After years and years and ... years the music of The Beatles' albums is now available to buy on iTunes.
The question of course how many will buy the digital files online. Yes, the re-released CD:s and box-sets seem to have a prosperous audience willing to buy the albums again and again, but how many on iTunes feel like paying £10.99/$12.99 for an album or 99 pence/$1.29 for a single song?
The Beatles on iTunes is an exclusive deal that will expire in 2011. And then we'll probably find The Beatles for sale in other digital online stores as well.
More here and here and here and ... here. (Amongst other places...)
Meanwhile Fox News fumbled the facts and stated The Beatles' place of origin as Manchester rather than Liverpool. Ooops!
