iTunes adds Ringo tracks
Apple's iTunes Store today will begin selling digital copies of Ringo Starr's post-Beatles EMI catalog, marking the third Beetle band member to release music via the digital music realm. Ringo's tracks come to iTunes after solo offerings from Paul McCartney and John Lennon, both of which were recently added to Apple's online offerings. Ringo's addition to iTunes accompanies a new compilation CD from the Beatles drummer to promote online sales, according to BloggingStocks. Industry watchers are hoping to see the Beatles catalog itself released online by early 2008, but music giant EMI -- which holds the rights to those works -- has yet to offer a public decision on the matter.
