“He’ll Understand”

Joyce Barrett

Sharper Brothers

Joyce Barrett of Houston, Texas, does some fine old-school singing on “He’ll
Understand,” which on the CD single is credited to other writers, but
presumably for the arrangement—the song is properly attributed to longtime
National Baptist Convention music department leader Lucie Eddie Campbell, who
wrote it in 1933.

Backed by a pumping band and a gospel quartet (with Roy Reed as executive
producer of the single, could the BGVs be labelmates the Zion Jubilees?),
Barrett gives the song an uptempo, quartet style treatment. She repeats the
“Oh, when I come to the end of my journey” verse over and over, and it would
have been ideal to hear the other verses, but nevertheless, she puts the song
in full gear and sells it during the vamp.
