Andy Ihnatko on The Beatles and iTunes

Andy Ihnatko:

Therefore (so my logic goes): there’s no upside to putting these tracks on iTunes on the 9th. All you’re doing is giving consumers the option of buying only the “White Album” tracks they like, instead of making them spring for the whole uneven pile.

My thoughts exactly. I say they debut the remasters on physical media now, reap the profits, then release download versions six months or so from now.

But maybe that’s just because I’m not attending this event and I’ll shit myself if I miss out on Paul and Ringo appearing and playing together.
