  1. Cabretta

    Cabretta, known as Mink DeVille in the United States, was the 1977 debut album by Mink DeVille. It peaked at number 186 on the Billboard 200 chart and was voted the 29th best album of 1977 in the Village Voice's Pazz & Jop critics' poll. A single from the album, “Spanish Stroll,” was a top-20 hit in the U.K. Cabretta was produced by Jack Nitzsche, who would help shape Mink DeVille's sound and collaborate with leadsinger and composer Willy DeVille for many years to come. Joining the band on saxophone was Steve Douglas, who, like Nitzsche, is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and who would also play on many Mink DeVille albums. The album gets its name from a type of leather jacket. Willy DeVille said the Cabretta leather was like his band's music, tough but tender.
