Can anyone recommend a good facility for downloading a sound track, such as music, from Youtube and converting it to an audio file such as MP3? Thanks

This is the standard tool but whether you like it may depend on how technical you are. Other tools you might use may well use this in the background. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youtube-dl

I'm not technical enough to use the method advised above but I was recommended http://www.listentoyoutube.com
which is great but watch out for adverts on the page that are disguised as buttons (just to keep you on your toes!).

I use something called Freemake Video Downloader which can be found online. You can download the video or convert it to MP3 at the same time.
If you download the software use the custom installation and untick all the boxes so you don't end up with other bundled software like toolbars you didn't want etc.

I used to use 'Youtube to MP3 converter' but it stopped working so now i use Freerip MP3converter which seems to be fine. Just downloaded some Zappa. Doesn't seem to have any baggage which I have noticed on other downloads!

Download as MP4 with the downloadhelper plugin for firefox, then use formatfactory to convert to MP3.
