If you want to listen to the absolute best of The Beatles, iTunes is possibly the best place to go. Pretty soon, the already extensive collection will get even larger with the release of some material in digital form for the very first time. Live at the BBC Volume 1 and Volume 2 will be available to download from mid-November at $19.99 a piece.

Between March 1962 and June 1965, The Beatles became a familiar presence on BBC airwaves, performing more than 80 songs during dozens of appearances on national radio. The first compilation of these sessions, Live at the BBC – originally issued in 1994, but now available digitally for the first time – is joined by a previously unreleased second volume of music from this exhilarating period in the band's history.

iTunes famously finally got The Beatles' collection into the store back in 2010, and is something yet to be matched by digital music competitors. It's also not the first batch of BBC content to hit the store in recent weeks, with some previously lost episodes of Doctor Who being remastered and released to iTunes.
