Apple Records plans non-Beatle digital releases

Apple Records edged closer towards Beatles digital tracks on Tuesday with word that it would put up 15 remastered versions of its non-Beatles albums. The famous label plans an Internet launch on October 26 for early albums from well-known artists like Badfinger, Billy Preston and James Taylor, many of whom were working with one or more Beatles. Apple didn't say which stores would get the albums, but the individual Beatles' albums are already on iTunes and other major music stores.

The arrangement stops short of the Beatles themselves, who have signaled intentions to post an online version of its back catalog. At least Sir Paul McCartney has pointed the finger at EMI for the delays, but the complex distribution rights, the CD remastering project and other factors have made it difficult.

Currently, the closest to a digital store release has been a limited edition USB drive with MP3 and lossless versions of the entire Beatles catalog.
