Well, besides a huge CD collection as a base, there is
a significant amount of live stuff (archive.org is a
source for free live music) and CD-R trading of live
shows, tv/movie outtakes, old 12" remixes from DJ
collections, Audio books, etc. Been building the
collection for years since the days of DOS
command-line MP3 creation. I have never done the
napster thing or whatever peer-to-peer apps are out
there these days to trade MP3s.
