A has a few decent tunes, but lets itself down badly with Steve Miller and The Kinks.

B, by contrast, is fucking ace all the way through.

B is ace. Opium for the People? Loved that song since I was in the 5th form. A few other corkers, too. A is fine and dandy but B has a few personal favourites on it.

Despite some standouts(I have used the same Beefheart track myself before) there's too much in B that rubs me up the wrong way. A doesn't entirely convince but does enough.

A couple of stumbles in A but the rest is assured and lighly funky.

I fear that too much time spent in B's company would result in a visit to the Nit Nurse or a Kohl overdose.

Much to love in A, but Floppy Boot Stomp!

Another accurate count from Mr Gash.

B was Belle Lettre. I will calculate the best losers after the final results are in tonight.

A, you need to get me three new songs by 20:00 GMT tomorrow, Sunday. PMs work now.
