We'll Get Over, the Staple Singers’ second album for Stax Records, captures the famous Chicago family group in transition. It was their last before Pervis departed and was replaced by sister Yvonne. Backed by producer Steve Cropper on guitar, bassist Duck Dunn, drummer Al Jackson, Jr., and Rufus Thomas’s son Marvell on keyboards, the quartet divides its repertoire between message songs and covers of such other artists’ material. Mavis’s emotion-gripping contralto is featured on most tracks, while Roebuck’s breathy low tenor leads on two. The original 1969 album is reissued herein, along with two bonus selections from the following year: the Al Kooper-penned-and-produced "Brand New Day" and seasonal "Who Took the Merry Out of Christmas."
Roebuck, Mavis, Cleotha, and Pervis Staples with Marvell Thomas, Steve Cropper, Donald "Duck" Dunn, Al Jackson, Jr.
