I must say that I am enjoying his latest CD "Why Don’t You Give It To Me?"
Here are some quick snapshot reviews:
Canada's national newspaper, The Globe and Mail, printed a four star review of Nathaniel Mayer disc on August 24. In fact it's highlighted as the disc of the week. "Guitarists Dan Auerbach (Black Keys) and Mathew Smith (Outrageous Cherry) team wiht bassist Troy Gregory (Dirtbombs) and drummer Dave Shettler to give Mayer a wicked backdrop to shout against". "This Album, it's the big one".

Detroit Soul R&B legend Nathaniel Mayer is back with a nice brew of R&B, blues, and funk. "Why Don't You Give It to Me?" features guitarist Matthew Smith of Outrageous Cherry, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, bassist Troy Gregory of the Dirtbombs, and drummer Dave Shettler of SSM/The Sights. The result is soul music with a psychedelic rock n' roll heart. "They're a great band, just a real different sound." - Nathaniel Mayer. "A stunning achievement from all involved." - AMG.

"Easily the best album of his career and very possibly one of the best rock/blues/soul/psychedelic albums I've ever heard." - Blogcritics.

"A slap-yourself-silly-it's-so-cool mélange of R&B, blues, funk and psychedelia." - Harp Magazine.

"Instead of borrowing tunes from Van Morrison, Brian Wilson, and Tom Waits, Mayer enlists background musicians from the Dirtbombs, Outrageous Cherry, and SSM. The result: desperate-sounding Detroit garage-soul. - Underground Online. "Not quite 'Electric Mud' - but close." - Westworld.
