Various Artists: Vee-Jay – The Definitive Collection
John Morthland, No Depression, 31 August 2007
VEE-JAY RECORDS of Chicago was not the first successful black-owned label – Duke-Peacock of Houston stakes a better claim to that title – but until Motown exploded, it was certainly the most successful. This four-disc box is unquestionably a definitive collection, far superior to 1993's three-CD The Vee-Jay Story.
