The Beatles Back On Top!
Remastered albums and Rock Band game set to top the charts...
Nearly half a century since they formed and a full 39 years since the band split, the Beatles were today set to top this week's charts with the release of The Beatles: Rock Band and a series of remastered albums.
The Beatles Rock Band, in which players follow on-screen cues to "play" a scaled down plastic guitar, bass or drum kit with the band, or else sing along, is the first game officially endorsed by the group. It was released this morning and is expected to be become a top seller.
Also on sale from today is a series of new versions of the band's albums. The stereo sound has been remastered on 14 albums from Please Please Me to Let It Be, plus a compilation of B-sides and alternate takes, for the first time since their original CD release in 1987.
To celebrate what has been dubbed as "Beatles Day", MTV will be playing out 16 specially sourced Beatles music videos. So if All You Need Is Love, catch a Yellow Submarine, and tune in to VH1, VH1 Classic and MTV Two today from 9pm for Beatles classics, including Penny Lane, I Am The Walrus, She Loves You and I Want To Hold Your Hand.
