Looks like the “day we’ll never forget” is the Beatles collection now being available on iTunes. The Apple homepage has been updated to show a full screen image of the Beatles, and and accompanying press release states:

“Apple Corps, EMI and Apple today announced that the Beatles, the most influential and beloved rock band in music history, are now available for the first time on the iTunes Store (www.itunes.com). Starting today, the group’s 13 legendary remastered studio albums with iTunes LPs, the two-volume “Past Masters” compilation and the classic “Red” and “Blue” collections are available for purchase and download on iTunes worldwide as either albums or individual songs. Fans can also get a special digital “Beatles Box Set” featuring the “Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964” concert film, a worldwide iTunes exclusive which captures the Beatles’ very first US concert.”

At least that’s one constantly re-occurring rumour that can finally be put to rest…
