Apple and Columbia Records have announced that AC/DC's complete catalog is available digitally for the first time - exclusively at the iTunes Store. The rock band had long been missing in action from online music stores, but now the entirety of the band's discography is available for digital purchase. All the music has been mastered for iTunes as well.
According to a press release, all sixteen of AC/DC's studio albums, along with four live albums and three compilations, are now on sale in the iTunes Store.
Two collections are available: The $100 Studio Collection encompasses all of AC/DC's 176 studio-recorded songs, complete with an iTunes LP featuring photos and liner notes. The $150 Complete Collection adds in rarities, demo tracks, the four live albums, and an iTunes LP with "a detailed essay and photos from the era", according to iTunes. The compilation includes 312 tracks.
The iTunes Store also now offers AC/DC ringtones.
The AC/DC announcement comes two years after another significant iTunes hold out finally arrived in the store.
