The Beatles release new iTunes Album Collection Celebrating 50th Anniversary

Fiftieth anniversary of Fab Four's first hit to be celebrated with 14-track career retrospective

This article is excerpted from the 
The Beatles in 1963
'I have drowned myself in the depth of their catalogue' … Dave Grohl on the Beatles. 
The Beatles are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their first hit with a new compilation of songs you probably already own. Tomorrow Never Knows, a "powerful collection … of the Beatles' most powerful rock songs", will be sold via iTunes.

The track-list is not exactly a showstopper. Opening with Revolution, closing with The End, it features 14 tracks from across the band's discography. Nothing here is new or unreleased – nothing is a demo or even a mono mix. Despite the breathless prose of the press release, the only interesting detail is the price: Tomorrow Never Knows costs about half of what it would take to purchase its individual songs.

There are no other plans to celebrate the five-decade mark, according to the LA Times. A spokeswoman confirmed that Tomorrow Never Knows will not be released on CD or vinyl.

Rock And Roll Detective comments: Regarding the last sentences of this article. Want to bet there will be something else special in store for Beatles fans in the coming years to celebrate the 50th?
