Looks like those youtube links are kinda finicky.

Both have a few bewildering selections. And despite the nice Jansch, Starr, and Everlys tunes, B seems a bit uninspired.

A it is then, mostly for the Petula B-side and my possible favorite La's song.

These are both great! Loved that All Night Workers on A - never heard of it before - and other gems there too (Hero Takes A Fall a personal favourite) but B is list of the comp so far. Aces.

Another tough draw, I reckon this may the strongest cup yet. Both have a lot to recommend them and I could happily listen to each without skipping too much. When it's this tight, I have to go with the list that is a little more surpising in introducing me to new things and that would be A here (liked that Holy Cow track amongst other new things). Can't dent that B is a crowd-pleaser though.

Great match. I like/love 15 of the 16 songs here (Wild Flag isn’t really doing it for me).

A, with apologies to B.

I like A here (despite the Petula and Alessi Bros. not being really to my tastes). Nice to hear that Bangles cut again. But B is stronger overall for me. 'Chicken Fat' is the best thing in there - smokin'!

Hey! This is more like it.

I really liked the Petula Clark one that kicked this tie off and there weren't too many missed beats after that. The Alessi Brothers are a step too far in the '70s pap revival, mind!

B is solid stuff, but the only risky personal choice there is Wild Flag, which isn't much cop. So I think A gets it.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
