please note: These downloads are not free (although via Bandcamp you can preview substantial sections from many albums without charge). All of the musicians involved in making these recordings have lives to live and associated bills to pay (apart from a handful who are sadly no longer with us) - and many of them have no other source of income apart from playing and/or writing music. We think this music (and the people who create it) have at least some value...
Our preferred download/streaming option is Bandcamp, since this guarantees that the majority of the money you invest finds its way directly to the label and the musicians. (As you are probably aware, with some of the more widely known download/streaming sites the final amount reaching the producers of the music can be absolutely negligible.) Please do not support those bloggers and others who, by brazenly distributing this music without authorisation, directly undermine our ability to continue to produce it.
These download options will give you a choice of several better quality audio formats, including 320kmp3, flac, wav, Apple Lossless, aac etc. You will generally find only whole albums available (since that's the way this music was intended to be heard).
