78s From The EMI Archive

Thirty amazing tracks recorded between 1903 and 1957,
everywhere from England — Percy Grainger’s recording of the title song in 1908 —
to the court of the Japanese emperor five years earlier, the stunning Segaiha.
Organ rolls from Georgia run alongside Tamils impersonating motorized transport
and rumba from Beirut, vintage fado alongside the songs of Bengali beggars
— with celebrated names dotting the mix,
like Joseph Taylor, Fairuz, the Mighty Sparrow,
and an uncredited Ruben Gonzalez.


Dreißig erstaunliche Titel, aufgenommen zwischen 1903 und 1957,
überall aus England - Percy Graingers Aufnahme des Titelliedes von 1908 -
bis hin zum Hof des japanischen Kaisers fünf Jahre zuvor, dem umwerfenden Segaiha.
Orgelwalzen aus Georgien laufen neben Tamilen, die motorisierte Transportmittel imitieren
und Rumba aus Beirut, klassischer Fado neben den Liedern bengalischer Bettler
- mit berühmten Namen, die die Mischung auflockern,
wie Joseph Taylor, Fairuz, The Mighty Sparrow,
und ein nicht namentlich genannter Ruben Gonzalez.

EN: Honest Jon's is an independent record shop based on Portobello Road in Ladbroke Grove, London, operating since 1974. The shop is owned and run by Mark Ainley and Alan Scholefield, who took over from one of the original proprietors, "Honest" Jon Clare. Their record label of the same name is run in conjunction with Damon Albarn, who has been quoted as saying: "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."[1] The shop sells a multitude of genres of music on vinyl and CD, specializing in jazz, blues, reggae, dance, soul, folk and outernational. It runs a mail-order business from www.honestjons.com. Formed in 2002, the label has released compilation albums such as its London Is The Place For Me series, excavating the music of young Black London, in the years after World War II ("a fascinating archive of material from the 1950s and 60s, chronicling a time when diasporic rhythms were more or less the sole preserve of the small communities responsible for bringing them to these shores");[2] also collections of British folk, Port-of-Spain soca, Afro-Cuban jazz from the Bronx, Jamaican dancehall; and retrospectives of artists including Moondog, Maki Asakawa, Bettye Swann and Cedric "Im" Brooks & The Light of Saba. It has released original music by Candi Staton, Actress, T++, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mark Ernestus, Trembling Bells, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Simone White, Shackleton, Michael Hurley, Terry Hall, and the Moritz Von Oswald Trio. It recorded the chaabi orchestra of Abdel Hadi Halo on location in Algiers; Lobi Traore and Kokanko Sata Doumbia in Bamako; and Tony Allen in Lagos. In 2008, Honest Jon's began a run of compilations of early recordings — mostly drawn from the EMI Archive in Hayes, Hillingdon — stretching back to the start of the twentieth century, covering all corners of the world: from the break-up of the Ottoman Empire more than a hundred years ago, to 1950s Beirut, to late-1920s Baghdad, to 1930s East Africa. wikipedia
