Beatles ‘Anthology’ to get iTunes release

Exclusive downloads to be available June 14

Continuing to milk a digital cash cow, iTunes will exclusively issue the Beatles’ three “Anthology” packages as remastered downloads on June 14.

Collections of Fab Four alternate takes and unissued material – originally released as a trio of two-CD sets in 1995-96 in conjunction with the “Anthology” TV series and book – will be issued as three iTunes albums (at $29.99) and a comprehensive 155-track digital set ($79.99). Individual tracks will be sold at Apple’s premium price of $1.29 each.

Release will mark the digital debuts of the singles “Free as a Bird” and “Real Love,” completed by George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Star from 1977 demos by John Lennon and originally issued on the first two “Anthology” volumes.

Pre-orders for the releases began Tuesday.

The Beatles have sold more than 8 million songs and 1.3 million albums on iTunes since group’s exclusive online pact with Apple commenced in November.
