fans — at least those who don’t limit their listening to vinyl — will get an early Christmas present this year, as the Fab Four finally come to streaming music services.

The Beatles were among the last holdouts. Others who belatedly took the plunge include
• Frank Zappa
, whose original catalogue began streaming in 2012
• Led Zeppelin
, who succumbed to Spotify in late 2013, and then went stateside earlier this year, and
• Taylor Swift
, whose 10-second Apple boycott ended in June.
That still leaves the Dave Clark 5
— as well as King Crimson
— but pretty much everyone else is now onboard.
