You just need the original CDs and can rip the files to FLAC from there.
The files on an original CD are wav files, FLAC simply is another codec that allows you to store these files in a lossless way at smaller file sizes.
MP3 was/is used because you can get very small sized files, but depending on how you set the encoder, you'll have a definite loss of quality in terms of frequencies that are cut off.
