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

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.
