Cream/Deep Purple: I'm So Glad.
"I'm So Glad" was recorded by Cream on their first album, Fresh Cream, then later put on their last studio album Goodbye as a live performance.
Deep Purple version:
"I'm So Glad" was also recorded by Deep Purple in 1968 for their debut album Shades of Deep Purple. The Skip James-song itself starts after a medley consisting of excerpts from the instrumental arrangement of Rimsky-Korsakov's classical Scheherezade. This medley named "Prelude: Happiness", stretches the song ove seven-minutes.
