The 'Grapevine 2000' Soul Label
Previously Unissued 45's Special!


Introduction


In this article I concentrate on previously unissued tracks PLUS tracks that have never previously appeared on 45 until they were issued by Grapevine 2000. I finish the article with a full label listing of all sixty three 45’s including the original label info (where there is one!) for each release.

The SIXTY THREE 45's released by the label between the years 2000 to 2006 are of such a consistently high quality that it's collectability as a label in the future is virtually guaranteed! A large percentage of the releases featured previously unissued Northern Soul, 70's Soul & Crossover dancers from the 60's & 70's plus album tracks that were released for the first time ever on 45! There was also a large number of 'Holy Grail' 45's included in the release schedule over the 6 years of the labels existence! For the many of the world's Northern Soul, 70's Soul & Crossover collectors, the Grapevine 2000 45 will often be the only way they can legally own that particular track on a 45! The label is now sadly defunct and the availability of each release will decrease as time goes by.

Before we get into the previously unissued tracks I think it’s important to talk about the type of 45’s Grapevine 2000 issued! Like many labels they made Test Pressings, DJ copies and normal Issue copies.

 Test Pressings

Test Pressings were of course made for every release but usually only in 1's or 2's with the odd copy being sent out to leading DJ's with mocked-up or hand-written labels. Actually, for the first 13 releases (#100 to #112 plus #153) 20 Test Pressings were made of each with a view to distributing them as promotional vehicles for a larger number of key DJ's and reviewers. Releases #100 to #104 are blank/white labels whilst #105 to #112 (& #153) have custom made printed  labels (see scan). Some of these exist as blank labels too!

  Grapevine Label Scan                            Grapevine Label Scan

DJ copies

DJ copies exist for ALL 63 releases.

#100 to #104 are White Demos with a Black ‘A’ on both sides & a pale Green ‘boxed’ logo (see scans)

 Grapevine Label Scan                            Grapevine Label Scan

  #105 to #162 are White Demos with a Red/White logo.

There are three design variations of the Red & White DJ Copies (see scans)

Red ‘A’ on both sides (#105 to #148 & #155 to #157)

 Grapevine Label Scan                            Grapevine Label Scan

NO Red ‘A’ on either side (#149 to #154)
Note - A Red 'A' should have been on both sides but a printing error missed them off!
When the error was noticed they decided to leave them as they were!

Grapevine Label Scan                            Grapevine Label Scan

 Red ‘A’ on one side only (#158 to #162)
Why the last 5 releases should have a Red 'A' only on one side is a little story in itself!
It was not a printing error (like releases #149 to #154), it was in fact one of the guys with a different point of view i.e. DJ copies should only have a large 'A' on the actual plug side! It had previously been policy to print an 'A' on either side meaning 'Advance' rather than signifying which side was actually the plug side!

 Grapevine Label Scan                            Grapevine Label Scan

 Only 50 copies of each Demo/DJ copy was made.

Issue copies

Issue copies exist for 61 of the 63 releases
#132 (licensing problems) & #155 (final sound problems) are DJ copies only as their releases were cancelled at the last minute! No issue copies exist!
#100 to #104 have a solid ‘pale’ green label with black text logo & #105 to #162 have a solid yellow label with a red/white logo (see scans)

 Grapevine Label Scan                            Grapevine Label Scan

 Only 500 copies of each Issue was made.

 The label did issue some ‘custom made’ acetates and CD-R’s for some of the top DJ’s and in fact some DJ’s actually cut carvers from the CD-R’s for their own use!

Previously unissued tracks plus tracks appearing on 45 for the first time

 As promised, here’s the main reason for the article! I hope it will give collectors (& DJ’s) a chance to see which tracks were previously unissued PLUS it’s also a chance to see which LP only (and CD only!) tracks gained a 45 release for the very first time too!

I’ll give some basic info for each track followed by a brief description of the track from my point of view! Where I have been given a few extra facts about a particular track (from insiders at Grapevine 2000) I’ll throw those in for good measure too!

There will be a URL after each description to allow you to listen to each track PLUS a scan of each label too!

G2K 45-102b               RON HENDERSON & CHOICE OF COLOR – Love is gone

USA LP track only - 1st time ever on a 45

Taken from their incredibly rare ‘Soul Junction’ LP on Chelsea 542 from 1976. This is a quality mid-tempo 70’s dancer.

G2K 45-103a             BOBBY WAYNE – Long hard road

                    G2K 45-103b             BOBBY WAYNE – Do I love you (indeed I do)

USA CD only - 1st time ever on a 45

Both tracks taken from his ‘Long hard road’ CD on Bonedog Records from 1999. ‘Do I Love you’ is of course a version of Frank Wilson’s Northern Soul/Motown classic which is set at the same pace and is worth a listen? The real gem however is ‘Long hard road’ which is for lovers of Indie/Southern Soul! It is a tasty mid-tempo mover and is another one that's well worth a listen!

G2K 45-104a                        MAGNETICS – The look on your face (UNRELEASED)

    G2K 45-104b
                        MAGNETICS – You were made for love (UNRELEASED)

 Both sides of this 45 are the same two songs as James Phelps on Apache! Their version of ‘The look on your face’ joins the many great versions that have been played on the Crossover scene over the years. John Anderson received a tape directly from Johnny McKinney in Chicago and gave it to Richard Searling who played it for many years covered up as ‘Wales Wallace’. The B side is an excellent Deep Soul cut too!

G2K 45-106a            TAVASCO – Love is trying to get a hold on me (Radio edit)

 Edited over in the in the UK by Paul Mooney and of course exclusive to the UK release. It is actually quite useful as the original is a very long record and it’s cut short here and it is quite a good job too! That good they made it the A side!

G2K 45-117b             SANDRA WRIGHT - A man can’t be a man (without a woman)

 UK LP track only - 1st time ever on a 45

 Taken from her highly acclaimed and originally unreleased album ‘Wounded Woman’ from 1975 which eventually saw the light of day as an LP (& CD) on Demon in 1985. This is a quality mid-tempo 70’s dancer and yet another fine version of this great song. By the way, if you haven’t got the LP, there are a whole host of brilliant Soul records on there. The Demon LP is tough to find (and the CD even tougher!) BUT it was re-released a couple of years ago by Soulscape Records on CD (SSCD 7007) and is still available.

G2K 45-121b                        THE SPRINGERS – I can't believe (UNRELEASED)

 Tucked away on the B side of ‘Nothing’s too good for my baby’ this is an excellent 60’s finger-snapping dancer. Quite sparse but a neat sound nonetheless! The track was supplied to Grapevine from Philadelphia’s Thaddeus Wale, who has now given up the record business and now works for the US Government!

Grapevine Label Scan

G2K 45-127a               C. P. LOVE - Trick Bag (UNRELEASED)

 Another great unreleased 60’s Northern Soul/R&B dancer. This is the same song as 'The Excuses' rarity on Vivace! One to come back and surprise people in years to come methinks? Garry Cape brought this to the table via his friendship with the producer of the track, Tim Whitsett.

              G2K 45-134b
         M. R. S. BAND - Why did you leave me baby (UNRELEASED)

A legendary unreleased Northern Soul dancer from the Chesterfields using the same backing track as 'Yvonne Baker - You didn't say a word' This was an exclusive acetate played covered up by Butch for many years, before it finally got a release on Grapevine 2000. The B side ‘Why did you leave me baby’ is a pounding Northern instrumental from the Harthon vaults! Not sure what this is the backing track to?

 G2K 45-136a                        SERVICEMEN – I’ll stop loving you (UNRELEASED)

This is a great 60’s group Northern dancer that is well worth a spin again? Various contacts in Phoenix, Arizona conspired to get this one to the Grapevine team!

   G2K 45-137a                        TOMMY TATE – Do you think there’s a chance

G2K 45-137b
                        TOMMY TATE – If you got to love somebody

 Two killer tracks from Tommy Tate seeing releases on 45 for the 1st time ever!

 ‘Do you think there’s a chance’ is taken from his rare ‘Hold on’ Japanese-only LP on Malaco/Vivid Sound 1017 from 1979. This is a brilliant mid-tempo 70’s dancer that is as catchy as hell with a hands-in-the-air feel to it! Backed with the sublime anthemic ‘If you got to love somebody’ which is the version found on his ‘Soul Revelations’ Japanese-only CD on P-Vine 22008 from 1996 and is a different (and better in my opinion) version than that of the ultra rare Ko Ko 726 demo-only 45 from 1977. With the always excellent vocals of Mr Tommy Tate this is a brilliant value for money 45!. We can thank Garry Cape once again for this, as we can all the Malaco related stuff that came out on Grapevine 2000!

G2K 45-138b
    M. R. S. BAND - Diggin' It (UNRELEASED)

 The first of THREE unreleased Eddie Holman tracks to get a release on Grapevine 2000. ‘Hold me in your arms’ is a neat 60's Philly Northern Soul dancer! The instrumental ‘Diggin' It’ is another Northern dancer which sounds familiar. Was there ever a vocal to this?

G2K 45-140a                        SYL JOHNSON – All I need is someone like you

 Japanese LP track only 1st time ever on a 45

Taken from his rare Japanese-only ‘Goodie Goodie Good Times’ LP on Shama/P-Vine 9009 from 1979. This is a monster previously unissued late 60’s Crossover dancer which uses the same backing track as 'Nate Evans - Mainsqueeze - Twinight'. This is better I reckon! It’s interesting to note that the female vocalist on here is Syl’s ex-wife, Barbara Thompson, who went on to be Chief of Police in Chicago!

G2K 45-145b                        LOVELITES – I’m not like the others (UNRELEASED)

 Light and lovely femme Chicago crossover which was previously unissued and from the same sessions as their rare late 60’s LP ‘With love from the Lovelites’ on UNI. The track was included in the CD reissue of the LP some years ago but this is the first ever release on 45!

G2K 45-146b
                        THE VINES – So it be (UNRELEASED)

 Two previously unreleased femme 60’s Northern Soul dancers! ‘After the rain’ sounds like it uses the same backing track as Minnie Jones' Shadow of a memory? Whilst ‘So it be’ is more of a mid tempo dancer!

G2K 45-147b
                                     JOHNNY MOORE – Come Fly With Me (UNRELEASED)

 ‘Yesterday today and tomorrow’ became widely known in the 80’s and 90’s through Richard Searling who played it for many years from the original acetate. It eventually saw a release on 45 in 2004. Sounding like a perfect mixture of  L. J. Reynolds' 'Key to the world' AND Al James' 'Give it up turn it loose' this is another one that could do with playing again. Beautiful record! ‘Come Fly With Me’ is a rather good 70’s dancer but pales against the wonderful top side!

Unissued mid 60's Northern Soul dancer from this legendary artist with the instrumental version on the B side. The track came about when Jerry Williams sent a tape to Garry after dealing with him on the release of the Ruby Andrews’ CD of her Zodiac sides (JW had recently acquired the rights to Zodiac)

G2K 45-152ab
                   DOTTIE PEARSON - Bring It Over Baby (UNRELEASED)

 Two tracks from a superb unissued mid 70’s album that was finally given a CD release on Grapevine 2000. ‘Bring It Over Baby’ is a total classic in every sense. Released in 2004, this must be Grapevine 2000's finest hour? Still played regularly up and down the country at all the best 70’s venues and adds a touch of class to any set – simply stunning mid-tempo Soul Music. ‘A House Made Of Love’ was the one the G2K boys went with at the time and is so damn good that it sits just as well on a Northern Soul dance floor as that of a 70’s Crossover persuasion. Brilliant double-sider! I think we should all be grateful to John Anderson for the day he visited Wayne Jernigan in Charlotte, North Carolina and came out with Dottie’s unissued album!

G2K 45-153b
                       CHUCK BROOKS – Last minute plans (UNRELEASED)

 ‘I can stand a little bit more’ is a storming early 70's unreleased Northern Soul dancer out of the Malaco set up. Great track! Anita also recorded as Anita Mitchell in the 1970’s. ‘Last minute plans’ is another unreleased Malaco track from 1999 (but sounds much earlier!) and was originally included on their fabulous CD ‘America’s Most Wanted’ then leaked out onto 45 a few months later. I still believe this is largely unknown and is a beautiful mid tempo soulful swayer. Maybe more for an early doors set but it could get some serious head-nodding action should it be dropped later in a set! Chuck Brooks apparently wrote the song with Johnnie Taylor in mind but unfortunately Johnnie died soon after, so had he lived he may well have done so? By the way, the ‘Malaco inspired’ set of America’s Most Wanted CD’s are another of the Grapevine 2000 highlights!

G2K 45-155a                        BARONS OF SOUL - You Need Love (UNRELEASED)

Top quality unissued 60's Northern Soul monster dancer! Cut from an original acetate and now exists as a UK Demo ONLY as the official release was pulled at the last minute as the guys couldn’t enhance the sound quality to their exacting standards. The sound quality doesn’t sound too bad to me to be honest and the quality of the tune itself makes owning this 45 more than worthwhile! This will become a highly sought after 45 in the future as DJ’s realise it’s potential.

G2K 45-159a              GORGEOUS GEORGE – You Can't Stop A Woman (UNRELEASED)

 Woof! Serious Crossover Soul dancer. Proper brass laden 70’s chugger with a killer vocal that again, I believe has slipped through the net, as this was released towards the end of the labels life in 2006. This was an unissued Peachtree track that came of course through the mighty William Bell. Bloody marvellous track and my type of Crossover!

 Eddie’s third and final release and yet another 60's Philly Northern Soul dancer. The B side is the unreleased instrumental version of The Four Larks' monster Northern Soul classic of the same name! This is well worth a listen too! Incidentally, all the ‘Harthon’ material released on G2K was of course supplied via the late great Weldon McDougall III through his long term friendship with John Anderson.

The last but one release on the label! ‘Is This A Woman's Way’ is a storming unreleased Northern Soul dancer written & produced by Jerry Williams. It also uses the same backing track as 'Youngblood Smith - You can split - Verve' (which can't be bad!). The B side ‘Where Can I Find Love’ is a really nice surprise as it’s a gritty Southern/Deep Soul mover! More tracks of this style would have been good as this is real quality Soul Music!

 Strangely enough, this is the ONLY release to feature another logo (La Beat) on the label other than the G2K logo! Sadly, this was the LAST release on the label BUT boy did they go out with a bang! The legendary Al Williams appears here (courtesy of the label owner Lou Beatty) on a previously unissued 60’s Detroit ‘La Beat’ recording which is an absolute gem of a dancer! This should have become a monster on the Northern scene but as it was released at the very end of the label’s life, it meant promotion was limited. It is now simply poised to become one 5 years on! Simply brilliant and a great way to bow out!

So there you go a full appraisal of all the previously unissued tracks plus tracks appearing on 45 for the first time. I do hope many people find the article useful? As it’s a web page we have added links in so you can hear a particular track along with seeing a scan each label. I’m also planning on doing a podcast of what I consider to be the key tracks from the list above, so please keep your eyes on the web site as it should be on in a few weeks.

 My thanks go out to Garry Cape who gave me some great information on the background of some of the previously unissued tracks. He also gave me lots of great info about many of the other previously released tracks which could be used in future for a wider appraisal of the label’s overall output?

 Finally, a little plug for my web page dedicated totally to Grapevine 2000 at www.soulmusic.co.uk/grapevine_special.htm I have a number of early Test Pressings & a few DJ Copies (including The Barons & Percy Stone at time of going to press) BUT they are all in VERY limited numbers and of course ‘When they’re gone they’re gone’ (as they say!)

 Finally, as promised, here’s the full label listing
