Mainly because I'm more familiar with the songs.

Love Pass The Peas, but B gets it for me.

A is an interesting list with some good picks (although why anyone would consider any version of "born slippy" other than underworld's is quite beyond me) but in the end the sheer quality of the songs on B carries it through.

A's got some great funk, and its made me put Betty Wright on which is the best thing i've heard tonight plus Love and the Congos are great

I think i voted for B last time and it almost lost out just because it was stuff i'd read before and A seemed all fresh and cool but it's still a great set of songs, Hercules, Idiot wind and Who Knows where the time goes pretty much sum up everything you could ever want from music.

B but A was unluckly to come up against it and it's made me play some great stuff

Just been playing Plej on youyube, it's a contemporary take on a classic jazz funk sound - very nice indeed. The choice of a sharp operator. Elsewhere A has a great funk selection in George MaCrae, actually picks one of the best tracks from Forever Changes ( something not everyone has achieved), good roots selection from The Congos (this year's surprise act) and plenty more besides. Like the whole vibe of this list a lot.

B is a good list too and will get plenty of votes, it's a more populist list than A and will probably be too strong. But I'm going with the more personalised A.

A has pretty close taste to me, bad news for doing well in the competition, but good news generally.

I think I'd enjoy A as a mixtape but B's got at least 5 killer tracks that I can't argue with (despite, I think voting against it last time).

Edit: shows you what I remember; it's a second hit for B.
