The additional 5 make the difference, and it ends up being a big gap.

Some fine tracks on A, but B is just a bit stronger for me.

I was just listening to Lady Friend (the song that is) last night, so, yes, that followed by Freak Scene will do it. As for Nutbush, that is only appropriate for drunken dances at the end of cheesy parties. A is marvelously idiosyncratic mind but I'm taking the comfortable couch option today.

"Jesus Was Way Cool?" Bizarro Cup material. A falls apart.

I enjoyed A's wacky new 5. Very amusing. An easy one for B. Good timing of the "Lady Friend" card.

There's not a great deal between them for me; the new additions don't sway me too much, although I like the Tarwater track.

On balance, there's still a little more I like in A

I'm indebted to Michael for bringing this particular stinker to my attention. I get to play a fair few of the links but this one slipped through the net. I don't condone voting against a list on tne basis of one song, but thankfully A has helped me out with the new 5, although in fairness the Trembling Bells is good and the Go Music Go is a likeable enough piece of pop froth. Elton Motello though is just lame and I actually couldn't keep a straight face listening to the Lou Christie. Some quality in there though (Karen Dalton, Lovin' Spoonful) but this one's clearly

Yikes. I probably would have picked A before the new five.
Trembling Bells was alright in A. Can't say much for the others.
B has a pretty good new five and I think it just overtook A.

It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.
