  1. DAMN !!!! – I was hoping it was going to be a DVD version of the 1 album – all the promo films !!!!

  2. I think it’s weird that The Beatles’ music hasn’t been available already on streaming sites, granted, it is of little hassle as I’m sure many already have their music in multiple mediums already.
