StratocasterMan, this is a great thread, I'm lovin' it!
Besides being free, I'm getting introduced to some new music that I'll probably eventually end up buying.
Don't know of any links to free FLAC files myself, but if I find any I'll post them here.
Thanks for starting this thread!!
Edit: HDtracks has a free sampler that you can download in FLAC
Thanks, ejmcgee! Do you have a link to the free sampler at HDtracks?
