New Les BaxterMaster Of The World ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real oddity – a soundtrack on Vee Jay records, the label best known for their groundbreaking work in soul, blues, and jazz. Even stranger, the score is for a schlocky Vincent Price film, based on a Jules Verne story – written by Les Baxter, in the flowery style he used for some of ...

Jerry ButlerMore Of The Best Of Jerry Butler ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Some of our favorite tunes ever by Jerry Butler – a great collection that brings together some of his hits and some of his lesser known work for Vee Jay. The Iceman style is very firmly in place here – and next to hits like "I Stand Accused" and "Need To Belong", ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul ChambersEase It (aka Go. . .) ... LP
Vee Jay/Yes To Jazz (Portugal), Late 50s. Very Good ... $7.99
A rare non-Blue Note date as a leader from bassist Paul Chambers – and one of his hardest cooking dates in the studio! The session breaks out a bit from some of Chambers' more concept-based work of the time – and has him opening up strongly with an all-star group that includes ...

Paul ChambersJust Friends ... LP
Trip/Vee Jay, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Very nice 2LP set that brings together material from Paul Chambers' great Vee Jay hardbop albums! Chambers only cut 2 records for the label, and they're both darn hard to find on vinyl – so the set's extra-nice because it might be the only way you'll find these hard-hitting sides on wax. ...

Gene ChandlerDuke Of Earl (Vee Jay) ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $19.99
A sweet soul classic from the young Gene Chandler! The record is built around Gene's hit "Duke Of Earl" – and it features Gene in a ridiculous looking "Duke" costume on the cover – but the record's a great one overall, and features some excellent late-night soul ...

New Betty Everett & Jerry ButlerDelicious Together ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Betty Everett and Jerry Butler certainly are delicious together – and the pair have more than enough great energy to hold on strong throughout this entire album of duets! Although Motown is probably best remembered as the home of the male/female duet mode of the 60s – Vee Jay certainly ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Eddie HarrisBossa Nova ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Eddie HarrisExodus To Jazz/Mighty Like A Rose ... CD
Vee Jay (Spain), 1961/1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although Exodus to Jazz was probably the biggest album of Eddie's career, we've always been a bit more partial to the excellent LP Mighty Like A Rose, which is combined here with Exodus for a very nice 2-fer CD of Eddie's work from his early days on the Chicago jazz scene. Both CDs feature Eddie's ... (Jazz) read more CD

Eddie HigginsEddie Higgins ... LP
Vee Jay, 1961. Very Good ... $4.99
Early genius from Eddie Higgins – a pianist who was a big thing on the Chicago scene of the 60s, but is probably best known to most folks for his revival records of the past decade or two! The younger Higgins has more of an edge than the later one – and this self-titled debut is a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John Lee HookerBurnin' ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Plenty of Burnin from John Lee Hooker, and about as classic as you can get for his Vee Jay years – especially considering that the album starts out with Hooker's killer cut "Boom Boom" – a number that may well have set fire to a whole generation of British and American rockers! ...

New John Lee HookerTravelin' ... LP
Vee Jay, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Rough and raw blues from John Lee Hooker – recorded with plenty of emphasis on gritty guitar and vocals, backed by a nicely understated rhythm section! The overall feel is a bit rootsier than some of the other blues work coming out from Chicago labels at the time – and Hooker's right ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightin' Hopkins/Brownie McGhee & Sonny TerryCoffee House Blues ... LP
Vee Jay, 1965. Sealed ... $11.99
Blues may not have been born in the coffee house, but by the early 60s it found a very welcome audience in that scene – thanks to growing interest in the genre by the younger folk generation! The album's liner notes by Barbara Dane are key proof of this fact – as are the album's ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy HughesSteal Away (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Vee Jay/Kent (UK), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Stellar work by Jimmy Hughes – one of those southern soul talents whose name you've heard, but can't always find on record! Jimmy's best known for his classic Muscle Shoals tune "Steal Away" – and that great number, plus many other similar ones, are presented on this obscure ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little RichardLittle Richard Is Back ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good ... $14.99
An early comeback for Little Richard – one of many over the years, and the one that's probably closest to the sound that first got him started! Although issued on Vee Jay in the 60s, the record's got less of a soul groove than you'd expect – and features Richard working on the west ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New MJT+3Make Everybody Happy ... LP
Vee Jay, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A Windy City classic – from Vee Jay Records! The MJT grooves like nobody's business, thanks to a core rhythm group that includes Harold Mabern on piano, Walter Perkins on drums, and Bob Cranshaw on bass! Add to the mix a young Frank Strozier on alto, fresh from Memphis (he made the trip to ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vee Jay, Late 50s. Very Good ... $48.99
One of Lee's totally great hard bop sessions for Vee Jay, recorded around the time of his best early work for Blue Note, and with a good hard group that includes Clifford Jordan on tenor, Eddie Higgins on piano, and Art Blakey on drums. The material's a tight set of tracks that includes originals ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A later Vee Jay album that appears to pull tracks from Morgan's first 2 records on the label – both of which were totally tight hardbop sessions, performed by top-line players like Art Blakey, Paul Chambers, Clifford Jordan, and Wynton Kelly. 6 tracks in all, very tight and energetic – ...

Billy PrestonMost Exciting Organ Ever ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
Well, we don't think we'd call this the most exciting organ ever – but the record is one of Billy's best, and it's got a hard wailing raw groove that's missing from a lot of his later work! There's a very churchy sound in the organ, with all the stops open and a very large sound coming out ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vee Jay, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Seminal work from the legendary Jimmy Reed – spare and bluesy numbers that were some of the best work coming out of Chicago at the time! There's a snapping quality to the rhythms here that was a keen inspiration to generations of better-known artists – and in a way, it's amazing to go ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A stone classic from Jimmy Reed – and one of the first few albums on the Vee Jay label! The sound is spare, rootsy, and bluesy – the kind of tunes that made Jimmy an instant favorite, and which were a key force in the Chicago blues sound of the 50s.

The birth of a genius!

Vee Jay/Mississippi, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Excellent early work from The Staple Singers – one of their first recordings, and an all-gospel album that's drenched in the same sort of soul that you'd hear on their big hits of later years – a key influence on the sound of the secular 60s, heard here in its best original format!

A seminal early recording from one of our favorite reed players ever! In the late 1950s, the young Frank Strozier came up to Chicago from Memphis, along with his longtime friend, pianist Harold Mabern. The two of them both settled nicely in the city's MJT+3 combo, where they proceeded to recorde ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A stark and jagged soundtrack for this mid 60s thriller that starred James Garner and Eva Marie Saint.
