Beatles Music Now Available In Digital Format On USB

Music enthusiasts can now have a chance at savouring their favourite Beatles music in digital format, with their collection of 14 studio albums being made available on a USB drive from the official Beatles store.

The music will be available in an apple shape USB pen drive and it will feature the tracks in 320Kbps MP3 high quality format along with 24 bit FLAC format.

The drive which goes on sale on 7th December, which incidentally is priced at £200, will also include artwork and 13 mini documentaries which will allow fans to relieve the nostalgic moments associated with the fab four.

Only 30,000 units of the limited edition USB drives will be made available for purchase and interested buyers would have to get themselves registered with the official Beatles store to get a chance at purchasing the drive.

It is interesting to note that the music from The Beatles is officially not available at any major online music store including iTunes and the only place where it is available is in the US which is termed by many as a case of unauthorised sale and it may soon face legal action from record label EMI.
