I'M SO GLAD

Latest update on 22/09/2014

Artist: Skip James
Author: Skip James
Label: Paramount
Year: 1931

During the same session he cut 20-20 Blues and Devil Got My Woman (see there). Paramount gave him the choice: either a percentage on any record sold (if ever it was decided to release anything in the first place), or $40 cash. An easy choice one year into the Great Depression! One of the forgotten bluesmen rediscovered in '64 by John Fahey and Canned Heat's Henry Vestine.

Covers:

1966:

Cream

1967:

Litter

1968:

SRC

1968:

Deep Purple [on debut album Shades Of Deep Purple]

1999:

Dave MacKenzie [in medley with Steel Guitar Rag]

2002:

Beck [in film Soul Of A Man]

Royalties for the Cream cover financed Skip James' hospital expenses ('67) and funeral ('69). Ida Cox's I'm So Glad (for Paramount in '29) was another song.
