Hi Rocky and John

What a great idea. However, BearShare is file sharing where you never will know what quality to expect.

But some Russian sites exist where you for a low fee (typically one US Dollar per album) can download much popular music and often rare albums and singles.
I haven't used the services myself because some discussion is going on wether they are legitimate or not - as the artists seem not to receive any share of the fee - or if this is perfectly legal according to Russian law (if Shamil is listening he may be able to add a comment here).

But, of course, to download music for private use which you already possess in "hard copy" should cause no problem.
I just don't know where to find the time to rip of dozens of LPs and do the post processing, so downloading finished copies for a nominal fee might be an option.

If you own the LP it seems you could download the song from Bear Share 
or someplace and it wouldn't be illegal since you already bought the 
song.  Then you could get your collection on MP3 without the hassle of 
the transfer.
