These are now for sale - this is a rare opportunity to get hold of a complete run of Grapevine 2000 demos, all in mint condition. There are 63 releases. Everyone seems to sell these at a minimum of £20 each but nobody appears to have demos of the big Northern titles left. These include Don Gardner, Magnetics, Gerri Hall, Eddie Holman, Fortson & Scott, Vickie Labatt, Servicemen, Bobby James, Al Williams and the Barons Of Soul which was never issued. PLEASE NOTE AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME I AM SELLING THEM AS A SET AND WILL NOT SPLIT THEM. I am asking for offers over £1200.

Discography copied from soulmusic.co.uk, they still may have some individual titles available should you wish to check them out.
