AllMusic Review by

The Best of Vee-Jay Gospel, Vol. 4 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 Gospel Harmonettes' "Give an Account of Your Sins," the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi's "Old Time Religion," the Staple Singers' "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," and the Swan Silvertones' "Oh Mary, Don't You Weep." 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, the Southern Bell Singers, and the Sallie Martin Singers.
