Welcome To The Archive

The In Deep Music Archive is an eclectic collection of music in many forms. An historical and contemporary library of all available physical formats - Vinyl, CD, Cassette, Reel to Reel tape, 8 Track, 78RPM, VHS, DVD, Laser discs, reference books, encyclopedias, catalogues, biographies and magazines. The archive's digital presence is manifested on the In Deep Music Archive website with regular posts about both popular and more obscure artists included in the collection. Collected by Marty Willson-Piper over the past 50 years, the archive has grown into this wonderful collection through a life of scouring the record stores around the world, but also through generous donations from friends, fans and record labels alike. Any funding goes directly towards either running costs or increasing the content. Our ambition for the archive is to create a musical culture centre with a small venue, that will also be used for music lessons and workshops and as a meeting place for music lovers in a unique atmosphere. Access to the archive will be available to the public in some form yet to be determined.

Song Of The Day

23/4/17 – Stevie Nicks With Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around – 1981

Originally recorded by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers for inclusion on the 1981 album Hard Promises, it was left off as the lyric had a female perspective. Producer Jimmy Iovine had been working with The Heartbreakers and Nicks simultaneously and she became the perfect choice for the female voice. The song was written by Petty and guitarist […]

Song Of The Day

22/4/17 – Nick Cave And PJ Harvey – Henry Lee – 1996 / Dick Justice – Henry Lee – 1927 / Judy Henske – Love Henry – 1963

From an unlikely duet with Kylie Minogue to a likely one with PJ Harvey, both songs come from the Murder Ballads album released by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds in 1996. Henry Lee was the second single off the album after Where The Wild Roses Grow, the duet with Kylie. The song is a traditional […]

Song Of The Day

21/4/17 – Nick Cave And Kylie Minogue – Where The Wild Roses Grow – 1996 / Charlie Monroe – Down In The Willow Garden – 1947

Where The Wild Roses Grow was written by Nick Cave with Kylie Minogue in mind. I’m not sure he planned to murder her but the concept fitted nicely onto his Murder Ballads album released in 1996 on Mute records. Inspired by Down In The Willow Garden (also known as Rose Connelly), Irish in origin and adapted in […]

20/4/17 – Nancy Sinatra And Lee Hazlewood – Jackson – 1967 / Johnny Cash And June Carter – Jackson – 1967 / Florence Welch And Josh Homme – Jackson – 2012/ Towa Carson Och Mats Olsson – Laxå – 1967 / Carola Standertskjöld And Lasse Mårtenson – Mä lähden Stadiin – 1967

When I was 9 years old I bought this catchy single probably after hearing it on the radio, no picture sleeve, no video. I was completely unaware of the Johnny Cash/June Carter version. I was also completely unaware that Nancy Sinatra was the spitting image of Lady Penelope! (See the video below). Of course the […]

Song Of The Day

19/4/17 – Sonny And Cher – I Got You Babe – 1965

Sonny and Cher’s I Got You Babe, was the other most famous duet of the sixties along with Frank and Nancy’s Somethin’ Stupid. Although this might be THE most overplayed songs of the sixties (along with all those other overplayed songs of the sixties) historically it stands as the first Hippie No.1. That is Hippies […]

Song Of The Day

18/4/17 – Kevin Ayers featuring Nico – The Confessions Of Doctor Dream A) Irreversible Neural Damage – 1974

Released in May 1974, this was Ayers first album for Island records after four albums for Harvest. He only stayed at Island for one more album before returning to Harvest for another three and then, well, the eighties came. Thought of as one of his most accessible records (they all sound accessible to me) and […]
