The Supreme Jubilees - It'll All Be Over

"The Supreme Jubilees released "It'll All Be Over", their only album, in 1981. Straddling gospel and disco, it soars in the funky heavenly rafters of church." - Grinnell College Radio

"When the Jubilees's vocals meld together on the chorus: 'It'll all be over / And we won't have to cry no more.' it devastates, not from that admission of death, of burden being released, but because it signifies that sheer beauty of the beyond. It's about as close to a convincing argument I've encountered that the afterlife just might be better than life itself." - Pitchfork



One of these old days, yeah
One of these old days
We ain't gonna have to cry no more
You see God's gonna wipe away all our tears
He gonna wipe the tears, yeah
He gonna wipe the tears from your eyes
Do you hear me out there this evening
I said we ain't gonna cry
We ain't gonna cry no more

One of these old days, one of these old days
It'll all be over
It'll all be over
It'll all be over
And we won't have to cry no more
And we won't have to cry no more

Sometimes, sometimes
The burden it gets so heavy
But I wanna let you know this evening, yeah
I want to let you know
That if you can just hold on
Hold on a little while longer

Cause one of these old days, yeah
One of these old days
It'll all be over
It'll all be over
It'll all be over
And we won't have to cry no more
We ain't gonna have to cry no more
And we won't have to cry no more

Light in the Attic reissued the album in 2015. Buy the album
