A BLOB type can store anything, including arbitrary data such as images
or sounds, or the output from gzip.
As for MP3 compression and uncompression, you'd have to handle that
yourself. MySQL is not an MP3 player and it won't interpret your data
for you, it simply provides the repository for storage and retrieval.
