biography
Nathaniel Mayer (b. February 10, 1944) is a rhythm & blues singer from Detroit, Michigan who had a Top 40 hit record in 1962 with “Village of Love,” credited to Nathaniel Mayer and The Fabulous Twilights. “Village of Love” was released on Fortune Records, a Detroit record label owned by Jack and Devora Brown, who leased the record to United Artists Records. Rollicking follow-ups such as “Leave Me Alone” (late ‘62) and “I Had A Dream” (‘63) failed to duplicate the success of “Village” (although “Dream” sold well in Detroit). In 1966, Mayer released “I Want Love and Affection (Not The House Of Correction),” a funky offering in the James Brown vein. He then split with Fortune Records due to differences. “Nay Dog”, as he is also known, has a raw, highly energetic vocal style.

Completely agree, such a unique raspy voice. Reminds me of Tom Waits.
