I'll take A which just seems to align itself with my own tastes more often than B.

These are two amazingly robust lists - well done to both contestants. Sadly one of them will be eliminated which is really hard as both are worthy finalists.

List A is very consistent although I am not too keen on the Renaissance selection and the Strawbs track is relatively weak.

That said there is plenty of absolute gems to complete the list. It is unfortunate McLaughlin's name was mistyped but I would never hold that against anybody. A little sloppy though.

Now, the final five are stunning choices!!! The 'Ash track and Edgar's Frankenstein are superb!!

Well done A an amazing list.

Now to B.

The first 10 selections easily match A's and may have the edge. Bebop Deluxe was a brave choice and somewhat odd. Likewise Godley & Creme - who are not my faves. However, The mighty If, VdGG and M&G give the list a delightful touch of class.

What gives B's list a heavyweight punch of pure inspiration is the opening track of Audience's debut, Ensemble Ambrosius' Zappa's Album and a brilliant choice of Nick Mason's [a very underrated LP] - brilliance which I never would have thought of in a month of Sundays.

Despite A's amazing last 5, B's is better. Inspirational.

That said, A has nothing therein that is not top-notch class for my old ears.

So with great regret to B, whose whole list is stunning

I go for:

I'm late with my vote for B not that it would have turned the tide. Fuchsia!
