Both lists extend rather than expand the initial 10. Both hold genuine delights as well as more mundane choices so its really down to the highs in each. B certainly has, in Jackie Wilson and Lovin' Spoonful, my favourites on either list although A has strong Fall and Husker Du. I think it comes down to the feeling that A would be more of an oppressive listen, monochrome to (on the most part) Bs' lighter,brighter eclecticism

While I like plenty of things on B, I like more on A. And after struggling through Laura Nyro and Karen Dalton for the first time tonight, I'm in need of some innate conservatism! :P

Nina Simone - To Be Young, Gifted And Black
Can - I'm So Green
Scott Walker - Always Coming Back To You
Mission Of Burma - That's When I Reach For My Revolver
The Triffids - Lonely Stretch
Parliament - Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Of The Sucker)
John Coltrane - Giant Steps
Gram Parsons - Streets Of Baltimore
The Fall - Leave The Capital
Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
Jimi Hendrix - Wind Cries Mary
Television - See No Evil
Husker Du - Celebrated Summer
Go-betweens - Right Here, Right Now
PJ Harvey - 50 Foot Queenie


Wow, A is firing on all cylinders! Sure, it's largely a mix of well-worn classics and collectibles, but you can't deny Television at their most propulsive, Husker Du at their most euphoric, the astonishing sheets-of-sound that is Coltrane's "Giant Steps," Parliament givin' up the funk and Can's groovesome "I'm So Green." Wonderful stuff!
EDIT
And then I see that B has Jackie Wilson, Shangri-Las, Impressions, Martha Reeves and a Stereolab track I picked last year. Bugger this, I'm having to mull this one over again!

There is something about A. It says a lot in its favour that I'm willing to consider it, despite being the type of list which probably considers Husker Du to be its pop choice. Those are some fine tracks.

But it is too one-note isn't it? After scouting through that I just feel a lift when I see a list that contains the Impressions, Jackie Wilson, Martha Reeves and the Shangri-Las.

A would get a little boring over time but it knows what it likes and what it likes is great

A hits plenty of heavy stuff but none of it seems to hang together. I mean, I like most of all that stuff, but I'm definitely sticking with B

Another list greatly helped by its new 5 tracks - although I do hate voting against Jenny Ondioline.

B has some great stuff, but A has more of it.
