The most influential and beloved rock band in music history, The Beatles, is now available for the first time on iTunes.
The group's 13 legendary remastered studio albums with iTunes LPs, the two-volume "Past Masters" compilation and the classic Red and Blue collections are available for purchase and download on iTunes worldwide as either albums or individual songs. Fans can also get a special digital Beatles Box Set featuring the Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964 concert film, which captures the Beatles' very first US concert.
Not all bands get a worldwide announcement when added to iTunes:
"We're really excited to bring the Beatles' music to iTunes," said Sir Paul McCartney. "It's fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around."
Ringo Starr's quote was better: "I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes", he said. "At last, if you want it now - you can get it now - The Beatles from Liverpool to now! Peace and Love, Ringo".
