Beatles fans might have guessed this one. It’s finally official, the music catalogue of the greatest and most influential band of the rock era – The Beatles, is now available on Apple’s online music store, iTunes. The deal has finally been closed after a long wait for Apple Inc. as well as Beatles music fans who are using iTunes to buy heir favorite music.

Many sources have published the fact that delay was mainly due to disagreements between Apple Inc., Apple Corp. – which is the holding company for the Beatles, and record label EMI on the pricing of the Beatles music catalog.

However, it seems that Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple Inc. found his way around these disagreements and finally struck an agreeable deal to get the music of one his favorite bands, which saw its beginnings way back in 1957, on to his company’s digital music store which came into being 7 years ago but was lacking the Beatles’ feel until now.

This will also mark the first time that the band has ever made its music legally available for download in a digital format.

Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Star, and George Harrison can now be a part of your iTunes playlist with original tracks and albums at the click of a button without having to worry about piracy issues.

With 17 albums to choose from, interested buyers can preview songs and purchase individual albums for $12.99 each or have the whole collection set for $149.
