Here's my objective. Take any song - Beatles, Stones, Marvin Gaye. I want to be able to purchase that song - as I would on iTunes - but get a higher quality file.

Filemare has some wav files, but looks like a sharing site where viruses could be passed.  Is this true?

Of course Viruses exist in  all parts of the net.
FIlemare is not a Sharing site it is an FTP search engine unbiased when indexing.
No one sings up to get indexed by them.

Maybe a query something like this

iTunes Beatles filetype:wav

You might find a place to buy the songs, Ofcourse.

>>  Take any song - Beatles, Stones, Marvin Gaye. I want to be able to purchase that song - as I would on iTunes - but get a higher quality file.

Your best bet would be to buy the CD and rip it to disk and convert to the format you want.  You can have high quality mp3, pure wav files or FLAC.  Your choice.

There are a number of places you can get high quality files from but not necessarily the ones you want.  See the following links for more information.

https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php  pops up in a number of sources.  In some cases sells individual tracks, in others full albums only.

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/askjack/2012/jun/14/digital-music-flac-sources gives various links

http://forums.audioholics.com/forums/musical-goodness/67154-free-legal-high-resolution-music-downloads.html more links.  Note the Internet Archive.  Goodness there but from bands and groups and singers you'll never have heard of.
