I know so little about the first list, it has to be B, which has some fabulous tracks anyhow.
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.

Solid choices from both, but B is just veering towards my tastes a little more. That's one of Cohen's best songs and that sublime Talk Talk song is something that will win ties for me all night.

Two good lists but both with a hint of meat-and-potatoes about them. A's inclusion of Half Man Half Biscuit is just about charming enough to win this one.

If one were being churlish you could say B has gone for quite safe artists, but it's difficult to argue with the strength of songs here. Strong additional five.

Again - top quality. I'll come back later. I'm swayed by a couple of real blinders in A, but perhaps B is more consistent.

Tough on A which is still an exhilarating list but every one of B's additions is a total gem.

Three inspiring tracks on A ....
Hush Hush - Jimmy Reed
Who knows where the time goes? - Sandy Denny
Song of a Baker - Small Faces


... but B is packed solid with three quarters worth of priceless jewels.

Still can't see it with A, sorry. B, on the other hand, is clearly getting into their game. A cool first 10 is enhanced excellently with a well chosen next 5. Clear choice for me.

I am less enthusiastic about B's additions than the rest of you. And then there's Joni.

Ballsy John's Children choice for A. But there are more tracks that I like in B. Both quite excellent, though.

A for having less songs I don't like in it.
