Well, I'm one of the few who could happily do with the Red, as I much prefer the early Beatles. Red is clunker-free, can't say that about the Blue in any form. But of course I've got both, although I don't remember off-hand if they were the first editions from Apple or the more recent remasters. Both are fine, I'd imagine. What I don't need is Giles Martin's remix of both. Just like I avoided the Yoko-approved remixes of John Lennon's solo catalog.
