    Just been playing XTC 'Rag & Bone Buffet' odds and sods album and realised how much I still loved a lot of these tracks ('Blame The Weather' still sounds wonderful).

    So I got to thinking B-Sides...What are your favourites?

    Hi,

    One of my faves is One Step Beyond by Prince Buster. The B side of Al Capone.



    Another is Saturday Night Sunday Morning by the Specials, the (one of songs on) B side of Ghost Town.

    Peter And The Pets B side of Another Girl Another Planet- The Only Ones.
    Also No Fun (I think) on the other side of Pretty Vacant. Which reminds me I lost all my singles when between gaffs. I lent my jukebox to a mate who 'lost' it. Never got to the bottom of it and he's gone mad now.

    Maximum Joy - Silent Street (B side to Stretch). A typical Bristolian mix of Jazz and Dub.

    Sweet's 'Hell Raiser' has an amazing b-side in the guise of 'Burning' with the highlight being a fantastic guitar solo, as such I used to slow it down (to 17 rpm?) so that I could try and copy the licks!!
