Streaming is far more likely than a physical re-release. Am actually surprised that you cant stream it already, thought ever band under the sun were ahead of the Beatles - heck I though bands who hadn't existed yet signed up to streaming ahead of Apple. 

So was I, I have Spotify on my laptop but I don't go on it often. But I looked up the Wilburys yesterday because I couldn't be bothered going to the end of the house to get it and they weren't on it.

Its streaming and a cd/dvd reissue. Examiner report

Concord Bicycle Music announced in a press release April 18 it has entered into a worldwide licensing agreement with The Traveling Wilburys, the group featuring George Harrison , Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, to represent the band's entire catalog, including physical and digital reissues. And the company said one of the first benefits of the new agreement will be the group's albums being released to streaming services on June 3, also the same day their albums will be re-released in various configurations. “The Traveling Wilburys Collection,” originally released by Rhino, will be released by Concord Bicycle as a numbered limited edition as a 2-CD 1-DVD box set, a standard 2-CD 1-DVD package and a deluxe 180-gram vinyl box. The Wilburys' music will also be available as high-resolution downloads for the first time. Concord Bicycle Music announced a licensing agreement for music recorded by George Harrison and son Dhani in January.

I wonder if the content will change or if its fancy new packaging only since its a different company issuing the cd/dvd.

As if its a big deal Rihanna has passed the Beatles in spending more weeks at number one in the singles chart. 

Rihanna has overtaken The Beatles record for the total number of weeks spent at number one in the US.

The singer's latest hit Work has scored a ninth week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, giving her an overall tally of 60 weeks at number one with 14 songs.

That's one more week at number one than The Beatles' overall total.

She is now second on the list of all-time chart toppers, behind Mariah Carey, whose record is 79 weeks.

I read this wrong and thought this made her have the most, she's second to Mariah. Even less of a story. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

However, some of the songs counted as a number one for Rihanna are actually collaborations with other artists...

Mariah Carey also has some collaborations counted among her 79-week total...

None of the singles by The Beatles to reach the chart summit featured other artists. 

a-hard-days-night-paul-11

 Tho technically 'Get Back ' featured Billy Preston.

Bleck (for a lack of a better term). I personally don't understand how anyone could listen to any of that bloody annoying auto-tuned noise. Nobody who makes music like that should in any way surpass the Beatles in my opinion.

I dont care. Its the music that matters not some record that will in itself be broken further down the line; can't see many Rihanna songs being listened to 50 years down the line.

I understand totally where you are coming from WAC, i'll never seek out a Rihanna song as I find it to be ghastly music which no doubt has been heavily modified thru computers to make it in someway presentable current and suitable for radio play.

It's really remarkable isn't it? It doesn't sound as if it was made 50+ years ago at all. Somehow, the Beatles never seem to age. How many artists can say that? I agree with you; Rihanna's relevancy will wear out long before the Beatles ever will.

A few years back, when Paul McCartney was presented with The Gershwin Award by President Obama, the prez mentioned that between his time with The Beatles, Wings, solo, collaborations, etc... Macca has spent a cumulative 32 years at number 1 (combining singles and albums).

79 weeks is kinda cute, though. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

For those of you with The Beatles: Rock Band who haven't yet grabbed all the download content, advance warning that Harmonix are deleting them from the store on May 5 as their license to sell those 32 songs expires.

Unseen Beatles footage from 1965 Australia tour released

Rare footage of The Beatles larking around backstage during a tour of Australia has been released.

The never-before-seen 49-second clip of of George Harrison , Paul McCartney , John Lennon and Ringo Starr in a make-up studio ahead of a television performance was released by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA), who described it as "really rare".

The black-and-white silent film clip was shot on November 1, 1965, with an 8mm camera belonging to Australian dancer and make-up artist Dawn Swane, who was working at Granada TV in Manchester at that time.

Ignore the headline and the first line of the article. Sloppy work by The Telegraph.

There was no 1965 Australian tour.

The film was, as the article goes on to say, filmed in a dressing room at Granada TV Studios in Manchester, England, on the first day (1 November 1965) of the two day shoot for The Music of Lennon & McCartney TV special.

How the hell The Telegraph come up with that headline and opening line, when the article has the correct background to the footage in it, is beyond me.

It's been altered to the correct details, it now reads now

Rare footage of The Beatles larking around backstage has been released...

They haven't fixed the url tho (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/mus.....-released/) so you can still see they made a mess of it. Can only imagine one person noticed the film belonged to an Australian dancer and has been released in Australia and wrote the first line and the title and then wrote the rest of the article without changing the beginning; its a pretty pathetic example of journalism.

TRAVELS IN MUSIC is a podcast dedicated to sharing stories about music from all over the world.  They kick off their inaugural broadcast with a 35-minute interview with Mark Lewisohn.

This is Episode 1 of Travels in Music, and today I couldn’t be happier to be talking to the world’s leading Beatles historian, and the author of Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years, Mark Lewisohn.

In today’s show I talk to Mark about what made the Beatles so special, what it’s like to interview Paul McCartney , the challenges involved in writing the definitive history of the band, and why Liverpool, England, of all places had the world’s only teenage rock music scene in the 1950s.

In this episode you’ll also learn about:

  • The story behind the Beatles’ much celebrated Anthology project from an insider’s perspective

  • Why Liverpool? What was happening in postwar Liverpool that allowed the Beatles to form, grow, and eventually thrive?

  • How did traveling to India in 1968 change the Beatles?

From Lewisohn's facebook page:

Exceptionally good questions in this 35 minute podcast interview, giving me a welcome chance to say different things.

See the link above.
