Notes

UK collection from the late, great singer/songwriter. Willy DeVille was a colorful and charismatic character whose career saw incredible highs and lows. This CD is the result of a low period of his life that eventually resulted in the recording of some unforgettable music and the release of two of his most in-demand albums. In 1988 Willy’s stock had fallen so low in the States that he couldn’t get a record deal. He retired to New Orleans to regroup and in 1990 recorded the “Victory Mixture” album with Allen Toussaint, Dr John, Eddie Bo and the Meters. This was issued in Europe on the independent Sky Ranch label and sold a very creditable 200,000 copies. In 1993 Willy toured with his band and Dr John, Johnny Adams and the Wild Magnolias as part of the New Orleans Revue. An album, “Big Easy Fantasy” was issued, containing several live New Orleans-themed songs and some tracks from “Victory Mixture” that had been remixed with added vocals or instrumentation.
