Vee-Jay Album Discography, Part 10:
Vee-Jay Limited Partnership (1990-1994)

VEE-JAY III (1990-1994)

The Vee-Jay CDs and cassettes started rolling off the presses in late October, 1992. Initially, all but the jazz issues were available on cassette, but after the second quarter's releases (January, 1993), the cassettes were discontinued. Where they were available, we have noted it in the discography below. The highlight of the releases was a 3-CD box set covering the history of the label, released in September, 1993. The box set had extensive liner notes, photos, and a souvenir copy of "Goodnite, Sweetheart, Goodnite" by the Spaniels pressed on red vinyl.

The red vinyl 45 that was included in the Vee-Jay Box Set, and also in the press kits of the time, was interesting. First of all, it was on clear red plastic with a slight purple tinge, not the opaque red that was pictured in their advertisements. The label was a reproduction of the 1953 label, and did not say "reproduction" or anything of the sort, so at first glance, it might be mistaken for an original. But there are two ways to differentiate it from an original. First, the label is glossier than the original. The sure giveaway, though, is that the original dead wax master number "53-112" and "VJ 107-A" (and the corresponding master numbers on the flip) are scratched out, with "MJS FIW" added in the dead wax. The single came in a grey and black "picture sleeve" with the oval logo repeated many times, with one white logo on the lower right of the picture sleeve. At the bottom of the back of the sleeve, it says, "Vee-Jay Limited Partnership, P.O. Box 1500, Radio City Station, New York, NY 10101-1500" and a copyright 1993 line below it.



The issues continued throughout 1993, but by January, 1994, the company was in financial trouble again. About March, 1994, the Partnership went into an extended period of inactivity. The Partnership was reactivated about 1998 under Michele Tayler Management.
