That's 8 tracks each, right?

Mixgroups. I'd put the relevant takes on extra tracks, set up mixgroups 
like "take 1", "take 2" etc, assign and then exclusive-solo the 
mixgroups with ctrl-alt-click. This gives you ABC with one click. 

Or playlists. *If* playlists were groupable. The way they work now you'd 
be up for a clickfest. Feature-request I guess.
