Vee-Jay Album Discography, Part 2:
Main Series VJS-1071 to VJS-1154 (1963-1965)

by Mike Callahan and David Edwards
Last update: December 15, 2006

The third major Vee-Jay label design (far left) is commonly called "the brackets label" because the logo appears to be enclosed in brackets. The "brackets label" came in after Ewart Abner left the company and Randy Wood took over as president. It was black with silver printing. "VJ" above the center hole in white with a white bracket on each side, under the "VJ" is "VEE-JAY RECORDS" in white on two lines. Around the perimeter of the label is the same multi-colored band that is on the second label. This label was used from VJLP-1071 to VJLP-1154, it was also used on the 2500 series, and the gospel issues in 1964 and 1965. There were two different promotional labels both with a white label with blue or black printing. On the first, to the left and right of the center hole are the "VJ" with brackets logos (the same design but smaller than logo on standard copy) in blue. Under each logo are the words "PROMOTIONAL COPY" in blue. Around the perimeter of the label is a blue band. The second promotional label (near left) had the brackets logo on top in blue, with blue print.

For those LPs where we know of a stereo issue, we have used the stereo catalog number ("VJS-"). Those albums with an "VJ-" prefix are thought to have been issued in mono only. For albums where we are not sure about a stereo issue, we have used "VJ*-" (the mono prefix with an asterisk) as the prefix. The prefixes from this point were not entirely consistent, as sometimes "VJLP-" was used for mono issues.

We would appreciate any additions or corrections to this discography. Just send them to us via e-mail. Both Sides Now Publications is an information web page.

Starting at this point, the "brackets logo" replaces the "oval logo" on album covers. Prefix changes from "LP/SR-" to "VJ/VJS-". Later issues of the catalog items released before this point can have the brackets label, but covers were rarely, if ever, redone to change the logos.

VJS-1154 - Recorded Live on Stage - Four Seasons [1965] The original stereo version of this LP has matrix numbers 65-2000S and 65-2001S, and is all true stereo. Vee-Jay later pressed "stereo" copies using the mono stampers. The songs are allegedly live, but sound like studio recordings with a crowd overdub. On the stereo version, the crowd is in mono in the middle, while the rest of the song is in stereo. Blues In The Night (S)/Just In Time (S)/Little Boy (In Grown Up Clothes) (S)/I Can Dream Can't I? (S)/How Do You Make A Hit Song? (S)//Medley: By Myself- Jada-We Three (S)/Day In Day Out (S)/My Mother's Eyes (S)/Mack The Knife (S)/Come Si Bella (S)/Brotherhood (S) Of Man

Thanks to Bruce Spizer, Frank Daniels, John Barrett, Mikel Orsborn, and Tom Maynard.
