I would probably vote for B even against my own list.

It's

A

mainly for that tremendous Serge song, and nice Sonics, Bob and Earl, and Bobby Bland tracks.

B has some great stuff, but the Pretties thing I think must have been chosen just 'cos it's an obscurity (it's nothing special). And that dreadful Two Ronnies thing is still there. Unfathomable, that one.

A seems more fun, B starts well but loses me.
On reflection though there's more substance on B (Him & The Others is a great pick and so's The Watersons) whereas A is a bit obvious in some of its selections. B needs to tidy up its midriff a bit with those Beefheart and Ronnie selections. Both enjoyable though..B

See, I told you B wasn't me.

It's still the most 'hatz-friendly' list around still, though a touch less so this round.

I like A, but the Daft Punk is what they should have gotten rid of. I still would have voted for it against most remaining lists.

A

Again, I love Ronnie Lane and have that album.

I think that track is poor.

A has Buffalo Springfield and B Bland. Can't say Double Dutch sounds any better than I recall, however.

I'm not sure how much has changed on A but it's still killer.

Anyone who hasn't seen Jim Jones Revue ought to if they can; fantastic band.
It gives me great pleasure to vote for the two Ronnies again :D

B's full of good artist, wrong choice of song but does just about enough. A is semi-decent, good Talcy Malcy and Springfield choices.

Tight matchup, but A has this one
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.
