Two more good lists, shame they had to meet here. B has bigger hitting names with fine tracks, but A's got so much of what I dig too. I fucking love that Kris Okotie track, and that Little Milton track (written by Sugar Pie DeSanto) is just beautiful St Louis/Chicago soul-blues.

I was all set for B but I've changed my mind due to the improvement of A, and I prefer its Bunnymen choice.

Most of the threads aren't interesting enough. Either that or they're potentially interesting debates that I don't really have an opinion on, because they're about American things.

Oh G! There is absolutely no way you could prove anything like that!


On occasion I've looked at a Cup match and just counted the "no comment" votes, and I find they actually produce very different results quite often. There is a definite taste divide between those who listen to the links and offer an opinion, and those who just look at the list and say "A" or "B" within thirty seconds.

Anyway, A has a couple of gems - Rhetta Hughes, Bob Darin - but also quite a bit of stuff that is "obscure and cool-sounding" rather than "actually good". B has some good things as well and is maybe more consistent, but for some reason doesn't seem to hang together; I can't sense a personality there. I think the standouts mean it's a victory for A.

B was the list that beat me in the first round, and I feel it could go far, providing it keeps Cortez in the middle.

Tis true.


I'm not sure about that. There are still many voters on here that will always vote for the list that has little or no soul or funk. But they tend not to admit it or comment.


Soul and funk are opposites in my view, but I would still vote for a list with an outstanding soul track purely on the basis of that track. It's the blandness of most of the picks that get me

A is surprisingly great if a bit obscure -- I was leery but everything I clicked on I didn't already know I liked pretty much. Well done A. And it has Do It Clean.

But B has cortez the killer, villiers terrace and the skatalites....aaaaaaah.

Sabbath was the decider. In a straight listen off -- the familiar and great utterly destroyed the new and interesting.

Much to enjoy from both lists, but in the end...

Two good lists here. A squeaks it for me for it's freshness. Prefer B's Bunnymen pick though.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.
