Any public archives for legal mp3 files?

Every once in awhile I find sites that have legal collections of mp3 files -- usually public performances, or just older music.  I thought maybe you'd be interested...

http://www.subrosa.arbre.us/SubRosaMusicArchive.html
http://theremin.music.uiowa.edu/MIS.html
http://greatinstrumentaldownloads.com/f … loads.html

Feel free to post your own links to legal archives...but PLEASE don't post any links to illegal sites!  Thanks!

p.s.  By the way...many of you probably aren't aware of the SHN (Shorten) format.  You can find TONS of great-quality songs in SHN (and now FLA/FLAC) format on the web -- often very high quality live-performance recordings.  And MP3-Boss now supports both SHN and FLA/FLAC!
You can find a bunch of SHN & FLAC files here:

Re: Any public archives for legal mp3 files?

I found a great piece of software that makes it EASY to download ALL the mp3 (or SHN) files that are on a page:

PIMPFISH

PimpFish is definitely worth the price, but lets you get a free trial version too.  The registered version ($30) adds a few features that make things easier (e.g., you can specify the download directory), but give the trial version a try.

Once you've installed PimpFish, just click the down-arrow next to "Grab!" on the toolbar and click "Grab any file type on this page..." -- type in MP3 or SHN ... and PimpFish starts downloading ALL the files.  No more clicking & clicking!

I like PimpFish so much ... that I decided to buy a copy for myself and become an affiliate ... so if you buy it through the link above, you'll be helping to support MP3-Boss development too.

Let me know what you think!

I use bearshare though I found the links above helpful (especially the classical ones which are hard to find).

I decided to stop downloading from bearshare since they've given me lots of viruses.

I still download music from Frostwire but thanks for those links

I also used limewire to download my favorite musics. But thanks for the information. This is very helpful to me so I can download more musics.

VEVO is good for downloading MP3 songs.
