    I get some 24/44.1 from bleep.com. Not really high res tho.

    Boomkat should be on here. Most of their music is 16/44, though they do, I've heard, sometimes have higher res music.

    Take a look at www.dreamstreaming.info , it is a listings site including all the above LEGAL download sources, and a lot more not shown. A free resource site for everyone to use. Enjoy.

    bandcamp.com has options to download in most any format, and you can find many albums that are free or pay-what-you-can. Many genres, too.

    i don't think i am ruining the industry by asking for some free HQ music download sites am i? because I download a lot of music and i can't be assed to pay money for the music.
