"Come A Little Bit Closer
? The Best Of Willy DeVille Live"

Eagle Records are proud to announce the release of "Come A Little Bit Closer ? The Best Of Willy DeVille Live" album [Cat No. EAGCD442] from the late great Willy DeVille on 23 May 2011. This is a brand new compilation of classic live tracks including rare performances and versions not previously available on CD. "Come A Little Bit Closer" features all of Willy DeVille's best known tracks including "Spanish Stroll", "Cadillac Walk", "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl" and the Oscar nominated "Storybook Love".

Willy DeVille was one of the finest American songwriters of his generation. Drawing influences from Blues, Rock, Cajun, Latin, Country and more he created a rich blend of music that acknowledged its roots but was uniquely DeVille. He was also a consummate live performer with a style, charisma and presence that few could match. This new compilation brings together these two elements to give you "Come A Little Bit Closer ? The Best Of Willy DeVille Live". Tracks are taken from performances ranging from Amsterdam in 1977, through concerts at Nijmegen and Montreux in the 80s and 90s and into the 21st century with concerts from Berlin and back to Amsterdam in 2005.
