Willy De Ville's band Mink De Ville played soulful rockers and ballads with a latin twist while punk reigned in 1977. This compilation of his first 3 albums collects almost all the tracks of Cabretta, Return to magenta and Le chat bleu. Gunslinger, Cadillac walk, Spanish stroll, Rolene, I broke that promise, This must be the night and Just to walk that little girl home are all masterpieces of urban rock. Mink De Ville recorded a good 4th album for another label so this is not the complete best of them.

This unassuming and slightly forgotten 2001 CD compilation is a superb little number - and for two of the best reasons - track choices and sound.

"Cadillac Walk - The Mink DeVille Collection" by MINK DeVILLE on EMI/Capitol 5350162 (Barcode 724353501624) gives us 22 songs taken from Willy DeVille's first three albums for Capitol Records credited as the band MINK DeVILLE - all of which feature truly fantastic 24-Bit Remastering by EVREN GOKNAR. There have been reissues of this stuff before but never sounding this good...it breaks down as follows (70:22 minutes):

1. Spanish Stroll
2. Mixed Up Shook Up Girl
3. She’s So Tough
4. Cadillac Walk
5. Gunslinger
6. Venus Of Avenue D
7. Little Girl
Tracks 1 to 7 are from their debut album "Mink DeVille" [aka "Cabretta"] issued in the US in June 1977 on Capitol ST-11631 and June 1977 in the UK on Capitol E-ST 11631 (7 of its 10 songs are here - produced by JACK NITZSCHE)

8. ‘A' Train Lady
9. Guardian Angel
10. Confidence To Kill
11. Soul Twist
12. Desperate Days
13. I Broke That Promise
14. Just Your Friends
Tracks 8 to 15 are from their second album "Return To Magenta" issued April 1978 in the USA on Capitol ST-11780 and July 1978 in the UK on Capitol E-ST 11780 (7 of its 10 songs are here - also produced by JACK NITZSCHE)

16. This Must Be The Night
17. Savoir Faire
18. Mazurka
19. Turn You Every Way But Loose
20. Bad Boy
21. Just To Walk That Little Girl Home
22. That World Outside
Tracks 16 to 22 are from their third album "Le Chat Bleu" issued in the UK in March 1980 on Capitol E-ST 25390 and in the USA in September 1980 on Capitol ST-11955.

To anyone who doesn`t know the sadly late Willie DeVille`s music this single-CD compilation, taken from his first three albums, will be a godsend.
I`ve had this for years but recently dug it out again, and it hit the spot like nothing else would have done.
Another reviewer here rightly points out echoes of Lou Reed, and the indebtedness to such Spanish-tinged music as that by groups like The Drifters. The music here is much more benign however than Lou and tougher than The Drifters (though I may as well say here & now that nobody beats the original Drifters in my book).
Willie sounds like a man who knew exactly what kind of music he wished to make. The whole thing reeks of Spanish Harlem (most odd, since our man was born in Stamford, Connecticut) with some of the influences you can hear in the music of Springsteen or Southside Johnny in the mix too.
There isn`t a dud track here, even though one or two of them coast along quite happily in a less inspired way. But when you`ve got songs like the gravely beautiful I Broke That Promise, Spanish Stroll, You`re My Angel, the marvellous Venus of Avenue D, and Mixed Up Shook Up Girl, then you`ve struck gold. In the excellent booklet notes, Ben Edmonds tells a lovely story of Mick Jagger (who didn`t know of Mink DeVille at the time) hearing the latter track in a recording studio, and spontaneously bopping around to it on his own. I`d like to have seen that.
I`m a sucker for this kind of music, and it was very sad to learn of Willie`s death three years ago just before his 59th birthday. He sounds like one of the good guys, but he could sing up a storm, and had a band who play behind him like men possessed.
Whether you want to do the Cadillac Walk, the Spanish Stroll - or just bop alone like a mixed up shook up dude - this 71-minute collection will move you.

I adore the sound of Willy deVille's voice....used to have all his stuff on vinyl....still do but as I play it so rarely I thought I would buy some WDV cd's and am enjoying listening to them again....he was so fabulous live!

I purchased this cd on a sudden remembrance of the track "Spanish Stroll" from the 70s.Apparently this was their only British chart success . Having never heard any other tracks on this album I was immediately impressed.Cannot stop playing it.Probably the best album in the .....

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 Feb. 2011
Format: Audio CD
Drawn from the first three albums of Mink DeVille, this compilation of the brilliant but strangely under-appreciated Willy opens with the edgy rhythm of Spanish Stroll where Spanish guitar, soulful female backing vocals and streetwise delivery reminiscent of Lou Reed guarantee a timeless classic. The stylistic variety is breathtaking, from the catchy doowop of Mixed Up Shook Up Girl to the late 70s angry punk of Gunslinger in the vein of Patti Smith or Richard Hell & The Voidoids.

A blend of moody ballad and furious rock, Venus Of Avenue D erupts in powerful riffs whilst atmospheric sax graces the tranquil parts. A galloping beat heralds the arrival of Confidence to Kill, a brief spurt of angry punk. Cadillac Walk is a brooding story song in a mix of southern boogie and new wave rock. Other energetic uptempo rockers are Soul Twist and Savoir Faire.

The most magnificent ballads on this album include the moving love song Guardian Angel, the rousing You Just Keep Holding On, the romantic This Must Be The Night and the achingly tender I Broke That Promise with spoken vocals in Spanish. And then there's the zydeco sound of the lilting and hypnotic Mazurka ...

As songwriter and performer, Willy DeVille ranks amongst the greats like Springsteen,
