Various music blogs & sites containing mp3 downloads

What you see here encompasses nearly all of my online music findings. I love music, all kinds, and my passion is finding new sources for new tunes to listen to.

Most of these, like the vinyl record blogs, offer music that you simply cannot find anywhere else. Obviously the blogs listed further down the page which distribute downloads of more recent CDs are coughdoingsoillegallycough. Download at your own discretion.
