OK, slightly deeper Guthrie cut, but I'm still going for the one that's new to me. (I do insist that it actually be good, which fortunately B is.)

Vid not available in the US, but I did find this live version.

A is the sort of thing where I pay attention to the lyrics, while B is just too Celtic.

Woody was a good lad and wrote some poignant lyrics.

A good communist (although never a member)

This is a good track - meaningful now methinks.

Onto B - shouldn't that be Mawkin:Causley…?

Tut, tut.

The track reminded me of a cross between The Men They Couldn't Hang and The Oyster Band (later Oysterband)

Too DC of the aforementioned - sorry

So, A has it

A has it

B. Its lively, modern and not too reverent to the past.

A better choice of Guthrie cut (although I hope this isn't going to degenerate into the 'Crackly recordings of dead singers cup).

Versus Mawkin Causley, who I have seen a number of times and never fail to entertain. Unfortunately I don't think this is one of their better songs, although in some of the rounds I would have voted for it in preference to either of the competitors.

Two Woodysin a row ! A less obvious pick, and B didn't really connect. I kept thinking poor man's Bellowhead

A better Woody pick, it's one of his finest songs, showing how to write a polemic but making it fun and bouncy. Which sounds like a specialist magazine.

Not sure about this Macauley Culkin number at all. It's all too wholesome and well recorded, there's no grit and gristle, like One Direction doing a Dubliners tribute album. Something about it really rubs me up the wrong way.

I'll take the Woody track here, I prefer it to the one in the previous round which for all its worthy importance is not a particularly great tune.

I had to find a live version of B as the clip would not play. It was fairly upbeat and bouncy but not something I'd want to revisit.

A - better Woody song love the tone. Love the lyrics.

B - had to go to their website - like the up beat and guitar but somewhere in the middle it gets a little annoying.

B is ok, but I prefer this Woody to it.

Oh, another Woody tune, a tad less less obvious.

But I do love Causley's voice a lot and the arrangement is wonderful.

I would like B to be a bit more out there in vocal, it's very polite.
Thrown up against the grit of the master, it falls well short.

A - A lesser Woody than This Land in my view, although do love the wheezy harmonica. There's a dissonance between the relentless misery of the lyrics and the jaunty tune that I find quite affecting, too. 6 / 10
B - Never heard of this guy, and apparently he's never heard that it is a sign of a true gentleman to know how to play a piano accordion, but refrain from doing so. Can't say I really enjoyed this one, I'm afraid. 4 / 10

Love the lyrics to A. B is not available so A wins by default.
