A tough one, here - two decent lists with plenty of intriguing picks, a couple of off-putting ones and a tad more personality than most. On the balance of it I think A is the one that has the better hits, but B puts up a good fight.

Close one. A wins a close one that i nearly abstained on. I thought i'd not heard of 'Angel in the Morning', but realised it must be 'Angel of the Morning'. That just clinches it.

To be fair I think both lists have really improved with their additional selections, some great picks from both -well done. Overall A has more flaws..Tom Petty may be the Robert Mitchum of rock n' roll but he was always going to sabotage this list at some point, and the bland Sundays track doesn't help matters.
