Question Best Sites For Music Downloads?

Hi just wondered if anyone had some recommendations for legal MP3 download sites, the ones suitable for drag & drop & will play on most players ?

Thx

This site, and others like it, continue to be allowed to trade and you can still use your card to buy.

Articles recently said that authorities would not hunt down anybody who downloaded from such sites but would concentrate their efforts on peer to peer file sharing.

**get's on soapbox**

I use this type of site for myself and dont share or otherwise use P2P. Everybody has their own view on such matters. Mine is that I have been getting ripped off by various people involved with music for most of my life, from paying well over the odds for records and CD's when I was younger, to having to pay a booking fee to buy a ticket to watch an artist now, to paying 4.00 if I want a pint at a concert - the list is endless. Nobody does anything about these extortionate add ons, yet the general public is forced to consider if they are a criminal if they consider paying a few pence for a downloaded music track.

I would hope that my ISP would prevent access to illegal web sites. A website must be easier to block access to than P2P - so, if it is illegal why aren't they blocking them? If the authorities come out and say categorically that this is illegal, then I will stop.

Others will point out the potential impact on the artist and music in general. My view is that the music industry has had its own way for so long and something has to change.
