The Beatles arrive on iTunes

iTunes representatives say more than 5 million tracks and more than 1 million albums by the Fab Four have been sold worldwide. Two million of those songs and 450,000 albums sold in the first week alone. Yes, The Beatles arrive on iTunes, at last.

Digital versions of such classic Beatles albums as "Abbey Road," "A Hard Day's Night," "Help!," "Magical Mystery Tour" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" were selling for $13 each, with double albums like the "White Album" going for $20.

Also available is a massive Beatles box set for $150, while individual tracks are selling for $1.30 each.

The Beatles, of course, were one of the last remaining digital music holdouts, and rumors of the Beatles arriving on iTunes (or going digital in any way whatsoever) have been circulating for years.

The Beatles catalog came to iTunes in mid-November, after a wait of more than 7 years since when the iTunes Store opened and began selling music.
