Very useful and interesting website, with lots of rare music to download. Try it!
http://free-loops.com is another good site.
free sound samples
MM, rename this post as "Free Samples Links".
Don't tell anyone about this but if you go to:
there's an ftp bin with more than 200 folders of music! each folder has anywhere from a couple of songs to hundreds more songs. there's songs of every genre!!!
I use this place to get old funk and soul music to rip samples from.
Beware the superbug...
