This brooding blues-rock ballad is despairing even by the standards of on-the-run road songs, finding the singer down to his last silver dollar, wearing clothes he doesn't even own. Co-written by Gregg Allman with Allman Brothers roadie Kim Payne, "Midnight Rider" became a hit in the early 1970s for both Joe Cocker and, as a solo recording, Gregg Allman himself. According to Allman, it wasn't written about a specific person but "seemed like the type of thing you'd listen to when you're traveling – I've always kind of dug that."
With storm trooper stomps and an irrepressibly upbeat chorus, "Glad All Over" became the first major British Invasion hit in the U.S. by a band other than the Beatles. It was also the song that knocked "I Want to Hold Your Hand" off the top of the British hit parade. "I was going through my record collection, and I saw the title 'Glad All Over,'" remembered Dave Clark Five singer Mike Smith. "I couldn't remember what the song was like, but I thought it was a great title. So I sat down at my dad's piano and wrote 'Glad All Over.'"
