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.

Our task is to move it from storage in England to Portugal where we have the premises ready after generous donations allowed us to renovate, including painting, cleaning, plumbing, electricity issues, and ongoing fixes.
