The Beatles And iTunes Finally Come Together
It’s been a long and winding road, but after years of anticipation, and bickering (er…negotiation), [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm] have finally made it onto iTunes. As of Tuesday, November 17, 2010, Beatles fans can now download their beloved band’s entire catalog digitally, via the ‘other’ Apple–that is, iTunes.
According to a press announcement from EMI, the band’s longtime label, the available Beatles download content includes:
* The Beatles’ 13 legendary remastered studio albums
* The two-volume “Past Masters” compilation and the classic “Red” and “Blue” collections
* A special digital “Beatles Stereo Box Set” containing the 13 remastered studio albums as iTunes LPs with all mini-documentaries, “Past Masters,” and the “Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964” concert film, a worldwide iTunes exclusive which captures the Beatles’ very first US concert in its entirety.
* The option to download individual songs from all the albums and the box set
In addition, Beatles fans can stream and view the “Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964” concert film from iTunes for free until December 31 2010.
