From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Glad All Over" is a song written by Aaron Schroeder, Sid Tepper, and Roy Bennett and recorded by rockabilly artist Carl Perkins at Sun Records in 1957. It was released as a single on January 6, 1958 (b/w "Lend Me Your Comb") and a performance of the song was featured on the 1957 film "Jamboree", where Perkins and his band perform the song in a recording studio; the scene is somewhat akin to Elvis Presley's studio performance in "Jailhouse Rock" along with Scotty Moore and Bill Black. The Carl Perkins band consisted of Carl Perkins on lead guitar and vocals, Jay Perkins on rhythm guitar, Clayton Perkins on upright bass, and W.S. "Fluke" Holland on drums, who later became the drummer for Johnny Cash, who called him "The Father of the Drums". "Glad All Over" was the last single Carl Perkins released on Sun Records. The recording was also released as a 45 in the UK on the London Records label.

The Beatles recorded Glad All Over on two occasions in 1963 for BBC radio sessions, with George Harrison on lead vocals. The first of these, recorded on July 16, 1963, was released in 1994 on the Live at the BBC collection. George Harrison also performed the song on the 1985 HBO/Cinemax cable special Blue Suede Shoes: A Rockabilly Session with Carl Perkins. The Jeff Beck Group recorded the song on the 1972 Epic album "Orange" produced by Steve Cropper. Brian Setzer performed the song at the Dallas Guitar Show on October 27, 1990 and recorded the song on his 2005 Rockabilly Riot!: Volume One album.
