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.

Album Of The Day

27/7/17 – Brave New World – Impressions On Reading Aldous Huxley – 1972

Whether you actually need to have read Aldous Huxley and agree with the outcome of this record might depend on how seriously you take a concept album – after all, it is an impression not the actual work that inspired it. And really, if the album had been called Impressions On Reading George Orwell would anyone […]

25/7/17 – Epitaph – 1st Album – 1971 / Early Morning – 1972

The other day in Frankfurt at Mythos Records, Thomas made me buy the first Epitaph album. I found myself agreeing without thinking too hard about it. It wasn’t that cheap, wasn’t in the greatest condition and I didn’t know the album. Of course later I discovered that even a bit scratchy this was a bargain […]
