Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

Hey put these tracks together and it's a list I'd vote for.

Jeez. I vacillated on this one back and forth. Played both back to back this morning and despite some good stuff on A, I've changed my mind and I'm going B!

A's new three don't do a lot for me. Why do the Damned get more respect than the Toy Dolls? Infantile yob rock.
But the list as a whole has some of my very favourites of this Cup - Lee Dorsey, La's, Blondie, Gil...

B's first four are shite, and those Move and Beck selections are hardly scorching hot - but there's that wonderful Gene song. And its three new additions are top notch.

I think A just edges it, but they're both bipolar collections.

B all the way.
