Both of these are new to me.

Not too sure about A to be honest, but B sounds great. I used to own Chocolate Kings which at the time I really rated. It's been many a year since I've heard it so don't know if time has been kind to it. Anyway I'll have a B please Ray!

Being a Kevin Ayers fan this should be an easy vote but it's proving to be not that simple. The chosen song is one of his more weird moments and, though quite interesting, I've never really connected with it and I would prefer nearly anything else from the same album. I'm not so familiar with PFM but that track was a delight with all its minstrelyness and flashes of Tull and Focus. The many parts hold together well in a very satisfying way so I have to make my apologies to Kevin and go with B

i have never heard either one.

i had to call up that ayers track elsewhere. i like it, forsooth, and i wanna hear more. but the PFM track is just soooo kathish. (reminds me of that strawbs synch listen for hero and heroine... it doesn't much matter to me how many decades it takes me to find something so kathish, the finding is a wondrous thing all the same.)

i can predict the future, ye know. here's how it's gonna go: i play that PFM track to reap. reap gets that crazy, adult ADHD, wide-eyed, plotting look in his eyen. within four minutes, reap has fount out everything there is to know about PFM. within an hour and a half, reap is ordering the very best versions of the very best PFM albums available. when the albums arrive, the musical explosion occurs. reap and i both forget we had ever *not* known the band. i babble about em on boards or on facebook like a skipping record for awhile. and so it goes happily until the next discovery.

okay, so i'm not really psychic. but i know a repeat pattern when i see it, and i know what's likely to cue it.

Great to hear old Kevin stepping away from his merry whimsical persona for once.A monster track. Great atmosphere and some sterling work from Mike Oldfield.The PFM track is irritating beyond belief - prog muzak at it's most banal.

Kevin for me. The PFM whilst having all the components, just seemed to lack an edge.

I generally struggle with Kevin Ayers, I find him too self-consciously quirky, too "look at me aren't I weird?". And that track was one of the worst of them. The PFM was fluff but it wins this battle. B

I'd choose Kevin Ayers against almost anything. Sorry B, you never had a chance.

Two superb track but PFM were such a great band.

A seminally robust track from a robustly seminal album.

PFM the second greatest Itlaian rock band of all time.

Sorry A

Unlucky A. That Kevin Ayers song is a corker.
