Music Video: Mink DeVille – Spanish Stroll

Mink DeVille Spanish Stroll

Mink Deville was one the the bands playing CBGBs in the mid 1970s.  Hardly what you would call punk, Mink Deville blended soul, R&B, rock, and blues.  Their first two albums, Cabretta and Return to Magenta, got played a good bit on WNEW-FM back then.  When the band broke up, lead singer Willy DeVille kept on going until he died back in 2009.

Last night, I was in a restaurant when Mink Deville was played over the sound system.  Later when I came home, this video, for Spanish Stroll, showed up on my Facebook feed.  OK, I can take the hint.
