They waited a long, long time for this. I think that I already have all of the Beatles songs that I want.
I wish them luck though,...........
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Hmm I can see a conversation like this taking place somewhere.
older adult: So you gonna buy Beatles songs from ituens now?
kid/teen: The who?
older adult: No The Beatles..
Seriously though most of the folks who wanted the entire Beatles Collection probably just bought the CDs when the big collection came out and rip them or got one of those young whippersnappers to do it for them if appropriate.
digitaldd:most of the folks who wanted the entire Beatles Collection probably just bought the CDs
Ha-Ha! I bought the Beatles' 45 rpm records,............then the 33RPM's...........then the four track tapes,...........then the 8 tracks,............Next it was Cassettes,............then the CD's.
And I still have the CD's,..............they're all ripped and stored too.
