Some really good Albums on here for £3. I know some can be found cheaper and people will post individual good deals. As an assortment of Albums there really are some bargains to be had!

Not voting against this but remember that with a lot of these, you can buy them as physical CDs second hand for a bit cheaper (delivered) and rip them to high quality in a few minutes.

It is more fuss but you also have a physical product that you could resell if, for example, it turned out you didn't like what you bought. AFAIK, there's no way to legally resell a bought MP3 as their licenses are usually non-transferable.

And to re-sell a CD that you ripped is the same as downloading the album free via a torrent.

Both are stealing!

I very carefully didn't say you should do that. Ripping a CD, listening to those MP3s, deciding it's rubbish and reselling the CD is not stealing if you don't own the digital copy any more either... If you didn't like it, why on earth would you keep the copy?

You're right in that you can keep unlicensed copies but you're not allowed to and, once again, this isn't why I'm saying CDs are better. They're cheaper second hand and they give you a get-out if you accidentally buy crap music.

I've never been a fan of paying for a digital download personally, especially the full priced ones. I much prefer to buy the 'physical' copy and transfer it to mp3. However ...if you are a fan, then there are some excellent albums here at the right price. Hot from me.

I'm pretty sure you can legally make as many copies of the album as you wish for your own use as long as you own the original CD or have legally downloaded the MP3s.

Personally i also buy the CD cheaply and rip to my computer for convenience so i can listen while online and can copy to my phone memory card, etc.

£3 each for RATM's first album, Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt and Nas's Illmatic has got to be good though :)

I just wish Amazon would specify the bit rate so that you know what you're getting.

Nice find. Good idea for categorising music.

It's actually technically illegal to may ANY copy of a copyright work - even if it's for your own use (unlss of course you have the copyright owners express permission). A copyright work is never actually owned by you - all you actually own when you buy a CD is the physical media that the work is on. Technically all you are buying is a license to listen to the music on it - not the right to make any copies, even for your own use on your mp3 etc. Not sure about downloaded files, but I guess it would be pretty much the same.

Basically, the law in this field is a complete and total ass!

Based on my Amazon downloads, it ranges between 192 kbps (VBR), 256 kbps (CBR) and 320 kbps (VBR). This appears to depend heavily on the label and the source material.

Or you can just check out the tracks on youtube etc. first, they usually have samples of the songs on the store page as well which would suffice for most.

You can copy your own cd's all day long as long as they are personal use...

The important words in that article are "we will not pursue them". The law still hasn't been changed to make this legal.

To be honest,the article is a bit fatuous anyway, in that the media companies don't have the resources to take the millions (billions?) of people who own a computer and MP3 player to court for copyright abuse, so all they were doing is publicly admitting that they'd turn a blind eye - something they'd been doing for years already!

Anyone remember the "home taping is killing music" campaign from the 70s?...........
