The EFI MP3 page


All mp3 samples on the site are legal; they are included here with the permission of the musicians and/or the record labels. Some are complete tracks while others are extracts. Samples are only included once and so audio clips of some musicians may be found other than just under their own name; a scan down the second column will pick these up easily.
