Mink DeVille's last album, Sportin' Life, was recorded for Polydor in 1985. For this album, DeVille penned two more songs with Doc Pomus ("Something Beautiful Dying" and "When You Walk My Way"). The album was recorded at the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, and DeVille and Duncan Cameron producing. The song "Italian Shoes" was a hit in some European countries, but some critics thought the album was overproduced

The Sportin' Life was the final album to bear the Mink DeVille moniker, and its final outing for Atlantic. Produced by Willy, who wrote seven of the album's ten songs and co-wrote two others with the late Doc Pomus, its sound is steeped in mid-'80s studio gloss and compression that often overwhelms quality material.

Band Name Mink Deville. Album Name Sportin' Life. Music StylePunk-Rock. Members owning this album1. 1. In The Heart Of The City. 2. I Must Be Dreaming.

Sportin' Life was recorded in 1985, with all tracks written by Willy Deville and played by a whole new bunch of extraordinary musicians. This album includes the European hit single 'Italian Shoes' and US hit single 'I Must Be Dreaming'. Superbly produced, Deville's songwriting is from the heart and to hear him singing only confirms that. This was to be the last album under the band moniker Mink DeVille, but Willy would continue touring and producing new material under his own name.
