ITunes unleashes The Beatles' "1" - a one-stop shop for hits 

Tired of cherry picking your favorite Beatles songs from various sources on iTunes?

Here’s the perfect solution for everyone who doesn’t want to dig catalog-deep: Tuesday, iTunes unleashes The Beatles’ “1,” the best-selling album of the past decade, with the remastered physical version arriving on Sept. 13.

The album collects all of the Fab Four’s #1 singles from 1964 to 1970 -- songs that topped the charts on the U.K.’s Record Retailer and America’s counterpart, Billboard Magazine’s Hot 100. Collectively on both charts, 17 hits spent a total of 128 weeks at #1. And to date, 30 million copies of “1” –- originally released in 2000 -- have been sold worldwide, 11.7 million in the States alone.

Great one-stop shopping, you have to agree.

Now that The Beatles have finally linked up with iTunes, digitally they’ve already moved more than 9 million songs and over 1.5 million albums. For more visit www.thebeatles.com.
