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. 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.
