The Beatles USB is one blast from the past that perfectly integrates into the technology age flawlessly, and having John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Star, and George Harrison in the palm of your hand is quite a thrill !! The Beatles music is the biggest musical phenomenon of the 20th century, and is credited with inventing pop music as we know it. The width and depth of the cultural influence of the Beatles music is unmatched by any other musical act in history, with only Elvis Presley’s emergence in the mid 1950′s coming even remotely close to the level of critical acclaim and commercial success that the Beatles experienced. They Beatles have a huge following to this day, and the public at large cannot get enough of the Fab Four, ensuring that their music and memorabilia are just as hot today as they were in the late 60′s.

The Beatles were also highly influential in fashion and culture as was evidenced in the mop-top haircuts that were mimicked world wide, as well as general attitudes among youth as they promoted an ‘independent teenager’ attitude, strongly shaping the views and attitudes of their fans. The Beatles were more than just a passing fad, and their notoriety and fame are as powerful a presence in today’s culture as ever. Their music is still played, sold, and downloaded millions of times each day world wide.

The Beatles released 12 albums in their 10 years on top, almost all of them are widely critically acclaimed. The innovatively designed, apple shaped USB drive comes pre-loaded with the re-mastered and critically acclaimed audio for The Beatles fourteen stereo titles, and also the re-mastered CD visual components which include thirteen mini documentaries, replications of the original UK album art, expanded liner notes, and rare photos.
