A has a nice Cockney Rebel track and a load of other stuff I either couldn't listen to (Motions) or didn't interest me much (Spacemen 3).

The Gene Clark in list B is the only one I'd heard already. Fortunately, much of the rest of the list (Ruffin, Ronson, dBs) is pretty good too.

It started off being a close-run thing, but once I got to the Siouxsie (obv), Kendrick Lamar & Gene Clark,

B

had won me over.

I do like A's Rheingold, though...

I'm really liking the way B is shaping up, some great Cup picks.

Nothing truly mind-blowingly great on either list (other than the Clark, of course), though B generally interests me more. The Cockney Rebel and Speedy Keene are the big winners from A, but it's not quite enough.

Now these are clearly two of the best lists so far. I'm abstaining for now, as I hate to pick one over the other.

Two good lists here, strong selections with a good variety of sounds.
When i saw them i was leaning towards B, but after listening i think A has won me over. The Motions track was probably my least fave, but after that i enjoyed all of them quite a bit. That Lyn Williams is a very nice discovery, the WG track has a very nice vibe to it and does the 80s Gallic closer. Not much wrong with B, it's strong most of the way through too with lots of artists i like, but it doesn't surprise as much.

B has a nice eclecticism that should see it through.

Interesting that two quite solid lists both have two absolute limp lettuces of tracks (Motions/Speedy Keen, Chris Stamey/Mick Ronson)

I almost plumped for B purely because of the Objekt track, and including something current in Ken and Rick Lamar, but I think A just nicks it. The Jo Lemaire, Rheingold & Spacemen 3 tracks were too strong for the opposition.

Nothing I disliked on A particularly but no real wow factor anywhere and all a bit underwhelming. Didn't like all of B by any means but the twin big hitters of Clark and Ruffin see it home
