Two good lists but A just shades it due to Nick Drake and The Who. Nearly threw it away withe the Moby Dick choice though.

There's no denying the greatness of many of the songs on A's list (and unlike many, I can quite happily forgive one aberration - we all have our little peccadillos and it shows a list is hearfelt), but some of B's picks have a special place in my heart, not least "The Young Mod's Forgotten Story" and the quite breathtaking "past, Present and Future," not to mention the irresistible Jackie Wilson song.

I'll forgive the Roxy Music song and go with B.

The same three are the ones for me too. B

A has plenty of good songs but the overall feel is a bit stodgy. B is hardly perfect but it's definitely interesting.

A was doing fine until "Moby Dick" floored it. The along came B with Jackie Wilson, the Spoonful and, best of all, "Crawdaddy Simone" - British R'n'B at it's greatest.

Difficult one, this. A is very 'greatest hits' and I do share the queaziness about Moby Dick; so I would be inclined towards B ... but I'm no fan of the Faces and only a couple really connect. So, its A for the Drake and Costello but only after much humming and hawing.

A is a bit played out and too familiar despite the never boring Heart of Glass and Rock & Roll. B's list equals these high spots with the Jackie Wilson and Lovin' Spoonful ( more often than not my favourite song ) and then makes me smile with the Shangri-Las ( can't help thinking of Derek and Clive - he's got a fucking stalk on him ) evens out the trad not mad Syndicats with the loose and funky Faces and triumphs with a non-canon Roxy track. A is solid but B reveals more to me

A probably has more that I identify with - but it has Moby Dick and, y'know......I just can't.......and then B has a Syndicats track which is a nice surprise so B

And I too am mystified by all this sudden Shangri-Las palaver. What gives?

Outrageous. Both very good. I'm leaning toward B, but I'll have to come back.

Isleys doing Seals and Crofts should be enough to clinch it for me, but B is so strong and I have the same problems with A as everyone else seems to have.

If the Shangs ever teamed up with LCD for a collaborative disc, the BCB collective would have a mass orgasm that would black out the internet for months. So let's be thankful this will probably not happen.

Anyway... two very good lists. I love that Isleys tune for certain, but I go for B because of The Impressions, Slade, Lou and Roxy choices (I dig "More Than This" even though it's pretty slick... great melody and really romantic atmosphere).
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.
