old tunes..........free ?

  Dasmad 22:20 01 Jun 2008

I've been told that I can find and download old music free or at nominal cost to replace vinyl and cassette music without the hassle of digitising..... but have not been able to locate any really useable sites as yet. itunes seems to drive you towards whole albumsat nearly £1 a track, when you probably only want to get a few tracks from any one disk.

can somebody give me the lowdown on this pls. ?

try click here , while it is not a 'downloadable site, it plays a good range of music, which if you were able could be recorded to your computer.

Ooops, Sorry, Forgot the link click here

I took a look at WE7 (without registering) but really didn't find the right stuff......doesn't seem to be much reference to older music......search for "Queen" for example, or Freddie Mercury did not even locate the famous rock group...."Nina Simone" similarly. any comment MCE2K5 ?

I use the free version of this:
click here
(just click the download button). It's available free from the Nero site as well, that's where mine came from.
There's a nag screen to upgrade but I can live with that. It works well and it's free and legal. ;-)

I use this site quite a lot:

click here

Pick a year and record to hard disc as it plays.

When finished I edit out any I don't want.
