"Hush" was first written by Joe South and performed by Billy Joe Royal.
"I'm So Glad" is originally by Skip James, later performed by Cream.
"Hey Joe" is written by Billy Roberts, first performed by The Leaves and slightly later by Jimi Hendrix and others. Deep Purple's versions of the three songs are closer to Billy Joe Royal, Cream and Hendrix's versions than any other.
