Fab Four all accounted for: Apple adds George Harrison catalog to iTunes Store

“Apple’s iTunes service this morning added an extensive catalogue of music from another Beatle, the late George Harrison,” Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK.

“The front page of the iTunes UK site now carries a pane advertising the addition of the artist’s catalogue: ‘George Harrison, catalogue and exclusives, just added,’ the pane declares,” Evans reports.

“The move to make George Harrison’s music available through iTunes means Apple’s service now offers music from all four Beatles: Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon and Harrison. The move also makes it far more likely that music from The Beatles will soon be made available through iTunes,” Evans reports.

  1. I mostly care about this because what’s holding digital release of Beatles music up is a massive remastering of the entire catalogue, which is long overdue. Most of the CDs that are out right now sound like crap, but the new versions will apparently be much better.
    Since I mostly buy music I really care about on CD, that normally wouldn’t affect me… except that the Beatles are an EMI artist. That means iTunes +, the only digital format that’s an exception to my CD rule.

  2. Well, I, for one, am glad to finally see The Travelling Wilbury’s on iTunes. It’s just too bad + versions aren’t offered. DRM is still a deal-killer for me, especially on a full album.

  3. Nathan is right. Apple Records is undoubtedly pulling together digital renditions that are going to change the way those 60’s recordings sound. Have any of you listened to the “Love” album from the Cirque d’Solei show? Beatles songs remixed by Sir George Martin (the fifth Beatle) sound all new and fantastic.
