Beatles, iTunes come together

Nov 16 2010 19:20

San Francisco - The Beatles finally came to iTunes on Tuesday.

"We love the Beatles and are honored and thrilled to welcome them to iTunes," Apple chief executive Steve Jobs said in a statement. "It has been a long and winding road to get here."

Beatles albums were selling in Apple's online entertainment store for between $12.99 and $19.99 or $1.29 a song.

Fans could also purchase a comprehensive box set of their music for $149.

The appearance of the iconic British pop group on iTunes has been the subject of years of tortuous negotiations between Apple, representatives of the Beatles and their record label EMI Group.

"We're really excited to bring the Beatles' music to iTunes," said Paul McCartney, one of the two surviving members of the group.

"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."
