And 2 more that I play very regularly:

It would now be too much to expect Mandrake to be a Cardiff band. Drummer Tommy Reilly had a shop on Broadway nr Splott called 'Record Browser' and related the tale how he found his kit dumped outside his house which indicated to him that his tenure in Love Sculpture was up. I think he missed out on success with Grease band as well.

here's a few -

Grace Jones thought so too...

The A side a Fallabilly by Numbers cover of a Big Bopper song ...the B side is as close as you'll get to a perfect AOR rock tune from the Mighty ones...

All the first three X Ray Spex had equally memorable B's...Yamma Yamma Yamma

And Derry's finest ode to 'Work Rest and Play'

this or the A side.... hmmm... I can't choose?

"Those Were The Days" by Cream, flip side of "White Room," is very fine indeed. Also "Blue" by Heavy Jelly, flip of "I Keep Singing That Same Old Song" on Island, is rather wonderful.

OMD had some corking B sides, often as good as the A side :-

Sacred Heart/Souvenir
The Romance of the Telescope/Joan of Arc
Concrete Hands/So in Love

and some that were better than the A side imho :-

Wrapup/Never Turn Away
Firegun/La Femme Accident
Sugar Tax/Then You Turn Away

other decent tracks were available on the 10 and 12 inch versions.

Sounds Incorporated - Detroit
The Astronauts - Kuk
Ten Years After - I'm Coming Home
Love Sculpture - Farendole
Penny Peeps - Model Village
Lou Reizner - Get A Bloomin' Move On
Mungo Jerry - Dust Pneumonia Blues
Faron's Flamingos - See If She Cares

I know it won't float everybody's boat, but this basic driving boogie-woogie with home-made percussion and stabs of slide guitar gets me going every time. It's the 'B' side of Terry Dactyl & The Dinosaurs' mini-hit 'On A Saturday Night', and it shows what they were like when (as Brett Marvin & The Thunderbolts) they weren't trying to make hit records.

The Prisoner by The Clash has already been mentioned.
This one is an almost laughably simple instrumental, yet absolutely beguiling (IMO):

'Queen Victoria... a large, black, slug - in Piccadilly, Manchester':

Classic Joe Jackson:

Another instrumental (Go For It):

....couldn't resist posting these two gems, written, arranged and produced by Brian Wilson, when aged 22..... No wonder Paul McCartney was a big fan, and ultimately a friend to Brian, both born within 4 days of each other, June 1942.

co-written with Mike Love

...a portent of what was to come. If anyone out there gets a chance to hear the unofficial recordings "Unsurpassed Masters".....
Unsurpassed Masters Vol. 7 (1964) The Alternate "Today" Album, Vol. 1
Unsurpassed Masters Vol. 8 (1965) The Alternate "Today" Album, Vol. 2 ,

you can here the original stereo versions, which differ quite a bit from the released takes, although recently released digital remasters by Capitol have come fairly close. Get Some!!

Yankee....Just think of the horrors Capitol had when they received Brian's track running order of "Beach Boys Today"...He put all the upbeat songs on side one, and all the slow introspective tracks on side two ....little did they know they would be getting one more "standard" album in the future (Summer Days...)....and then all hell breaks loose..........Great!........John
