Apple Announcement November 16: The Beatles On iTunes
Apple Announcement November 16: The Beatles On iTunes – Apple has announced on Tuesday morning the immediate sale of the Beatles’ impressive catalog which is composed of thirteen albums, four compilations via their online store iTunes .
Steve Jobs, was thrilled to reveal that this is the end of a “long and windy road” (a reference to the song called The Long and Winding Road, from the Let It Be album) due to the very long process it took to actually get the contract signed.
According to Rolling Stone Jobs tried to obtain Beatles’ discography in September of 2009 but he was told to wait because it was being remastered.
Before that, he tried in 2006, in 2007, and in 2008 but failed each time to reach an agreement to successfully get the band on iTunes.
This announcement/press conference was scheduled on a very special day – seeing November 16, is the day that the Beatles made their first appearance on American television.*Sponsored Links*
