The soul of Lyndell and Duke, the unabashed pop rush of that Motown-Blondie-AC/DC run, the addition of NERD ... definitely A.

close match. a gets votes for:

Elvis C, The Smiths , Smokey, House of Love, Blondie, AC/DC and Jackie Wilson

B gets votes for

The Fall, Ig, The Smiths, Stardust, Burning Spear, Zep and Camper van

a tie, but A just feels more in tune with me and includes two songs I'm not bothered about by bands I like Suede and ZZ Top.

So A squeeks in there

Neither of these really hits me, but doing a track-by-track, I find that I like more on B.

Misty Mountain Hop was all it took, though it seems that Mr. B is in danger of giving into his worst inclinations.

B by about 2 3/4 lengths. Nice Polyphonic Spree choice.

Young Bride is a great song. Better list by a reasonable distance.

I'm not sure how B has got this far, but I'm happy to keep it going.
