This is my favorite LEGAL Bittorrent Music Tracker here You can download uncompressed CD quality music. It's in the FLAC (free lossless audio codec) format. The VLC media player is a free media player that will play these files. You will find it here.

I would add that the most recent trojan infection out there is passed through infected mp3 files and codecs,

Thanks Garmanma,
A very good point indeed. And certainly worth expanding on.

Any file downloaded from the internet could be infected with malware. Extreme caution should taken when any file is downloaded regardless of the source. In particular Peer-to-peer (P2P) filesharing is notoriously dangerous. Sharing copyrighted material is illegal and should be discouraged. In fact many of those seeking help here on this forum have been infected by these methods. There are artists that approve filesharing of their material. Although it is legal it is still dangerous. This link that I provided above is a trade friendly LEGAL site.

The best and safest practice is to avoid filesharing entirely.

If you choose to fileshare despite the warnings then make certain you use a "safe" client. Just because the client is safe does not mean the file you download from it is clean!!

I enjoy live music and do participate in LEGAL filesharing on the trade friendly site I listed above using a "safe" bitorrent client. This is the protocol I follow and it is certainly NOT foolproof.

I run my browser, bitorrent client, and a dedicated external drive Sandboxed. After the file has downloaded into my sandbox (outside of my OS) I upload the file to Virustotal, run it through AVG8 and MBAM then store it on my dedicated live music external drive. I then delete the Sandbox the file is contained within. It never sees my OS!!!!

Again, the best approach is to avoid filesharing altogether!!

Happy computing,
T
