After years of wrangling with Apple, Paul McCartney, Ring Starr, and John Lennon and George Harrison’s families have agreed to sell The Beatles’ back catalogue on iTunes.
It’s the Beatles Box Set which is the big one. With 256 songs, documentaries and other videos (including their first-ever US concert), it costs $259 in the Australia iTunes Store, which must be the priciest purchase on iTunes. Other albums, including Help!, Abbey Road and my favourite the Magical Mystery Tour, cost $20.99, with the songs available for individual purchase at $2.19.
It’s no Yellow Submarine iPod, but it’s official—The Beatles (are) For Sale. [iTunes]
