Nice choices again.

I think B edges it 'cos there are a handful (Love, SFA, Springfield, Can) I would die for, and I can't say the same for anything in A's list - as good as it is overall.

List A:
Ballad of a Thin Man – Bob Dylan - Nice live clip! Bob and his band are really on fire!
Xmas Trip – Run On - :D Love it!
Wakafrika – Manu Dibango - Splendid! :D
Emusified – Rex Gravin and the Mighty Carvers - :mrgreen:
Great Jones Street – Luna - 8-)
This Time Tomorrow – The Kinks - :D Ray Davies. Such a great songwriter. Too bad his voice keeps me from listening to the Kinks as often as I ought to.
Underwear – Pulp - :D A band I've neglected to explore in depth for far too long.
Feed the Tree – Belly - :D
Broken Record – The Creamers - The first merely 'meh' track on this list.
Sunstroke/Mind Train – Sun Dial - Good for driving at night, I imagine. Has some adrenaline-drenched moments. 8-)


List B:
Elvis Presley- King Creole - :D A performance clip. Both these lists are working from the same playbook.
Ann Peebles- I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down - 8-)
Love- Seven and Seven Is - :mrgreen: Mr. Green is reserved for the ones that really light me up.
Tribe Called Quest- We The People - 8-) I wish I could explain why some hip-hop hits me just right and some doesn't. I think it's the fuzz bass and soft piano here.
Lee Perry & The Upsetters- Croaking Lizard - The Indescribable Super Ape! 8-)
Can- Vitamin C - 8-) They were so far ahead of their time.
Super Furry Animals- Ice Hockey Hair - Had to listen to this on Spotify. :mrgreen:
Donna Summer- State of Independence - This is the clunker so far. I'd prefer her MacArthur Park over this.
John Holt & the Paragons- I've Got to Get Away (Man Next Door) - :D
Buffalo Springfield- Expecting to Fly - :D

Hmmm...two great lists. Let me think and consider...

Neither exactly reaching out for the shock of the new here. List A has apparently put a little more thought in, and that Luna track is surprisingly lovely.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Two very good lists, but B has more of a sense of "BCB-approved ecelecticism." Even though A takes a sizable dip in the middle, it goes to more interesting places. (Really dig that Sun Dial - all several hours of it! :D )

B is solid and I would enjoy it as a playlist. In fact I did enjoy it as a playlist when it was entered four times in the BCB Cup 2007, twice in 2008 and again in 2010, 2011 and 2014.
A reaches out more, though it doesn't always grab hold of something. I liked Rex Garvin and the Creamers, though not so much Run On.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

B, but I like the Belly on A though.

Match 13, A=12, B=23
B is the winner. B if you haven't already done so, please send me your next five tracks for Round 2.

A was Ray K. Sorry Ray.
