New release CDs and Books deliver last minute Christmas gift ideas for fans of The Beatles

Hardly a year goes by without the release of new Beatles related material. Be they compilation albums, books, covers, gimmicks... it seems there's always something to keep fans of the iconic British band happy. At this point though, unless McCartney or Ringo bring out some new auto-biography, filled with never before known details, is there really anything new we can take from these releases? Probably not. But that doesn't stop them from coming out, and nor should it. With music as good as it was (and is) there's no reason we shouldn't continue to celebrate it - and creative minds continue to think of new ways to do so.

Our Most Anticipated Record Store Day 2013 Releases

That one last bastion of the music industry that refuses to die – the record store – is going through a bit of a revolution of late. Whether it be record stores that have embraced open artistic ventures like Melbourne’s Polyester, whose in-store performances are widely revered more than a bands night gig at a pub, or the likes of Poison City Records in Fitzroy, who have expanded their merchandise catalogue to skateboarding gear such as boards, wheels and t-shirts, the humble record store is now far more than a place to buy music.

But of course, they still are that gateway to the heaven of actual, tangible forms of music, the sort people are willing to pay for. In celebration of the tangible, this upcoming Record Store Day (RSD) will have record stores in your town chock full of many wonderful limited tangible musical goodies that you can get your hands on.

So here’s a quick list of some of the more anticipated finds around Australia this Saturday:
