The Beatles appear early on iTunes

Tracks available to buy 20 minutes prior to launch

Albums and tracks by The Beatles are now available through iTunes.

The tracks first appeared on iTunes Preview 20 minutes before Apple's excepted announcement, dubbed 'tomorrow'. They were then made available through the store around 10 minutes before the annoucement.

A wide range of albums are on sale, including The Beatles Box Set, Please Please Me, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band, and more. Single tracks are priced at 99p, while albums are priced from £10.99.

A short biography sums up the Beatles, claiming that their story is "mythic" and that "it's difficult to summarise their career without restating cliches".
