Wilson, who had been recording since 1960, was afforded her first pop Top 40 hit with “How Glad I Am”:

  • (Nancy Wilson quote:)“I went into the studio with the idea of recording a Top 40 kind of hit [with ‘How Glad I Am’]. Actually though I didn’t sing any differently…..It’s the material itself that did it [along with] the arrangement.”[2]

In April 1965 “(You Don’t Know) How Glad I Am” received the Grammy Award for Best Rhythm & Blues Recording: Wilson was reportedly surprised by the categorization of “How Glad I Am” as R&B as she would have classed it as a pop record,[3] and the track had not been a major R&B hit peaking at No. 45 on the Cash Box R&B chart (the Billboard R&B chart was dormant throughout 1964).[4] Nancy Wilson would have one more Top 40 hit subsequent to “(You Don’t Know) How Glad I Am”: “Face It Girl, It’s Over”, which reached No. 29 in 1968.

×The single went to No. 11 on the Hot 100, as well as No. 2 on the Billboard Pop-Standard Singles chart.[5]
