Good selections, although the new songs didn't really do anything for me. A potential winner.

I like a lot of A's list, but the new tracks don't do much for the list.

B's subs, on the other hand, maintain he high standard.

Funny thing. I looked at both lists and immediately thought A. It's a very familiar list by now and the big, big tracks for me are ;


Hercules - Aaron Neville
That summer feeling - jonathan richman
Gravel Pit - wu-tang clan
ring the alarm - tenor saw
Work It - Missy Elliott
What does your soul look like - DJ Shadow
heatwave - Martha reeves and the vandellas

All very personal favourites.But on closer inspection B has as many favourites but more favoured tracks.

Some Velvet Morning - Lee & Nancy
Just My Imagination - the Temptations
Cherie - Suicide
People Get Ready - the Impressions
Heroes - David Bowie
Pressure Drop - Toots & the Maytals
Pale Blue Eyes - the Velvet Underground
Whole Wide World - Wreckless Eric
Nearly Lost You - Screaming Trees
Song To the Siren - This Mortal Coil
Atmosphere - Joy Division

B
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

A - Hank Williams, Shangri-Las, Heatwave ... and it's not as if it was a bad list before.

I was saying to the compiler of A last week how much I'd like to hear this and I genuinely would. It's a bit of a shame the additional tracks are so rooted in an idea of classicism, there are things beyond early soul and country. however it is still a class list.
However i've liked the variety of B from the start and it hits home with a number of winners.

Edit:Changed my mind. I think I'm being undully swayed by People Get Ready. Looking at B's additional five, they don't really do it for me baby, whilst O..I mean A has gone for Heatwave. That choice does it for me.
