HONEST JON'S RECORDS
By Domino Radio
Honest Jon’s the shop opened in Golborne Road in 1974. Does this make us the oldest independent record shop in London (England / the world) still trading? Near enough I would think.
The original owners were Jon Clare and his school mate from Liverpool, Dave. “Dave was into James Brown, I was into Clifford Brown” is how Jon describes their primary specialisms, soul and jazz. Reggae also was an early passion. Rae Cheddie – who worked for Jon and Dave, and who went on to represent the Bullwackies label and much else – remembers Augustus Pablo and Horace Andy driving up to wholesale a boot-full of disco 12’s. To this day Mark and I (we worked for Jon for years before taking over the shop in 1992) retain a devotion to these genres, now bolstered by much digging into music from all around the world (not to mention London).
