Come a Little Bit Closer: The Best of Willy DeVille Live is the third live album by American singer-songwriter Willy DeVille, originally released in May 2011 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Willy DeVille was an American singer and songwriter. During his thirty-five-year career, first with his band Mink DeVille (1974–1986) and later on his own, Deville created original songs rooted in traditional American musical styles. He worked with collaborators from across the spectrum of contemporary music, including Jack Nitzsche, Doc Pomus, Dr. John, Mark Knopfler, Allen Toussaint, and Eddie Bo. Latin rhythms, blues riffs, doo-wop, Cajun music, strains of French cabaret, and echoes of early-1960s uptown soul can be heard in DeVille's work.

This generous 17-track compilation of Willy DeVille's live performances covers his early years with Mink DeVille in 1977 extending to solo work in 2006. All songs were recorded in Europe, perhaps an indication of how well he was accepted there as opposed to his home country. That's especially interesting given how much his music drew almost entirely from American influences such as '60s Brill Building pop, New Orleans/Cajun, R&B, and an inner city Latin style best exemplified in a sizzling version of "Demasiado Corazon."

Many of his heavy hitters are present in fired-up versions, sometimes even better than the studio originals. Get hip on his great renditions of "Venus Of Avenue D", "Love And Emotion", "Demasiado Corazon", "Spanish Stroll" and a splendid version of the all time classic "Hey Joe".

This compilation is now available on vinyl for the first time!
