What is a good site to buy music?

Asked by lucillelucillelucille (32851points) 1 month ago

I am not interested in purchasing current music as much as the older stuff.
What site has that kind of variety?

Amazon is my go to music site. With a lot of their music, if you buy the CD, you get to download a free mp3 onto your computer. They also sell the mp3’s direct to customer if that’s your preference. I love music and l listen to a lot of different genres. From the newest to the most obscure, I seem to always find it on Amazon. My computer is loaded with mp3’s so I can copy onto a flash drive and play on my car stereo. That way I can keep a variety of music playing while driving. I can also have them playing through my Echo while working around my home

@SEKA-Thanks!
I use an MP3 with a portable speaker and like that very much.

If you don’t necessarily care about owning the music (the only way to really ensure that into perpetuity is through physical media), but just want access to it then Spotify is a fantastic service. $10/month will get you ad-free unlimited access to just about any music you can think of at pretty good quality.

I buy CDs from Goodwill for $1 or $2 and rip them to a PC.

Occasionally if I hear something good on the radio or see a mention on the web, I’ll buy it from Apple or Amazon or Google Play,, whichever is cheaper.

And very occasionally I go to the artist’s web site looking to buy wherever they direct me. That’s for young/new/small-time artists where I want them to get the maximum payout and I don’t mind spending a little more.

I was going to say Amazon, though it has been said. I have bought on them a few times. Maybe also itunes.

I went to iTunes recently to buy one that nobody else carries. I wasn’t allowed to buy until I agreed to pay a $10 monthly fee for streaming. I didn’t want to stream, I wanted to buy and go away. I’m not one of their biggest customers, so I guess they no longer want my business. So, I went to youtube and downloaded the audio for free. It was more trouble, still doable
