THE GREAT NATHANIEL MAYER WOULD HAVE TURNED 73 TODAY! The raw rockin' soul sound, in-the-red recording style, and wild intensity on these masterpieces express the NY Night Train aesthetic as much as anything ever cut into wax and if you've been coming to the parties over the years, you'll be familiar with all of these as they never stop turning. While these all are all ripped directly from the original 45s, anyone can tell you that no digitized version such as this, or vinyl reproduction, bootleg, etc, comes close to the unusual feel of an authentic Fortune record. But this is the next best thing! Here's an ordered list of DJ Jonathan Toubin's 13 favorite NAY DAWG Fortune sides (1961 - 1966). Go here for the entire playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeR4fPqwIhnClDBfQdmA-xyp-pkW3tact #BONUS: "RIDE IN MY 225" (2005): After Norton Records released the lost Gino Washington-produced 1968 "I Don't Want No Bald Headed Woman Telling Me What to Do," Nathaniel Mayer was inspired to make a big comeback. With the exception of an obscure 1980 single, the music public hadn't heard from Nay Dog since his final Fortune single in 1966. This 21st Century live version of the Spyder Turner Fortune Records masterpiece he helped pen in 1964 (hear it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AblqgBtdmw) was recorded in 2003 at Detroit's Launch pad with a great lineup of contemporary Motor City rock'n'roll musicians. While the comeback version of Mayer had a deeper voice, he used it to great affect, and with no shortage of personality, stage energy, and willing collaborators, the long lost "Village of Love" star was found and spent the last few years of his life recording and touring for an adoring public. more on Nathaniel Mayer and his music: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathaniel_Mayer http://www.michiganrockandrolllegends.com/mrrl-hall-of-fame/236-nathaniel-mayer http://nodepression.com/article/nathaniel-mayer-showmans-life http://www.metrotimes.com/detroit/fortune-ate-comeback/Content?oid=2189850 graphics by AVI SPIVAK (http://www.avispivak.com)! You're listening to my daily addition to the New York Night Train Party Platter playlist. Each track here is recorded directly from my original 45s (no bootlegs, reproductions, etc) to give you an idea of what the real deal authentic vinyl sounds like. COME BACK EVERY DAY FOR A NEW FIX! Because the records pass so quickly at my danchttps://www.youtube.com/JonathanToubin https://www.facebook.com/newyorknight... https://twitter.com/jonathantoubin https://instagram.com/jonathantoubin/ e parties, this channel is an attempt to stop and focus on one record at a time in hopes to personally learn more about each one and at the same time turn you on to the artists, tracks, labels, etc. I'm just hipping myself to a lot of these records for the first time as well - so you can view this as our journey to learning more about cool old records together! But mostly I hope this music moves you as much as it moves me. Get your enjoys, Jonathan Toubin Soul Proprietor, New York Night Train
