    I'm not buying his PR written statement. After Sky News reported that Yoko Ono said the tracks were coming to iTunes, the article is removed. An hour later, Google removes the cache. There's a thread about it floating around.

    That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

    "The holdup is EMI’s conern about the prospects for piracy, Paul McCartney told The Observer."

    Oh, that's funny...I've had the mono and stereo box sets on my computer in FLAC form since late last week.

    If EMI's release is true, their heads are further up their asses than I thought...

    Yep. I've had the Lame encode version at 192k since last week. Going to get the FLAC's tonight.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to release the Remastered Catalog tomorrow, wait until the sales go down, then release them on iTunes?

    That's how the Movies work.
    Theaters, Video Sales, Video Rentals, etc..... alll with a time frame in-between.
