A new TV commercial for iTunes and The Beatles features an animation of 12 of the band’s album covers. It is drawing some minor criticism from fans of vinyl LPs who believe that digital music has put an end to the kind of cover art that is being used to promote it in this case. The video was uploaded to YouTube a few days ago and has received 3/4 of a million views with about 10 to 1 liking it. The animation is accompanied by The Beatles classic Magical Mystery Tour.
The AAX gallery includes over 800 scans and edited versions of the classic album covers and singles sleeves of The Beatles, including Magical Mystery Tour (right) and many rarities.
