Hear, hear.  I've already found people I've either not heard of or didn't 
hear enough of to check out.  Now I got the chance and solely because of 
what I've heard on Napster I've bought Ani Difranco, Patty Larkin, Leo 
Kottke (from my home state!  woooohooo!), . . .  even *new* no less!  I 
to buy used cds predominately.

This is an email from a friend of mine to whom I sent some Ani mp3's to:

   which album should i start with ?!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I'll do that.  *implementing 'New Folder' feature*

Actually, I usually found new stuff by searching for stuff I know, and 
checking out what people who have this stuff also have.  Anybody with 
'Zappa' in their libraries has got to be worth a look.  I've been pretty 
successful, but the vast, vast majority of songs are by "well-known"
