AllMusic Review by

The Best of Vee-Jay Gospel, Vol. 3 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 Soul Stirrers' "Stand by Me," the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi's "All Up There," the Staple Singers' "Pray On," and the Gospel Harmonettes' "Room in Heaven for Me." This consistently satisfying disc also features familiar spiritual tunes by the Patterson Singers, Maceo Woods, the Boyer Brothers, the Caravans, the Highway Q.C.'s, Billy Preston, and the Lunenberg Travelers.
