This morning, the Beatles catalog finally made its way to iTunes, and then quickly soared up the charts. According to Reuters, five of their classic albums entered iTunes’ Top 20 less than 24 hours after the band’s catalog was released for the first time on the world’s largest digital retailer.
The iTunes store is offering music by the Beatles as albums or individual songs.
Also available is a digital boxed set featuring a video recording of the group’s first U.S. concert in 1964 . The concert can be streamed for free from the site through the end of this year.
“We’re really excited to bring the Beatles’ music to iTunes,” Paul McCartney said in a statement. “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.”
