But Lennon’s post Beatle music is now being made available online. EMI Music’s Parlophone and Capitol labels announced that Lennon’s entire solo catalog will be offered for download on a variety of online music services.
The record company made the first album for downloading, the new greatest hits collection Working Class Hero, available on November 7th, and the plan calls for all of Lennon’s solo works to be made available by December 5th in the U.K. and December 6th in the U.S.
“Very few artists in modern times have made such an important cultural impact as John Lennon,” EMI Music Vice Chairman David Munns said in a statement announcing the arrangement. “We are delighted that his fans around the globe will be given such immediate access to his music now that they are available for download and soon, for mobile.”
