Amazon now has DRM-free MP3 store.
Amazon.com MP3 Downloads: Popular music, classical music, new releases and more, in MP3 format
Song selections are not as much as the CDs, but it's still a start.

Apparently, it works as long as you have an US mailing address...

Exclamation Legal!

Guys, please stick to legal websites only. Do not post links to illegal download websites.

Free MP3 downloads, especially of new music are (in most cases) illegal.
In rare cases, an artist may choose to release his/her music for free downloads. This would be a legal link, eg. recent free downloads offered by Coldplay.

Certain MP3 downloads from Audio Archive are out of their copyright period and, hence, legal.

Streaming music, eg. Yahoo! Music is legal.

Downloading copyrighted music from file sharing agents such as LimeWire is also illegal. Don't post those links here.

Thanks!

in this day and age of the interweb, when everything is available online 24X7, i just tune into the appropriate yahoo music or dozens of other good online music sites.
But yeah in the essence of keeping my collection going, I have started recording from tv using my archos dvr and also more recently I simply download from youtube, etc using realplayer.
Most of my collection has been videos (mpg, avi and now flv) since last 5 years, and i have video players all around me - phone/archos/ps3/laptop etc. So at home or in car or at work, if I need to listen to my collection, I just play the videos (mostly I am not watching em, just listening )

Well this is a play-song-on-demand type of internet-radio site, which does NOT offer download, and it seems to be legal!

Check it out : Grooveshark -- Listen to Free Music Online -- Internet Radio -- Free MP3 Streaming

No problems here in 2 years. However, what I practice - and would recommend to you - is to use a credit card with the lowest limit. Just to be on the safer side.

I tried HamaraCD.com from Saregama Ltd., - Make your own Customized CD with all your favorite Indian music.. they courier a custom made CD to your address. it costs Rs 275 for a 75 min CD. I was not very happy with some old records (which i presume they have converted from Tapes)

Cool. Thanks. I added the minimum amount and downloaded. The collection here seems quite decent.

Default Support an Indian inde artist - awesome blues/rock guitar album - free download

Hi buddies, while surfing the web I came across this awesome album called Nights in Shining Karma, that's free to download. It's by an Indian - Warren Mendonsa (Bombay boy and former lead guitarist of the band Zero). It's one of the loveliest guitar albums I have come across in quite a while.Never ever get tired listening to it. Download it, write him an appreciation mail and if possible support him as well. Cheers!

Check it out here --> BlackStratBlues --> music

Not to mention, download speeds are quick and they keep updating their collection. I once requested a song that wasn't there in their catalogue. Voila! Added the same week with a notification email sent out to me.

beatport rocks and trust me on that referring to my days when I was training to be a dj!Its the site where many pros go to for their floorbusters.. It's one of the best sites for great house/electro music. If you like some really good funky house mixes (the latest stuff) , all legal do pm me. Cheers.

Pranava999, this was very good stuff. I have already listened to this a couple of times since I downloaded it today and a shame that I wasn't aware of such a good guitarist.
