With the right software and hardware, it’s easy to use MP3s to turn your computer into a virtual jukebox, create audio files that are nearly indistinguishable from the original source, make compilation discs from your CD collection, and share music with your friends. The problem is that there are so many choices to make and settings to tweak that its easy to get overwhelmed by all the options.

Young Voices for the Planet We Sing Out!
We Sing Out! features the Rivertown Kids singing with folk legend Pete Seeger. These youth pay a poignant tribute to Pete who, sadly, passed on before the film was completed. But he left a legacy; the Rivertown kids have a deep environmental ethic and ‘speak out musically’ about a renewable energy powered future. Seeger, an iconic musician and a truly good, decent, honest and principled human being, changed the world in so many ways from marching with Martin Luther King for civil rights to the clean up of the Hudson River, to his commitment to acting as a mentor to the younger generation.
The quality of these music sites is high. Usually their albums are for sale on the site. A to Z, however, is not affiliated with these folks. Your guide just likes the songs, and thinks you will, too.
