I think B has a wee bit more about it, cracking Sonics and Bobby Bland picks.


Two good lists though.

More Gauloise sucking bollocks and Bob and Earl great though it is, is looking a bit dated and lost some of its wow factor.

Both are strong on really good old stuff, but B's modern shit is slightly better than A's modern shit.
1966 and all that

Both lists are strong, fun and refreshingly not too weighed down by white boys with guitars type stuff. A is just slightly more my thing.

Both good lists that lose me only a few times, but A's best tracks- the first few and the last few mainly, it falters in the middle- make up the difference.

There's a lot I like about A, but about half of B's list could be mine, were I to stoop so low as to grace you hapless fucks with some decent music to class up the joint.

Two very strong lists, but B gets this one by a whisker
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.
