Mink DeVille (1974–86) was a rock band known for its association with early punk rock bands at New York's CBGB nightclub and for being a showcase for the music of Willy DeVille. The band recorded six albums in the years 1977 to 1985. Except for frontman Willy DeVille, the original members of the band played only on the first two albums (Cabretta and Return to Magenta). For the remaining albums and for tours, Willy DeVille assembled musicians to play under the name Mink DeVille.

Artists Mink DeVille Sportin' Life In the Heart of the City. In the Heart of the City Mink DeVille. Top Songs Mink DeVille.

The opener, "In the Heart of the City," is a prime example. Here DeVille's brilliant dramatic meld of Pomus' doo wop and R&B-inflected rock & roll romanticism and Bruce Springsteen's sense of urban drama pours forth from lyrics, melody, and DeVille's amazing vocal. But the overblown keyboards, compressed guitars, and drum machines blunt the song's considerable power. The same goes for "I Must Be Dreaming" with what sounds like a vocoder-processed backing chorus.
