John Lennon’s catalog comes to iTunes
Let the speculation resume about when the full Beatles catalog is coming to iTunes. For the first time, 16 of John Lennon’s solo albums and exclusive videos from EMI Music made their digital debut on the service today (Aug. 14). Like all other EMI tracks, they will be available free of DRM in higher-quality files for $1.29.
The “Lennon Legend” and “Acoustic” albums are making their worldwide digital debuts as part of the initiative. And for a 30-day window, exclusive video content is bundled with the albums “John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band,” “Sometime in New York City,” “Walls and Bridges” and “Milk and Honey” and the collections “Anthology” and “Working Class Hero.”
The solo catalogs of two of Lennon’s Beatles bandmates — Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr — are available on iTunes already.
