I'm loving the additions to A, they've made a good a list a contender.

I was going to say almost exactly the same thing

Darondo and D R Hooker are this rounds BCB riposte to each other, both equally excellent and acceptable to the BCB palate. So, subsequently its a draw between the other two, conceptually safe picks. So it has to come down to the other 8.

A is very BCB safe (objekt excepted and a stellar pick for me) whereas B is a bit more out there, I dare not suggest obscure but, less bcb than those more non bcb already binned out. Can't understand the objection to Morphine, rocks like an orange life preserver, love that bass.

I'm a panic depressive and suffer from manic attacks. :(

Both good, but I enjoy more on A overall, and the latest additions are more my thing too.
Thanks for the Hooker though, B. ( you know what I mean.)

Don't like either of these - kicking off with I'll Take You There is far too blunt an instrument, and while I get that jumping styles can make for interesting listening you still need some kind of link and the run of Siouxsie - Kendrick - Gene Clark has a terrible flow to it. Abstain.

I know how annoying it is to be told what you SHOULD have picked but to choose that throwaway version of "Cherry Blossom Clinic" rather than the full glorious 8 minutes of "CBC Revisited" on Shazam is a crime indeed. A still has enough going for it to compensate though.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

The three new ones put A over the top for me.
