I just discovered a Russian music site: AllofMP3.com It's incredibly cheap and legal in Russia. They pay royalties to the songwriter but not the record label. So instead of 99 cents a song, it's more like 10 cents. And they've got a lot of albums on offer. Pretty impressive.
I've been too paranoid and guilty to use p2p systems, so this is a godsend for me. I did some google research on the business and it seems to be okay.
So I just downloaded albums! Two Jack Johnson, an old Yes, Cracker, Camper Van Beethovan, Flaming Lips, Eno, a brand new Enya, and a bunch of 70's oldies. Oh, and the soundtrack to Serentity for my friend Steve. I've spent $14.67 so far.
