and the Raven reissues) has suffered from exceptionally poor mastering, the Atlantic/East West/Polydor recordings are hard to find (but look for Loup Garou and Horse Of A Different Color. On the first Willy duets with little Ms. Dynamite - Brenda Lee while the latter has an unlisted extra track - Chicken - that speaks to the versatility of Mr. De Ville), while the New Orleans phase is scattered on a variety of labels - Orleans, WMD, FNAC/Forward and Eagle. Hopefully the new Ace/Big Beat program will rectify these issues - especially with the meticulous remastering that Ace is deservedly known for - but really Willy needs a proper retrospective of his work - a boxed set -to place it in context. A musical legend ignored in his homeland - except in NOLA.
5.0 out of 5 stars Willie De Ville was the most important vocalist following the relocation of Elvis to another state 18 Jun 2013
By The Legendary Danny O'Doul - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes, Willie is, or was, the coolest white dude to ever sing cosmic soul music
since Elvis left the state without telling anyone.
Now that Willie has left the building, we only have Tom Jones left.
The product is great!
