Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Check the output again. This confused me at first, but it IS listing it recursively. The output doesn't include the full path in the name of the file. It's listing the path in the output just before the list of files in the directory that match your criteria.
In my home directory 'ls -R *mp3 gave back some output like:
02 Your Wall.mp3
05 Goodbye Again.mp3
Blue October- Calling You.mp3 Blue October - Razorblade.mp3
Blue October - Inner Glow.mp3 Blue October - Ugly side.mp3
thanks for the help. using 'ls -R *mp3' does what I wanted. I was using 'ls -R *.mp3' and it was not working. I guess the '.' was tripping it up. Oddly enough using a command like 'ls */*.mp3' doesn't mind the '.', but then again that command won't recurse through all subdirs.
