DJ Soul Sister's Picks 

The "DJ Soul Sister's Picks" bin at the Domino Sound Record Shack (2557 Bayou Road, 309-0871) contains selections culled from both her WWOZ radio show and weekly dance parties at Mimi's in the Marigny. Gambit asked Soul Sister ­— aka Melissa Weber ­— to expound on some of her favorites:

The J.B.'s, Hustle With Speed (1975)

"My favorite J.B.'s album. Every song on here is good. This is the reason I love the word 'hustle,' too. I really started using it after this album."

Grover Washington Jr., Live at the Bijou (1978)

"This Grover Washington Jr. album is so good. I mentioned this in Wax Poetics as one of my top 10 favorite albums of all time."

Leroy Hutson, Hutson (1975)

"Leroy Hutson is a soul singer people need to be hip to. He actually was the lead singer of the Impressions after Curtis Mayfield left. He also co-wrote 'The Ghetto' and other songs with Donnie Hathaway. He's this really soulful person, but sort of under the radar."

Donald Byrd, Ethiopian Knights (1972)

"This Donald Byrd album is pretty trippy. A lot of people are not hip to it. Very funky. It's only got three songs on it, two of them over 15 minutes long. Long-playing grooves."
