Hard to go past a list with Mirror Blues in it (if you're me at least). Equally hard to vote against Dimmer. But my patriotic allegiances win.

I absolutely agree that that's a great P.Furs track, but the rest of A is a pretty tough listen. B is just a whole lot more listener-friendly.

luvvv the furs track, luvvv the small faces track. mwhaha. but it's a weird kinda thing. i like the rest just about evenly, on the song level, a groovy-to-kinda-mixed range. to be honest? if i picked the list i wanted to hear again, it would be....

While I really LOVE the Fur's Love My Way... A's other three tracks....not so much.

I also love the Small Faces track, and Nina and Moby Grape's Omaha.... so based on that B is better.

But....I really love the Furs.


Aaaaaagggggghhh!

Sorry B, but i really, really hate that JPSE track. It even made Nina sound tired afterwards. Love the Moby Grape but it's not enough to get the balance back.

An easy win for B- thanks to the great JPSE and Moby Grape choices!

23 Skidoo is the best extra on display here, so (in two lists of pretty slim pickings) A - but I really like that Dimmer track on B's list.

Sorry chaps, you're (nearly) all wrong:

The correct answer is A. It's got the pure magic that is "Love My Way" on it...

I really liked A's Plush song (I hadn't heard of them before).The 10 minute Died Pretty is too long, risky, IMO, for a play off & the sound isn't my taste. Love the Furs and The Waxwings.

The Moby Grape song in B's list is great. The Faces is an excellent choice but I didn't warm to the Dimmer song or Flex.(not my taste).

Difficult but A

A: liked the Died Pretty track + nice to hear that Psychedelic Furs track again. Not knocked out by the other 3.

B: hardy perennials in Small Faces and Nina, the Dimmer track was quite nice. Can take or leave JPS Exp, and Moby Grape mostly more respected than loved here.

I'll go for A, simply because the two I liked were less obvious choices.
