An explanation about digital music on the net

How to download digital music

You will need a digital music player. At my site, you have a choice of downloading songs in two formats:
• MP3 - which gives enables you to listen to the music in a quality close to CD quality once you have downloaded it, and
• RealAudio - which is more like 'click-and-listen' quality. Transistor radio quality, but saving you the download time.

MP3 files can be played on numerous players. If you don't have one, you'll need to download it.
MusicMatch and MacAmp is recommendable for Mac-users, while RealAudio's jukebox or Windows Media Player works well for PC. (And there are so many other MP3 players out there.)
PC players, upgrades, and technical support are available for free at Windows Media Player. Make sure you have the latest upgraded version of the player of your choice.

RealAudio files can be played with RealAudio software only. If it didn't come automatically with your browser, download it here.

To download a songs, simply click on the appropriate link under the song. Choose the size according to the speed of your modem connection.
If you have a 28.8 modem, click on "low quality"
If you have a 56.6 modem, click on "medium quality"
