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

23/7/17 – Amon Düül II – Between The Eyes – 1970

In 1970, when I was 12 years old, Amon Düül II were releasing their second album Yeti. Over the next four years I gradually caught up and began to discover the German Rock Scene and the English Progressive scene as I started to go and see bands live. Consequently CAN, Ashra Tempel, Neu, Tangerine Dream […]

Beethoven Conducting

Song Of The Day

11/7/17 – Natalie Schwamova – Beethoven – Rondo e capriccio op.129 – Rage Over The Lost Penny / Morrissey – Jack The Ripper From Beethoven Was Deaf – 1993

From Berlin to Frankfurt and today venturing into Bonn to pick up Olivia’s violin from the repair shop. It rained (again) and driving and then walking through the streets of this city, I notice a rather large leaning towards Classical Music. It is of course the birthplace of Beethoven and the deathplace of Robert Schumann […]

Somehow lost in the 1500 word epic Frankfurt trip post, floundering at the bottom of the page, stuck in the honey, drowned in the coffee, scratched by the stone, the alien metallic disc, indestructible, stretches out beyond immortality, surviving the human race, rising from the ashes long, long, long after you are gone. If you […]

On a scorching hot German day we left Olivia’s secret village for a trip to Frankfurt with her Mum. Siv flying to Sweden to see relatives, Olivia and I having a day exploring Frankfurt or in truth checking out some record stores. Leaving at 7 AM was tricky for night owls and once Siv had […]
