Beatles Rarities Set to Hit iTunes Today

Beatles Rarities Set to Hit iTunes Today
The Beatles recently announced plans to issue all of their U.S. albums in one hefty vinyl box set, but now the band will treat fans to a different sort of release, as they are drop a large batch of rarities on iTunes today (December 17).

As recently reported, the influential group are set to deliver 59 tracks from 1963 in a set called The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963.

The recordings turn 50 years old in 2014, which means that, in accordance with European Union copyright laws, they'll have their copyright expire if they're not officially released. If they are released, however, the copyright stretches to 70 years.

The 59-track release includes 15 studio outtakes and 44 live BBC recordings. A tracklisting is available below.

UPDATE: If you tried to buy the release today and had no luck, it may be because it was only available to buy for a few hours and apparently only in a few select countries.
