  1. Is there anything good yet? Legal I mean? Someone stole my Motown collection
    and I have a bunch of soldering work to do and wouldn't mind some Marvin Gaye
    in the background. I refuse to use that Kazaa crap...
  2. I highly recommend www.listen.com. They just pulled a coup last week and
    even have the Stones (complete catalog). About the only thing not there yet
    is the Beatles. And they have some really obscure stuff, even the Robert
    Johnson complete works. It's $9.95/month unlimited streaming and I have to
    say the quality is practically indistinguishable from the CD. They have an
    ingenious way of delivering that high bandwidth stuff too. Read up about it
    on their site.

    I was just about to subscribe to this attractive service when they got
    bought by Real Networks, who puts out the biggest (or 2nd biggest) spy
    software available. I refuse to run any of their software. It will send to
    its own servers any and all information it can glean from your computer.

    Not recommended.

    Also, for many years Real Networks has been one of the largest
    mainslease spammers around. You could (presumably you still can) put
    in anyone's email address when prompted to download/install RealAudio
    or whatever, and sooner or later that email address will start to
    receive "RealSpam" advertising RealNetworks crap. mp3.com did the same
    thing with the addresses they collected for their downloads.
