To celebrate CL’s annual music issue we asked a random mix of Atlanta tastemakers, critics and promoters to share their greatest playlists.

Lance Ledbetter, founder of Dust-to-Digital

1. Rev. Johnny L. Jones "God Specializes"

2. Omar Souleyman "Leh Jani"

3. Chubby Parker "Bib-a-Lollie-Boo"

4. Andy Iona and His Islanders "Ta-hu-wa-hu-wa-i"

5. Cecil Barfield "Georgia Blues"

6. Brother Claude Ely "There Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down"

7. Chrissy Zebby Tembo and Ngozi Family "Trouble Maker"

8. Marika Papagika "Smyrneiko Minore"

9. Group Bombino "Imuhar"

10. John Fahey "Desperate Man Blues"

My favorite Atlanta-based artists is Rev. Johnny L. Jones of Second Mount Olive Baptist Church. His nickname is the Hurricane, and after you hear some of his songs and sermons you'll know why. The music is supplied by organ and tambourine with the congregation backing Johnny, and the result is some of the most ecstatic sounds I've ever heard. Check him out on WYZE 1480AM every other Saturday at 11a.m.
