AllMusic Review by

The Best of Vee-Jay Gospel, Vol. 2 collects original recordings from the '50s and '60s by the most inspired singers that made Chicago's Vee Jay one of the premier gospel labels. Among the 20 tracks on this volume are the Staple Singers' "Ain't That Good News," the Five Blind Boys of Alabama's "What He's Done for Me," the Highway QC's' "Nearer to Thee," and the Swan Silvertones' "Love Lifted Me." This consistently satisfying disc also features familiar spiritual tunes by the Argo Singers, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the Gospel Harmonettes, the Kingdom Bound Singers, and the Boyer Brothers.
