Too close at first view. Gonna have to listen deeper. Both pretty attractive looking on the surface.

I'm having trouble deciding too.

Dammit, why must my two favorite remaining lists go up against each other? Both falter slightly in the new five, but I really want to reward B for producing so many unheard songs that reward the effort of clicking on them. With serious apologies to A- this is the only list that could've beaten you, probably. (Well, that past-their-prime Ramones track didn't help...)

Not all of B's left-field picks work, but overall it's the more invigorating listen.

Another one I'll need to come back to. Very little in these.

EDIT: Went in the end for the low hanging fruit of A - but there's plenty of archive stuff to enjoy there as well (e.g. the Baby Face Willette, Sandford Clark selections - new to me both.

There's not much in B apart from the Beefheart that I consider great.

A, on the other hand, is a classy list - smart selections just a step off the beaten track. The Lee H is new to me, and it's a cracker. Well done, A! Well done!

I can't do a listen off anymore -- too little time. I'll have to abstain.

Can't believe I'm voting against Elmore but A has pulled out a fantastic new five. Great Beefheart choice and one of Dylan's finest .

B places his trust in the lure of the less familiar. A prefers to pick some tasty low hanging fruit. Yumm.
