Why go for live versions of absolute classics, B? Some good stuff there but I've never seen the Feelies as anything other than irritants. And The Go-Betweens bore me to tears.

A is nearly all good.

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

Both of these lists just look stultifyingly dull. It's meat and praters stuff, and I can't be arsed with it.
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.

A is a great eccentric list. For the juxtaposition of The White Mandingos and Antlers alone it deserves to win.

List A:
Billy Jack - Curtis Mayfield - :D
Autograph - The Tears - :D
Harvest Moon - Neil Young - :mrgreen: I was kind of bored by Harvest Moon when it came out. Now it sounds great.
Know Your Product - The Saints - :D
Tammi Terrell - I Can't Believe You Love Me - :D
Warn a Brutha - White Mandingos - :mrgreen: Worth investigating.
Palace - The Antlers - At this point, it's too VH1 Adult Contemporary for me.
Fast Love - George Michael - RIP. He was my thing. To me, he was a guy who was never quite Marvin Gaye
Your Move - Yes - :D
Up In Heaven (Not Only Here) - The Clash - Kinda Clash-lite



List B:
Split Enz – Message to My Girl - I like Finn, but this is not one of his better songs.
Robert Wyatt – Stay Tuned - This may be a grower for me. If this list makes it, I'll take another crack at it.
Strait Jacket Fits – She Speeds - Doesn't click with me
The Lighthouse Keepers – Gargoyle - Nicely sinister :D
The Feelies – Crazy Rhythms - :mrgreen:
Stevie Nicks – Wild Heart - VH1: Behind the Music. At first I thought, who are those two nondescript bridesmaids?
Lou Reed – Street Hassle (Live Chicago 1978) - This is Lou's "Jungleland", isn't it? But it hindsight, not as good as I remembered. Still, a chilling O.D. story.
The Blue Nile – Soon (Laurel Canyon Mix) - :|
The Go-Betweens – Rock and Roll Friend - meh.
Nada Surf – Gold Sounds - :mrgreen: Nice tune!

A is a much stronger list.

B is well put-together and I could certainly listen to it, but I would be lying if I said it is all really to my taste. A mixes things up a bit better: there is imagination and heart and the odd bit of absolute bobbins there.

I think I know who both of these are, actually.

B.

"Message To My Girl", besides being brilliant, is also my wedding dance song. Although I admire the pick of "Fastlove" on A, the rest of the list couldn't sway my emotional attachment to the opener of B.

Match 15 A=19, B=13
A is the winner. A if you haven't already done so, please send me your next five tracks for Round 2.

B was mission. Sorry man.

Neil Finn songs are really not working for at least us?
