NOTTING HILL, REGGAE & VINYL 

There used to be a record shop selling reggae music on almost every corner in Notting Hill, and Honest Jon’s is one of the few that’s left. This old-school record shop has been here since 1974 and sells jazz, blues, reggae, dance and soul music on vinyl and CDs. Damon Albarn is one of the owners and according to Wikipedia he has said this: “I don’t really like the term world music. Wherever it comes from, it’s all just music, isn’t it? Hopefully that’s what Honest Jon’s is about – to open a few minds to what’s out there.”

NOTTING HILL, REGGAE & VINYL 

Det pleide å være en platebutikk, som solgte reggae musikk, på nesten hvert hjørne i Notting Hill og Honest Jon’s er en av de få som er igjen. Denne old-school platebutikken har vært her siden 1974 og selger jazz, blues, reggae, dance og soul på vinyl og CD. Damon Albarn er en av eierne og ifølge Wikipedia har han sagt dette: “Jeg liker egentlig ikke termen ‘world music.’ For uansett hvor det kommer fra så er jo alt fremdeles musikk ikke sant? Det er det Honest Jon’s handler om – å vise folk hva det er som finnes der ute.”
