Incredibly cheap MP3 site

Here are some ridiculously cheap Rostropovich offerings, but theres loads more on there. People who can read Russian - this is US dollars? I can't quite believe it...

Well, I read a little Russian but that doesn't really help because I can't find the information. All I can tell you is that the minimum purchase is $10. (Whatever the $ stands for... ::))

apparently they're evil, ad pretty much illegal - artists never see a penny, and some guy was arrested the other week for selling vouchers on ebay for it.

Yeah, there was a threatening letter a while ago to The Irish Times from a collection of lawyers about that and another site, saying it's illegal to buy pirate music.

Not illegal to sell it in Russia, though.

Unless I'm very much mistaken (and I could easily be, as I am increasingly these days), the people behind allofmp3.com are also behind some VERY VERY unsavoury websites that I'm given to understand are quite harrowing.
