Vee-Jay Album Discography, Part 4:
Gospel Series

by Mike Callahan and David Edwards
Last update: January 13, 2007

Some of the earliest 45s that Vee-Jay issued were religious music, variously termed "gospel" or "inspirational" music. In fact, it was this music that Vivian Carter initally was playing on her radio show in Gary, Indiana, that got Vee-Jay started as a label. Their gospel roster of stars is impressive, including the Staple Singers, Swan Silvertones, Five Blind Boys, and many others.

The Gospel Series used the Vee-Jay "script" label until LP-5005, and the "oval label" starting with LP- 5006 and running through LP-5036. The "brackets" label starts with LP-5037. Most of the gospel albums were issued in mono only (stereo issues were listed in the catalogs starting 5022, then jumping to 5046 in 1963). We have listed the albums we know were released in stereo with the stereo prefix, "SR-" or "VJS-". Others we believe to have been issued in mono only.

Prefixes on the record jackets tended toward "LP-" and "SR-", while on the record label itself "VJLP-" and "VJSR-" were used. At about number 5035, the covers began listing record prefixes as "VJLP-" also. We have listed the cover prefixes for simplicity.
